Not only Sonam, Anand too changed his name post wedding

Not only Sonam, Anand too changed his name post wedding

Speaking to DNA on this, Sonam Kapoor revealed that it was her choice and her in-laws never forced her to do so.

Though the "S" may be perceived as his father's initial (Sunil Ahuja), Sonam's statement and the timing seem to denote otherwise.

Meanwhile, soon after her marriage, Kapoor flew off to French Riveria to dazzle on the red carpet of Cannes Film Festival. She retorted, "I am a true feminist". Nobody told me to change my name after marriage. I have chose to do it myself. I do what I believe in and after all that is the most important thing. "That choice should be mine", Sonam said. The Indian Express quoted her as saying, "I have always said that I am a feminist". I wanted to keep both my identities. "And how do you know Anand has not changed his name?"

"It's my personal choice, nobody put a gun to my head..."

Sonam married longtime beau Anand on May 8.

"If you can give respect to your father, you can give that same respect to your husband". It's a cyclical thing which needs to break somewhere. Your life doesn't change that much (after marriage). Actresses like Dimple Kapadia, Waheeda Rehman also worked after marriage. In fact, Madhuri (Dixit-Nene) did Devdas after tying the knot.

We applaud Sonam's thinking, her take on feminism and exercising her choices.

"I am already living half here and half there (London)". I am there for last two years, and nobody noticed. "What has been happening since the last two-three years will remain", she says. I go there for four-five months and then I'm back to Mumbai.

Sonam even makes simple pants and jacket look classy, by teaming it with trendy designer handbags.

So cool, Sonam Kapoor. Women in a powerful position are expected to be masculine or aggressive, otherwise, she is not given the kind of respect... They slammed her and labelled her as a fake feminist. And we, as women, need to come together and be stronger.

Sonam further said, "The whole world is getting polarised, I think it is very wrong to blame just India".

Sonam truly slayed it at Cannes 2018. Their wedding was solemnised as per the Anand Karaj tradition in presence of family and close friends. The Veere Di Wedding actress is no stranger to the high fashion drama that takes place annually on one of the world's biggest and most glamorous red carpet events.
