After months of speculations about Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s wedding, the couple finally tied the knot on May 8, 2018 in a Sikh ceremony at Sonam’s aunt, Kavita Singh’s plush bungalow in Bandra.
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.
Just 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’.
Recently, the actress finally opened up about taking her husband Anand Ahuja’s surname in an interview with a leading publication. She had said, “I have been engaged for a long time. It took me a long time to decide. It’s a choice, at the end of the day.”
The Veere Di Wedding actress further added, “And if people don’t understand the concept of feminism, they need to go online and look at the description. And how do you know Anand has not changed his name?”

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.
Though Sonam and Anand had known each other since 2014, but 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 give a hint to everyone about their alleged love affair.
