Breaking all stereotypes and myths, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja went on to tie the knot with the love of her life, Anand S Ahuja at the peak of her career. How beautiful and perfect life looks when you fall in love with a person and also get a chance to be with him for the rest of your life. Such is the love story of Bollywood beauty, Sonam Kapoor. After dating London-based businessman, Anand Ahuja for a while, Sonam took the wedding vows with him on May 9, 2018. To give you all an update, they have been successfully managing their long-distance marriage.
In an interview with Filmfare, Anand Ahuja shared how they manage to keep up with their marriage. Anand had shared, “When it comes to marriage, small things matter a lot. We eat meals together, even if we are in different time zones, on Skype. We also actively make sure that we don’t go over two weeks without seeing each other.” (Also Read: Sonali Bendre's Hubby, Goldie Behl Feels Privileged To Share His Life With Her Due To This Reason)
It is also to be mentioned here that in July 2018, Sonam had shared an Insta story, wherein she and her 'prince charming' were enjoying a lunch date over Skype. Atop the snap, Sonam wrote, “@ANANDAHUJA, lunchtime Skype with him #LongDistanceRelationship”. Here’s her story:
Sonam is spending some lovely quality time with her hubby, Anand as they are vacationing in abroad. She has been quite active in posting her Insta stories and one of the same grabbed all the eyeballs.

In an interview with Vogue, Sonam had revealed the details of their first date and stated, “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… That day, walking and talking in London, I knew he was the love of my life. He apparently knew the first time we spoke on the phone… It was just so easy”. Adding further she said, “He makes clothes—and I wear them! He comes from a business background, so that’s alien to me. I’m the third generation in a film family. So, there’s a lot to talk about, a lot to discover about each other, but we have a lot of similarities.”
Revealing the qualities of her husband, Sonam was quoted as saying, “He’s non-judgmental—with everybody. Very open-minded and progressive. I’m a little conservative and close-minded about a few things, and he’s taught me to see the other side, to look at things with a lot more compassion and care, to be a little more pragmatic and practical, as I can be very emotional and quick to judge sometimes, which is not nice.” (You May Also Like: Sushmita Sen And Rohman Shawl Are Madly In Love With Each Other, This Video Is The Proof)
Sharing her views on why she added Anand’s surname to hers, she told Firstpost, "Anand and I had a very long conversation you know, and we obviously 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.”
She further continued, “So first he said, shall I do Anand Ahuja Kapoor or Anand Kapoor Ahuja? And you do Sonam Kapoor Ahuja? I was like, that’s still my father’s name, no? How will my kids have my name in some way? Then he said, should I keep Sonam in the middle? So, I said fine." In the same interaction, Sonam went on to share that they will have ‘Sonam Ahuja’ as the last name of their babies in future. Sonam shared, "Yes. I don’t know if that makes any sense to you, but we really thought about it. If and when we have children, that’s how it will be."
