Sonam ki shaadi is the next best thing to happen to the internet after Virushka and Taimur. The Indian internet is having a collective orgasm looking at the pictures of drop-dead gorgeous celebrities dancing in their designer dresses and washboard abs. The most fashionable diva of Bollywood is getting married. All eyes are on the A-list stars and, of course, the much-in-love couple. Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja have become husband and wife. The couple got married on 8th May 2018 in Mumbai at Sonam’s aunt Kavita Singh’s heritage bungalow called Rockdale in Bandra. The ceremony took place according to Sikh traditions.
While Jacqueline Fernandez and Varun Dhawan dance away their blues, Swara Bhaskar looks stunning in Indian wear. Karan Johar poses with a half-smile which he claims is the new pout. Our Insta feeds are full of Sonam, Swara Bhasker, Anil Kapoor, Karan Johar,Arjun Kapoor, Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor, and anybody who is somebody in Bollywood or its extended family.
Amidst all this, you spot a shy Anand Ahuja manoeuvring through Bollywood celebrities who are cheering him on, for he is the star of the show today. Anand is an affluent businessman, the owner of a successful fashion label, but unlike the Kapoors, he is not used to living his life in the limelight. Being a second-generation Bollywood family, the Kapoors are well settled in their celebrity status now. And Sonam, of them all, takes to the camera like fish to water (even if there is some struggle, it doesn’t show) – she is chirpy, she is goofy, she is living her Punjabi wedding.
Just like the star-studded mehendi ceremony which happened at Sonam’s pad in Bandra on Monday, the wedding of the Khoobsurat actor saw the who’s who of Bollywood in attendance. After the couple takes the wedding vows, the Kapoor and the Ahuja family have planned for a grand reception in the evening at The Leela Hotel, Mumbai. Here the guests will be seen in western formal dresses.
Last evening, at her mehendi ceremony, we saw Sonam Kapoor dressed in a beautiful white lehenga by designer Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla. Anand Ahuja chose to wear an off-white bandhgala suit. Sonam’s father Anil Kapoor could not control his excitement and was seen showing off bhangra skills at his daughter’s mehendi ceremony. Joining him were the young Kapoors and filmmaker Karan Johar, actors Jacqueline Fernandez, Varun Dhawan and Shilpa Shetty.

The newly-weds set the tone for the evening with their modern-meets-traditional look that saw Sonam in a chevron pattern lehenga paired with a grey choli and metallic dupatta, from Anamika Khanna and Anand dressed in a sharp sherwani.
From Bollywood veterans to next-gen actors, a plethora of film stars came under one roof to join Sonam and Anand on their happy day. B-town’s biggest stars from Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Karan Johar, Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Taimur, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Karisma Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Rani Mukerji, Kangana Ranaut, Rajkumar Hirani, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Katrina Kaif, Shahid Kapoor, the Ambanis, Kajol, Vidya Balan, Sidharth Malhotra, Shweta Bachchan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Suniel Shetty, Athiya Shetty among many others.
