On March 25, 2020, Anand Ahuja took to his Instagram handle and posted adorable pictures of his parents, Sunil Ahuja and Priya Ahuja standing with his in-laws, Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor. In the picture, we can see all four of them joining their hands in prayers.

Going further in his long note, Anand Ahuja stressed on the fact that we, as humans don’t value the things that we have in our hands and instead run off the things that we don’t need in real. His note further stated, “No matter who, everyone is exposed ... and the only way to move forward, is to come together with a joint determination to be caring for one another, to be grateful for all the things that we once considered “normal”, to be understanding of other people’s positions and most importantly to be helpful, in every way possible, to our fellows. The people we often took for granted are risking their lives to endure the rest of us can meet everyday needs. Let’s be careful with how we use resources and the more we can help others control the situation, the sooner we will win this “war”. .. Do not be fearful, be attentive and be caring. Be sparing with the consumption of resources and indulgent with the sharing of them. Pray for all to be safe and near their families.” The heart-warming post has been shared by most of the members of the two families and his doting wife, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja also shared the post in one of her stories. Take a look.
There’s no question to the fact that it is the most beautiful thing to read on the internet today. Both Anand and Sonam are extremely close with their in-laws, and a lot of its credit goes to their concrete bond. In an interview with Firstpost, Sonam had talked about adding her husband’s surname to her name, and Anand adding her name into his. She had stated, "Anand and I had a very long conversation you know, and we want to have kids eventually, and he had this one friend who had a very long name, his mother’s name, father’s name, blah blah blah. I said, see anyways it’s a patriarchal concept, I have my father’s last name, I don’t have my mother’s name, and I want to be part of your family as well, and he wanted to be a part of mine.”
The actress had also shared her thoughts on a much-asked question, whether the times are changing as actresses are tying the knot at the peak of their career or not? To which Sonam had replied, “People are still asking me these questions, which is sad. I don’t know if it’s changed that much. I know that Kajol, Dimple Kapadia, Nargis, Nutan and Waheeda Rehman have continued with their career post marriage. Madhuri (Dixit-Nene) did Devdas after tying the knot. But it’s still a long way to go. And we, as women, need to come together and be stronger. The choice shouldn’t be taken away. I hope to set an example by coming straight out of my wedding and doing what I do best.” (Also Read: Shahid Kapoor's Wife, Mira Rajput Shows How Love Is Looking Like At The Time Of Coronavirus Lockdown)
