After months of speculation surrounding Sonam Kapoor’s upcoming wedding, sources have told a leading Indian tabloid that the wedding is likely to take place on May 11-12.
Sonam’s boyfriend Anand Ahuja is a Delhi-based businessman. Last week, after a brief holiday with him in London, where he owns property as well as a few business ventures, the bride-to-be took off to Austria for a five-day spa retreat at her favourite snowcapped resort.
According to reports, the date and venue for the wedding have been locked and mass bookings for flights are presently underway. Her dad Anil Kapoor is personally making phone calls to invite guests. There will be sangeet and mehendi ceremonies, followed by a traditional Hindu wedding,” a source from the team that is planning the wedding told the Mumbai Mirror, adding that the Kapoor clan took over three months to finalise the venue. While both Jaipur and Udaipur were among early contenders, the couple zeroed in on Geneva recently. “The nuptials will be preceded by an engagement ceremony attended by the family’s inner circle, but the venue for that is presently not known,” the source added.
According to fashion industry sources, Sonam has already entrusted family favourites Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla (who dressed her up for a recent wedding show) and close friends, Brit designer duo Tamara Ralph and Michael Russo, with their wedding wardrobe.
Sonam and Anand made their relationship public via Instagram on Anil Kapoor’s 60th birthday celebration in London in December 2016, with the extended Kapoor family welcoming Anand into the fold.
