Friends Turned Life Partners: Sonam Kapoor Wedding With Anand Ahuja

Bollywood’s fashionista and daughter of a legendary actor Sonam Kapoor recently tied the knot with her long-time beau Anand Ahuja, the founder, and owner of Bhane. Bhane is a well-known clothing brand, and after Sonam started dating Anand, the brand was seen adorned by her several times. Sonam Kapoor Wedding was in a lavish style on May 8th, 2018. Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja were in a relationship for a couple of years. Sonam always turned a blind-eye when every time about her love-life, but the PDAs on social media was enough for people to know and see.

Sonam and Anand came to know each other through their familiar friend Pernia Qureshi in 2014. Pernia was Sonam’s stylist and also a close friend to Anand. After knowing each other for a month, Anand made the first move and proposed Sonam. This is where the tables turned, and thus, the starting of a new love bloomed. Both Sonam and Anand made their first public appearance when they attended the Rustom success bash in 2016. After that, the rumors already spread like wildfire about them, but Sonam did not think of addressing them.

During an interview, Sonam expressed her thoughts, saying that even though it’s under her control, she does not wish to talk about herself and also about the individual who is involved. She also added that whatever will be thrown towards the world will be done with “his” permission and her permission as well. Sonam later on clarified that she will not provide any information about the person when she is questioned publicly.

Later on, the duo was spotted together at an Art Fair in March 2017. It made everyone have a clear picture that they were not afraid of making a public appearance, even when they kept their mouth completely shut about their affair. However, unlike Sonam, Anand was not that cautions for which he publicly declared on a magazine that he has “Millennial crush” on Sonam. However, Anand was always spotted on numerous events and occasions conducted by the Kapoor household. 

Next step: Marriage

Once their rumors and stories about their relationship were made public, the couple planned to give their fans and the media a big surprise. The Kapoor family released an official statement, which confirmed the wedding between Anand Ahuja and Sonam Kapoor. They also marked the wedding to be an “intimate affair” and requested everyone to provide a great deal of privacy for the couple. The Kapoor family booked a five-star hotel near the Sahar airport in Mumbai, where all the pre-wedding ceremonies were conducted.

Anand and Sonam got hitched in a traditional Sikh wedding at Mumbai. The “Anand Karaj” ritual took place at Sonam’s aunt, Kavita Singh’s beautiful bungalow. Since the wedding was close-knit, so all the activities performed in the wedding covered by a barrier of protection. The wedding was conducted between 11 am to 12:30 pm on Tuesday and was attended by all the heavyweights and legends of Bollywood, followed by close friends and family.

Once the wedding ceremony ended, both Sonam and Anand made their first public appearance as a married couple on their reception in Mumbai. The reception was pictured as star-studded, and the newly married couple dressed with the shades of black and metallic gray.

Vidya Balan, Rani Mukherji, Shahid Kapoor, and Mira Rajput, Karan Johar, Kareena Kapoor, and many more attended the wedding reception.
