Actor couple Debina Bonnerjee and Gurmeet Choudhary left their fans in a state of confusion as well as awe when they recently posted a picture of them dressed in traditiona­l Bengali wedding attire.“It was just a reel wedding for our short film,” clarifies Bonnerjee, who got married to Choudhary in a low-key temple ceremony 10 years ago.

Elaboratin­g further, she says, “Our director (Ram Kamal Mukherjee of Subho Bijoya) is also a bengali, and he knew all the nittygritt­y of a Bengali wedding. Everything was arranged from Kolkata, the outfit which Gurmeet was wearing was a special groom’s attire which came from Kolkata. It didn’t feel like we were shooting”.

Bonnerjee fell in love with Choudhary while working on the mythologic­al show, Ramayan, following which they got married in 2011. And she exclaims that getting married again on-screen brought many memories back. “At that time, we both were so mesmerised. The whole evening we just kept talking and just clicking videos and pictures. I have even kept the bride’s attire from the shoot with me,” she says.

Ask her if it nudged her to renew the wedding vows, this time with a Bengali ceremony, and she says, “No, we don’t plan to do anything like that.”
