One of the most popular couples in the tinsel town, Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja, who have been in a relationship for almost four years but always remained tight-lipped about it, are all set to tie the knot on May 8 in Mumbai. The wedding will be a private affair and will only be attended by the close members of the two families.
Since there are merely two days left in Sonam and Anand’s wedding, Kapoors have completely dived into the festive mood. The wedding preparations are in full swing with the who’s who of Bollywood visiting Anil Kapoor’s residence every now and then.
Last night, Arjun Kapoor and Karan Johar were snapped arriving at Anil Kapoor’s Juhu residence to be a part of the pre-wedding celebrations. The two were later joined in by Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez for the Sangeet Rehearsals. To share a glimpse of the ‘Shaadi Wala Ghar’ and the dance rehearsals, Karan Johar and Varun Dhawan even took it to their social media accounts and posted a couple of videos which are now going viral on the internet.
Coming back to Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja, have you ever thought how did the two meet each other and ended up falling in love?
Here’s how it all happened:
As per reports, it is being said that Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja first met in 2014 when a mutual friend, Pernia Qureshi introduced them to each other. Pernia, who was styling Sonam back then, was close friends with Anand Ahuja. Within a month of being introduced to her, Anand proposed to Sonam Kapoor, as per reports. The two have been dating each other ever since and will soon tie the knot.
Though Sonam and Anand had known each other since 2014, they only made their public appearance in 2016 at Akshay Kapoor’s bash in honour of Will Smith. After that, they were also seen holding hands at Sonam Kapoor’s cousin, Akshay Marwah’s Roka ceremony which was enough to hint everyone about their alleged love affair.
It was only recently on May 1, 2018, when the two families put the speculations to rest and released a joint statement about Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s, confirming the date of their marriage. The statement read, “The Kapoor and Ahuja families take great joy and pride, in announcing the marriage of Sonam and Anand. The wedding will take place on the 8th of May in Mumbai. Since it is an intimate affair, we request you to respect the family’s need for privacy. Thank you for all your blessings and love, as we celebrate this special moment in our lives.”
The first wedding ceremony will be the Mehendi ceremony which will take place on May 7. The venue for the same is Sunteck Island, BKC. The rituals will begin at 4 pm. Followed by Mehendi is the wedding ceremony, which is scheduled to take place on May 8, in the morning. And as reported before, it will take place at Rockdale, Bandra, which is also Sonam’s aunt’s bungalow. The wedding rites will begin at 11 am and will go on till 12:30 pm. After the wedding, the two families will host a reception party, the same day in the evening. The venue for the party is The Leela, Mumbai. The party will kick-start at 8 pm.
