She wrote, “Our family is happy and so are we but given circumstances our heart goes out to all the people who are fighting for their lives right now and to all the families who lost their loved ones . Our prayers with all of you and a small contribution from our side as the money we were to spend for our marriage function we are donating to people who are in need now.

Earlier talking to indianexpress.com, Banerjee had shared, “I must share that Kunal Verma is the most supportive person in my life. If it wasn’t for him, I don’t think I would have been able to achieve so much. I really feel that a girl needs support from her man and Kunal has been with me throughout. He never asks any questions and blindly backs me in my career. I really feel happy and lucky to have him in my life.”
