During Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo promotions, Sonam Kapoor’s friend had tried to set her up with a guy, who had shared the same interests as the diva. With no interest in meeting the guy, Sonam was conned to come to a hotel, where she was set up to meet ‘the guy’ and a middleman. Surprisingly, it was the middleman with whom Sonam connected more and then two weeks later, they had realised how their every day is phenomenal with each other. And that middleman was none other than Sonam’s now-husband, Anand S Ahuja. (Also Read: Sonam Kapoor's Mother, Sunita Kapoor Shares Beautiful Throwback Pictures On Her Second Anniversary)
Met around four-and-a-half-years back and married for two years now, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Anand S Ahuja have effortlessly earned that sobriquet with the love, respect and their ‘everyday phenomenal’ journey of togetherness. From stolen kisses and warm embraces to smashing the norms and changing names post-marriage, the most unconventional couple of B-town, Sonam and Anand are totally smitten by each other and are synonymous to the term, ‘Relationship Goals’.
It was on May 8, 2018, when Sonam Kapoor had added Ahuja to her name and Anand Ahuja had added S to his name, which is the initial of his wife’s name. May 8, 2020, marks to be Sonam and Anand’s second anniversary and to make this day special, the former posted her ‘first picture together’ with her boyfriend-turned-husband. Sonam captioned her post as “Our first picture together.. 4 years ago today I met a vegan who could do complicated yoga positions and speak about retail and business with the same ease. I found him unbelievably cool and sexy., he still makes my heart race and grounds me at the same time. Nothing compares to you @anandahuja , your compassion, kindness, generosity and smarts are incredibly attractive but so is your moodiness and your annoying perfectionism.”
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja thanked her husband for being by her side for these four years and concluded her anniversary note with “Thank you for being my partner and standing besides me for these 4 years. They have been my most fulfilling. Happy happy anniversary husband. I’m soo thrilled I get to keep you for the rest of my life. I love you the most and I know you love me the best and the most. That I promise you is the greatest gift I’ve ever received. #everydayphenomenal.” On which, Anand S Ahuja commented, “Just getting started my (bunny emoji)! Can’t get enough of you! #EverydayPhenomenal.” (Also Read: Kareena Kapoor Khan And Karisma Kapoor's Unseen Pic From A Family Wedding Shows Their Bond)
Posting a monochrome family picture with husband, Anand Ahuja, her parents and in-laws, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja wrote, "Aspiration and inspiration for the future.. thank you parents for being the best kind of role models. We are because of you. #everydayphenomenal."
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja had received an early anniversary present from her darling husband, Anand S Ahuja. Sonam had posted a video of her anniversary gift i.e., a Nintendo Switch with her favourite games on it, including Legend of Zelda and Mario Kart on her Insta story and we can hear her squealing excitedly, “This is my anniversary present.” Sonam had written, “@anandahuja knows me too well… Love you so much” atop of her story followed by an array of hearts. Here’s a screenshot of the same:
To mark her first anniversary, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja had posted an unseen video, comprising of her wedding memories with Anand S Ahuja. Sonam had captioned it as “My Darling @anandahuja no one makes me feel as loved and cherished as you do. The kind of confidence and fulfilment I get from our relationship is unprecedented. I drowned myself in stories and lived in my dreams my whole life, And you came into my life and pulled me into a reality which was actually as beautiful as the best fairytale ever. You are, my ever after. I love you sweetheart happy anniversary.”
Anand S Ahuja had posted the first-anniversary wish for his ‘guiding light’, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja with some of his favourite ‘shoefies’ with her. He had written, “Some of my favorite #shoefies w my (bunny emoji) (scroll right to see our first one ever) ... I love posting these not because I love shoes (and you KNOW I love shoes) but because the idea of looking down reminds me to stay present, grounded and most importantly grateful! I could tell you exactly where we were and what we were feeling at the time I took these.... Today, to reflect on 1 year of marriage and 3 years being together - nothing could be more of a blessing than to have your life partner be your best friend and also be the person that is supportive but pushes you to be better... to be the person that is unconditionally loving but will tell you when you're wrong ... and to be the person that will lead you into and through your fears - not allowing you to run away from them. Happy Anniversary to my (heart emoji) @sonamkapoor .. you're my guiding star! #everydayphenomenal!”
Elaborating on her journey of falling in love with Anand Ahuja, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja had posted a picture from her photoshoot and had revealed what happened when she had taken a break after the release of Neerja to soak in the success. Sonam had captioned her monochrome picture as “One of my favourite portraits, I was at my most pensive, it was a day or two after #neerja released, despite the success and adulation I wasn’t feeling ecstatic.. @rammadhvani said it was a feeling of equanimity which is good. I took a year off to feel something better than what I was feeling , in that journey in falling in love with who I was I meet my life partner @anandahuja . This picture is a symbol of a crossroads to the journey of fulfilment, that doesn’t come with work or a relationship, it comes with being someone who doesn’t need any of the above to complete them but someone who is inspired by themselves to feel complete.” Anand had commented, “So emooooo my (bunny emoji) ! @sonamkapoor ... not so emo now , na! #EverydayPhenomenal.” She replied in affirmative, “@anandahuja not emo now at all..” (Also Read: Raveena Tandon's Reply To A Fan's Marriage Proposal Will Surely Make Her Hubby, Anil Thadani Smile)
