Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor and business man Anand Ahuja are all set to tie the knot on May 8 in Mumbai.
In a statement released by the Kapoors and the Ahujas, it was revealed that the wedding will be an intimate affair. But if the popularity of Sonam and her star-studded family are any indication, the wedding will be attended by the who’s who of Bollywood.
The statement read, ” The Kapoor & Ahuja families, take great joy and pride, in announcing the marriage of Sonam & 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.
Recently, a Bollywooodlife report claimed that the Kapoor family has approached celebrity choreographer Farah Khan for the sangeet ceremony.
Reportedly, Sonam and Anand have ditched the idea of wedding cards as they plan to go green and send e-invites to people in order to save papers.
At the launch of the trailer of Veere Di Wedding, Sonam had said that everyone will know everything in due time. Even her father, Anil Kapoor had said the same a few days ago. Guess now is the time as the wedding is only a few days away.
Speculations were well under way after pictures of Sonam’s residence getting decorated were seen everywhere on social media. Various celebrities were also spotted at the Kapoor residence and this sparked rumours even further.
Uptil now, Sonam had never been vocal about her relationship with Anand. Being a public figure, Sonam knows how one’s statements are dissected once they start talking about their personal lives and so she has always refrained from talking about Anand in public. In fact, in one of her early appearances on Koffee with Karan, she had categorically stated that “it’s tacky” to talk about the person you’re seeing in public. It was in 2010 when she went on to say, “The reason it’s called private and personal is because it’s private and personal,” and she maintained that stance until beau Anand Ahuja started making appearances on her Instagram.
