It’s been quite some time since Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja have tied the knot and their love story has been a simple yet exciting one.

Before the big fat Punjabi wedding, Sonam was not much vocal about the duo but soon after it, Sonam for the first time revealed about their relationship. In the interview, she said that her friends were trying to set her up with Anand’s best friend. That is how she met Anand for the first time while promoting her movie, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015). Her friends conned her into visiting a bar at the Taj, where she went quite irritated because she did not wish to date anyone then. The friend Anand came along with was much like Sonam herself in terms of shared interests like reading. But Sonam saw him like a brother rather than a boy she could date. To this Sonam also talked about the common belief that people share about having similar interests and being together. Anand and Sonam are two opposite poles and they do not share similar interests. At the time they met, Anand did not know that Sonam is a daughter of Bollywood legend Anil Kapoor. She ended up speaking to Anand while he was trying to get Sonam and his friend into the conversation but the duo talked more due to this.

After some time, Anand sent her a request on Facebook along with a message asking if she is still single because he wanted to inform about his friend who was interested in her. The message came around 2:30 AM and this infuriated Sonam. She replied to Anand telling him not to text at such a late hour and tell his friend that if he is interested, he should be the one contacting Sonam. This is how the conversation between the two started which lead to their meeting. Two weeks later they were both in good terms talking over calls and Sonam asked if he still wants her to talk to his friend to which Anand denied confessing that he likes her for himself.

The first time they met was in London. They roamed around for the whole day, talking and after exactly two years, the duo had a blast wedding in Mumbai.

Both belong to two different worlds. Sonam is a National Awardee for her roles in films like Aisha (2010) and Neerja (2016) alongside being a great fashion ambassador. Anand, on the other hand, is known for his brand Bhane. Sonam is fond of fiction and reading but Anand likes basketball, philosophy, and sneakers.

Their lovely wedding broke Instagram and pictures of their multi-event wedding surprised and amazed every single visitor.

Being the Runway bride, her wedding wardrobe astounded everyone from not only the industry but even from outside. She wore a wide range of designers like Abu Jani, Anamika Khanna, and Sandeep Khosla.

The beautiful love story has no match to it and the couple has never failed to set a benchmark with their outstanding matching style and utter coolness.

In a nutshell, Anand Ahuja has always been a big name but as some people believe that after his wedding with Sonam Kapoor, not only him but Sonam has also been on a great career ride. Anand has not only been an outstanding businessman but also a great husband. Their simplicity attracts many couples and support for each other has been phenomenal.
