The much-hyped wedding of Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja is just around the corner. The venues have been decided, guests invited and decorations done. Anil Kapoor's bungalow in Juhu was recently decked up with fairy lights and lanterns and it's looking like the perfect shaadi wala ghar.
Earlier, the couple and their families were quite about the preparations and neither gave an official statement about the wedding. But, yesterday on 1 May, they issued a joint statement in regard to the much-awaited wedding. The statement read:
"The Kapoor and Ahuja families, take great joy and pride, in announcing the marriage of Sonam and Anand. The wedding will take place on the 8th of May in Mumbai. Since it is an intimate affair, we request you 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."
Well, we can only imagine how excited and happy all the friends and family members of Sonam and Anand are. The sangeet preparations have been going on for the longest time, and Karan Johar, Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor are expected to perform at the ceremony. The guest list is pretty glamorous too, but seems like one certain dimpled beauty of the industry will give the festivities a miss - Deepika Padukone. The reason behind her absence from the wedding is that she is the only Indian actor to make it to TIME 100 Most Influential list and she will not be in the country during the celebrations, as she is busy with prior work commitments.
Well, even though we'll not be able to see Deepika at #SonamDiWedding, her beau Ranveer Singh will be present there to fill in for both of them. The guest list also includes the Bachchan family, Shahid Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar among a host of other celebrities. The wedding will take place at Sonam's aunt's heritage mansion in Bandra.
The bride-to-be who is undoubtedly the most favourite fashion muse of Bollywood will be dressed in an Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla outfit for her big day, and we cannot wait to see her all decked up as a bride.
We know that we are not the only ones excited for the wedding. So, if you are looking forward to the biggest wedding of the year too, then stay tuned to this space for more.
