Wedding bells are ringing for another Bollywood diva, Sonam Kapoor. The fashionista from the Indian film industry will tie the knot with Delhi-based businessman Anand Ahuja on 8 May 2018. A statement declared the date was issued on 1 May on behalf of the Kapoor and Ahuja families.

Stating that wedding will be an “intimate affair”, the families have requested the media “to respect the family’s need for privacy”. “Thank you for all your blessings and love, as we celebrate this special moment in our lives,” the statement further read.

Just like the couple have been tight-lipped about the wedding, Sonam and Anand had kept their relationship under the wraps for a long time. They caught attention when both of them were spotted at actor Akshay Kumar’s party hosted for Hollywood actor Will Smith.

Anand Ahuja, much like Sonam, has a good taste in fashion. He owns Indian sneaker brand VegNonVeg and a clothing brand too named Bhane.

Both share similar interests like travelling, fashion, and minimal living.
