Sonam and Anand redefined love for all of us when they stole each other's name after their grand wedding in May 2018. While changing name after marriage is a common thing for a girl to do, Anand made quite a stir when he changed his name. Since then there Instagram feeds depict their cute love story and how they are keeping up with the long-distance game.
On August 28, 2019, Anand took to his Instagram handle and shared what he does when he misses his dear wife, Sonam. He posted a couple of Instagram stories, wherein, we can see him watching his ladylove's movie. He captioned the pictures as, "@sonamkapoor missing you! Good thing is, when I do, I can watch you." Take a look at the stories below:
In a post-marriage interview with Elle magazine, Anand had talked about his long-distance marriage with Sonam, and had revealed, “Long distance can get tiring, but we're lucky that Delhi, London and Mumbai are all home, for work. It could be worse, but it obviously could be better. It's hard to not be together, especially after you get around to being married and you want to have that time. But Sonam's got a hectic schedule this year — she's got four films coming up. But we make it work. We have certain tricks — for example, we always have a meal together over Skype.” (Also Read: Neha Dhupia Twins With Baby Girl, Mehr Dhupia Bedi, Calls Her The Best Gift She Could Have Asked For)
He had further added, “If she's in India and I'm in London, then we do my lunch and her dinner, or she'll do her lunch and my breakfast. So those small things — even if you keep 30-40 minutes aside — changes everything, because you get that dedicated time. It's that consistency you build over time which can really help. When we first met, we would go as long as three to five weeks without seeing each other, and I realised that Sonam gets really impatient after two weeks. So, now we try to not make it go longer than two weeks, and taking short trips help in that sense.”
Anand had also revealed how Sonam is the constant source of inspiration in his life, and had stated, “When Sonam and I first spoke, I was inspired by her, and that's something I always wanted in a partner. She's been working since she was 17-18 years; she's gone through so much, and she's built herself that way. I met Sonam two and a half years ago, and before that, around five-six years ago, I didn't know Anil Kapoor was her dad. I knew them both as actors, but not part of the same family. So Sonam is definitely where I drive my inspiration from. Even her dad, he's all about work, and her mom is so smart, she runs the house. My dad and Sonam are similar in that way — they're both very competitive. My mom, on the other hand, is the support system that made my dad who he is today.” (Don't Miss: Charu Asopa Sen And Rajeev Sen's Passionate Liplock At Their Dreamy European Honeymoon Is Beautiful)
