Bollywood starlet Sonam Kapoor’s wedding to long-time beau Anand Ahuja became the talking point on the internet back in May. Needless to say, with who’s who of Bollywood and crème de la crème of Indian society present at the reception, social media had become flooded with pictures and videos of the gala celebration for days. And that was nice as it gave Sonam’s fans a chance to be a part of her big day.
It’s been nearly two months since now and it looks like the starlet has finally received the professional photos from her wedding, considering how active she’s been on Instagram lately. Sonam has been sharing the endearing clicks just like any other over-excited new bride and in one of the photos, we see her performing a ritual while Anand looks on from the side. Said picture also has Rani Mukerji in it, reported The Indian Express.
“Anand is so encouraging when it comes to my work that he didn’t blink when I told him I was flying to Cannes two days after the wedding or that I was getting into promotions straightaway. There was no argument, just acceptance—you gotta do what you gotta do.” #EverydayPhenomenal @anandahuja For @VogueIndia
In the photo’s caption, Sonam sang praises for Anand and how he is supportive of everything her career as an actor requires. “Anand is so encouraging when it comes to my work that he didn’t even blink when I told him I was flying to Cannes two days after our wedding or that I was getting into promotions straightaway,” she wrote. “There was no argument…just acceptance. You gotta do what you gotta do.”
The Veere Di Wedding actor also gushed about Anand in an interview with Vogue India. Recalling with their first date, Sonam revealed, “I was apparently wearing the worst sneakers he had ever seen. I keep telling him that he fell in love with me despite my bad sneaker game. But that day, walking and talking in London, I knew he was the love of my life. Anand apparently knew it the first time we spoke on the phone… It was just so easy.”
Thank you Shalini for this beautifully written piece. I love the way you’ve articulated our journey and we are forever grateful to you and the entire Vogue team. @shallfall @anandahuja #EverydayPhenomenal @anandahuja For @VogueIndia
Mind you, it isn’t just Sonam that is giving us major #relationshipgoals. Anand also seems to be just as smitten by his new bride, judging from his additions to the interview. “The first time we met, we talked about our respective work and I was just struck by the fact that I could speak to her so openly about everything,” shared the businesses man. “We were chatting on Snapchat one night and she said, ‘Stop texting, just call me.’ And we spoke for two hours that night! Our friendship started over superficial things like vegan chocolates and sneakers but soon, we were having deeper conversations.”
Anand went on to reveal how Sonam is the one person who always has his back in life. He said, “She gives me a lot of confidence. Sonam’s very black and white. She knows what’s wrong and what’s right and is not afraid to say it.”
