It is rightly said that when two people are made for each other, they are bound to meet by hook or by crook. We see love stories taking many shapes in the movies or for that matter, love stories of the early times about how Heer-Ranjha, Laila-Majnu, Romeo-Juliet, etc. had given a new definition to love altogether. And then comes our favourite celeb couples from the showbiz, whom people look up to and get inspired from. Such hale and hearty is the love story of Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Anand S Ahuja.
Sonam and Anand entered the wedlock on May 8, 2018, in a Sikh wedding (Anand Karaj) ceremony. Right from managing their long-distance marriage superbly to giving some cues about social media PDA, Sonam and Anand are a one of a kind couple. Ever since their marriage, Sonam had been sharing details as to how her love story with Anand began.

Sonam, in a one-to-one conversation with Filmfare, tunnelled more into the first meeting with Anand and things that happened prior to that. During the course of interaction, she revealed that Anand was trying to set her up for his best friend but fell in love with her himself. The Neerja actress was quoted as saying, "My friends were trying to set me up with Anand's best friend. That's how I met him. The first time I met Anand was while I was busy with the promotions of Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015). One evening my friends conned me into visiting a bar at the Taj.”
She had further added, “I went there quite irritated. When I reached there, I realised my friends had called these two-three boys whom I had no interest in meeting. I was like, 'I don't want to date anybody. I don't believe in marriage and all this nonsense'. I saw Anand and his friend. His friend was tall like me, liked reading like me and was a huge fan of Hindi movies. He was an educated and a nice guy."

Sonam went on to share that the guy reminded her of brother Harshvardhan Kapoor and at the very instinct, she firmly decided not to date him. Sonam remarked, "Sometimes, people believe that when they have similar interests, they can be together. No one would think of Anand and me together because Anand is totally different. He had no idea that Anil Kapoor was my father. I ended up speaking to Anand the whole evening. Anand was trying to get me to talk to his friend...like being the middleman. But we ended up talking more."
The 34-year-old actress further revealed that Anand had messaged her on Facebook at 2:30 am and she had acted like a teacher. Here’s what she revealed, "Then one day I got a Facebook request from Anand saying, 'Hey! Are you still single? Because so and so is still single and if you're ever in London, please connect with him.' That message came at 2:30 am. I messaged him saying that first you shouldn't be messaging me so late in the night.” (Don't Miss: Arjun Kapoor And Malaika Arora Enjoy Romantic Dinner Date In New York, He Says She Has All His Heart)
She had further added, "I'm like a schoolteacher in matters like these. Don't mess with me so late in the night. And if the friend is interested then he should message me himself. Why are you messaging me? That's how the conversation started. We began talking on the phone. Then we met. Two weeks later, we were talking on the phone when I asked him, 'Do you still want me to talk to your friend?' He said, 'No, No! Not at all. Talk to me. I'm keeping you for myself.'"
On the work front, Sonam will next be seen in The Zoya Factor. Talking about her career, she revealed that people always think she is born with the silver spoon, but she has auditioned for every film she has done. The Delhi 6 actress said, “Initially, when I came in the industry, everyone said she’s born with a silver spoon, they alleged nepotism, etc. They didn’t know that I had auditioned for Saawariya (2007), I had auditioned for Delhi 6 (2009) and that I’ve auditioned for every film I’ve worked in. I just was able to have the initial meeting. That was it. When Delhi 6 was being made, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra had Rang De Basanti behind him.” (Checkout: Shah Rukh Khan Shares The Best Advice For College Kids On Daughter, Suhana Khan's Graduation Day)
She had further added, “He was the biggest filmmaker that time. Every heroine wanted to do that film. But I was signed before Sawaariya released. I don’t even remember how many auditions I gave for the part. Even for Saawariya, I was auditioned with Ranbir Kapoor. Honestly, I got those films on my own merit. Then I Hate Luv Storys (2010) and Aisha (2010) happened. I can’t explain how difficult it was to make Aisha. Do you know how much effort it took to make Khoobsurat? No hero wanted to work with me because it was called Khoobsurat. I had to get Fawad Khan from Pakistan. And look what happened. Fawad became a huge star. He had the confidence.”
Sonam and Anand, you two were meant to be together. Wishing you both all the happiness in the world!
