Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Anand S Ahuja became each other's forever last year on May 08, 2018, and yesterday they celebrated their first wedding anniversary. Who would have thought that a story which started on social media would one day turn into a bond of seven lives? For quite some time, Sonam and Anand used to chat only on social media, and then they first met in London after her Prince Charming asked her out, and the rest became history.

Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Anand S Ahuja make for one of the most adorable couples in the Tinseltown, and they are an epitome of best couple in a long-distance marriage! When a girl gets married in India, her whole life changes as she is supposed to leave her parents' house and embrace a new family of her in-laws. Many a times, we have heard that this bahu and in-laws dynamic doesn't work amicably. However, nothing of that sort happened with Sonam. Sonam shares a friendly bond with Anand's parents.
Sonam and Anand wished each other a very happy first wedding anniversary yesterday with adorable posts on their Instagram handles. These two also shared many Instagram stories celebrating their first wedding anniversary. And one of Sonam's stories which caught our attention was how her in-laws celebrated their son and their bahu's first wedding anniversary. Sharing the following picture from the celebration, Sonam wrote, "How the ahujas celebrate!" atop it:
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and her in-laws aren't any typical family. Sonam shares a very cordial relation with her mother-in-law. She had once told Deccan Chronicle, “They are Sindhis and are a very private business family. They are lovely people but I don’t want to discuss much. I am obsessed with my mother-in-law; I get along very well with her. As they are not from the film industry so let’s not talk much about them. I have been dating Anand for so long. I like saying that he is my husband but I am so used to calling him, my boyfriend. It’s fun being married.”
It must be mentioned here that Sonam Kapoor Ahuja wore an outfit gifted to her by Priya Ahuja (her mother-in-law) at Isha Ambani's engagement in Italy last year. Take a look:
Coming back to Sonam and Anand's first wedding anniversary, Anand had shared two posts to wish his wifey a very happy wedding anniversary. In his first post, Anand had shared the following pictures and had adorably captioned them as, "Some of my favourite #shoefies w my (scroll 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." (Must Read: Arjun Kapoor Talks About Half-Siblings, Janhvi Kapoor And Khushi Kapoor, Says 'Nazar Naa Lagey')
In another post with a picture with his doting wifey, Anand had worded it as, "For a long time, this was my favourite pic of us. it was 3 months of being together and now it’s been 3 years! You were my “girlfriend” then and when we got married last year, you ALSO became my wife. Today we celebrate not only 1 year of marriage but 3 years of being “boyfriend-girlfriend". @sonamkapoor #WillYouBeMyGirlfriend #AlwaysBeMyGirlfriend #EverydayPhenomenal."
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja also took to her Instagram handle and had shared their wedding trailer by Reels And Frames. Calling Anand her 'sweetheart', Sonam beautifully captioning the video 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. @reelsandframes (a special thanks to my darling youngun @lisamishramusic for giving a voice to my fairytale it was the most beautiful surprise and heartfelt gratitude to Anand rathi for making this sweet video for me!).”
Sonam and Anand have now completed a year of togetherness. So, during an interaction with the IANS lately, Indian's most popular fashionista was asked if life has changed post-marriage. The 33-year-old actress was quoted as saying, "After my wedding, I have put on weight, my skin goes bad, I have really bad dark circles and I want all the girls to know that it's okay." She further added, "In India, there is so much pressure on girls... Whether it's about who you're getting married to, what is his education, why is your skin looking like that, 'don't go to sunny places you will become dark', 'why have you cut your hair', don't go out so much, don't go out drinking.”
Along the similar lines, she had earlier stated to an online tabloid, “It’s the same thing. Life doesn’t change much after marriage. It doesn’t change for a man. So, why should it be different for a woman where work is concerned?”
Earlier, in an interview with Vogue, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja had revealed the details of her first date with Anand S Ahuja. The Neerja actress had shared, “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." (Don't Miss: Vicky Kaushal And Katrina Kaif Have Finally Started Dating? Neha Dhupia Makes The Big Revelation)
