Things we know about Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s relationship
Social media is all abuzz about the latest celeb wedding, this time the rumoured nuptials of star Sonam Kapoor to her beau Anand Ahuja. One look at the Kapoor’s house and you can feel the wedding vibes – the house is dazzling with lights and music. We do know quite a bit of both the star and the entrepreneur, but what do we know about their story? We give you the well-guarded details below!
1. The love between a commoner and a princess of Bollywood
In 2016 Sonam Kapoor was spotted with someone unknown at a party thrown by Akshay Kumar to celebrate Rustom’s success. Sonam and her Mr Unknown were clicked while partying with guests, including the most important guest, Will Smith. The rumour mill worked overtime to find the identity of Mr Unknown. Very soon it was found out he is Anand Ahuja, an entrepreneur from Delhi.
Sonam belongs to the Kapoor clan, one of the most powerful families in Bollywood. She has been a celebrity since her birth. She re-affirmed her position by being a successful actress and the style icon of her generation. No one expected her to be serious about someone out of the limelight like Anand.

Anand is becoming a big name in athleisure wear. Sonam has an understanding of fashion. Apart from fashion, they also share interests of fitness routines and outdoor activities.
7. Falling in love with Geneva
Recently, Sonam was in Geneva, Switzerland for a brand endorsement. She instantly fell in love with the place and decided to get married there. Her wish is, of course, a command for beau Anand. So it was decided they will have a destination wedding.
8. The nation is waiting for the May wedding
Both the Ahuja and Kapoor families have been busy shopping for the wedding for a few months, although the date and place were not fixed. Now the place is fixed. The traditional Hindu wedding ceremonies will be held spread over two days, 11th and 12th May. Father Anil Kapoor is inviting guests personally. Venues of the ceremonies are booked. The mass bookings for flights are to be done very soon. The engagement ceremony venue has not been disclosed.
