Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor got married to longtime boyfriend Anand Ahuja at an intimate wedding ceremony on May 8, 2018. Their wedding was one grand affair that we would never like to forget.
Recently, the actress and her darling husband Anand Ahuja graced the cover of Vogue India magazine. But, what is more interesting is that the couple spilled all the beans about their love story while sharing these pics on social media.
Taking to social media, Sonam recalls her first date and wrote, “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.”

Anand has even revealed the details about their first conversation. The entrepreneur says, “The first time we met, we talked about our respective work. I was just struck by the fact that I could speak to her so openly about everything. We were chatting on Snapchat one night and she said, ‘Stop texting, just call me.’ And we spoke for two hours that night… Our friendship started over superficial things like vegan chocolates and sneakers but soon we were having deeper conversations.”
“Anand is so encouraging when it comes to my work that he didn’t blink when I told him I was flying to Cannes two days after the wedding or that I was getting into promotions straightaway. There was no argument, just acceptance—you gotta do what you gotta do.” #EverydayPhenomenal ? @anandahuja For @VogueIndia
“She gives me a lot of confidence. Sonam’s very black and white. She knows what’s wrong and what’s right and is not afraid to say it. I can see both sides of a story, but I often get stuck in the grey zone. I sometimes need to be able to say no, and Sonam gives me the confidence to do that, she supports me. She’s intuitive and patient, I second-guess.” – Anand Ahuja #EverydayPhenomenal ? @anandahuja For @VogueIndia Photographed by: @signe_vilstrup Creative direction by: @anaitashroffadajania Sonam styled by: @rheakapoor Anand styled by: @abhilashatd
Talking of the best things about her husband, Sonam says, “He’s non-judgemental—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.”
Meanwhile, The newly married couple is in London at the moment enjoying some time with family and friends. On the work front, Sonam would be next seen in ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha’ alongside her father Anil Kapoor and actress Juhi Chawla.
