Most of us remember the happy occasion of Bollywood star Sonam Kapoor tying the nuptial knot with long-time boyfriend Anand Ahuja in a big fat dreamy wedding last year.
Many Bollywood superstars attended the event to bless the couple and fans and followers also got a sneak peak of the wedding album through Sonam and Anand’s social media handles, reported Pinkvilla.
The two were also recently spotted enjoying their honeymoon in Japan and shared many pictures from their exotic holiday.
Now, Sonam revealed details of the first time she met the love of her life in a recent interview that got many of her fans swooning, saying, “My friends were trying to set me up with Anand’s best friend. That’s how I met him. The first time I met Anand was while I was busy with the promotions of Prem Ratan Dhan Payo“.
The Veere Di Wedding actor continued to divulge all the juicy facts of how she met and fell in love with her now-husband. “One evening my friends conned me into visiting a bar at the Taj. I went there quite irritated. When I reached there, I realised my friends had called these two-three boys whom I had no interest in meeting. I was like, ‘I don’t want to date anybody. I don’t believe in marriage and all this nonsense,” Sonam reminisced.
The star then revealed that Anand and her had similar interests when they first met, such as their love for Hindi films. She went on to add that the guy reminded her too much of her brother, and that’s why she dropped the idea of dating him.
Sonam continued to share, “Sometimes, people believe that when they have similar interests, they can be together. No one would think of Anand and me together because Anand is totally different. He had no idea that Anil Kapoor was my father. I ended up speaking to Anand the whole evening. Anand was trying to get me to talk to his friend…like being the middle man. But we ended up talking more.”
This isn’t the end of the story. The Neerja actor went on to say, “Then one day I got a Facebook request from Anand saying, ‘Hey! Are you still single? Because so and so is still single and if you’re ever in London, please connect with him.’ That message came at 2:30 am. I messaged him saying that first you shouldn’t be messaging me so late in the night. I’m like a school teacher in matters like these. Don’t mess with me so late in the night. And if the friend is interested then he should message me himself. Why are you messaging me? That’s how the conversation started. We began talking on the phone. Then we met.”
Fast-forward a few weeks later, Sonam asked her now-husband if he still wants her to talk to his friend, in which he replied, “No, No! Not at all. Talk to me. I’m keeping you for myself.”
The rest, as they say, is history.
