Entertainment Desk: Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja got married on May 8 this year after dating for almost 2-3 years. Even though the couple had been dating for that long and their social media posts were testament of that fact, they never publicly admitted to it, till their families made an official announcement of their wedding on May 1.
The couple had an intimate wedding in the midst of close friends and family at Sonam’s aunt, Kavita Singh’s bungalow, in Bandra. Within a few hours after the wedding, Sonam changed her social media handles to Sonam K Ahuja.
Upon doing so many questioned her rush to change her last name. They also questioned her decision to take her husband’s surname and questioned if it was in line with her feminist thought process. Sonam then broke her silence on the topic of adding her husband’s last name to her name in an interview with India Today from Cannes Film Festival. She 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.”
Furthermore, she said that it was her choice to adopt her husband’s last name. She said, “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?” We wonder what Sonam meant with that statement.
Meanwhile, the diva is making heads turn with her red carpet appearances. The newly married couple, in the meantime, has been giving us major couple goals by indulging in some lovable conversations on social media. While Anand mentioned how he is motivated and inspired by Sonam and her team, Sonam shared that she has been missing her hubby dead.
According to reports, the couple will be spending time between London, Mumbai and New Delhi.
