Sonam Kapoor and her longtime beau Anand Ahuja tied the knot on May 8, 2018 in a Sikh ceremony at Sonam’s aunt, Kavita Singh’s plush bungalow in Mumbai.
Post the wedding, the couple hosted a grand reception party at The Leela Hotel in Mumbai and it was indeed a starry affair. Bollywood biggies like Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Karan Johar, Jacqueline Fernandez, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor and many more had come together to celebrate the big day of the newlywed couple.
Just like any other red carpet event in the tinsel town, Sonam’s wedding festivities too invited a lot of fanfaronade. All those who were desperately waiting for Sonam Kapoor’s wedding got the chance to be a part of the celebrations through several photos and videos that surfaced on the social media. And looking at the videos, one can definitely admit that Sonam’s wedding festivities were a medley of fun, glamour and power-packed performances.
Soon after her wedding day, Sonam took it to her social media account to change her name from Sonam Kapoor to Sonam K Ahuja. And the netizens were quick to notice the same and started questioning her decision to take her husband’s surname and even questioned her ‘feminism’.
Amidst the entire buzz that was going on over the actress’ decision of changing her surname, Sonam’s hubby, Anand too took it to his social media on Thursday to change his name from ‘Anand Ahuja’ to ‘Anand S Ahuja’on social media.
Even Sonam couldn’t control her emotions on seeing him change his name on social media and took it to her Instagram account and shared, “This is why he’s the man’. However, the actress deleted the post later.

Well, that’s indeed adorable. We must say that Sonam is lucky to have got such a doting husband like Anand.
Recently, the actress finally opened up about adopting her husband Anand Ahuja’s surname in an interview with a leading web portal. She said, “I’ve always maintained that I’m a feminist. I have a choice to change my name when I want to do it. The fact is that Kapoor is also my father’s surname. So, I chose to keep both. And just to be a part of our family, Anand has also changed his name. But nobody wrote about that! My husband or his family has not asked me to do anything. Likewise, he did it on his own. We anyway take our father’s names, so if we can give that respect to them, we can give the same respect to our husbands, too. It’s my personal choice and somebody judging me for it is ridiculous.”
In a talk with a leading tabloid, Sonam said, “Kapoor is also my father’s name, so it’s a man’s name anyway. I chose to keep both. Anand has also changed his name but nobody wrote about that. I just decided to do it on social media because that’s my platform, to say that I’ve made a choice. It’s my personal choice, nobody put a gun to my head… You should ask him (Anand), he has also changed his name and decided to add something as well.”
