Actor Sonam Kapoor and her husband Anand Ahuja were in the capital recently for the launch of a shoe brand. The couple looked good posing for the cameras but one of their pictures has just gone viral on social media. The adorable photo has Anand tying the laces of Sonam’s shoes. The man can be seen bending down on his knees to fix the shoes as Sonam blushes magically in the photo. The pictures have gone viral on social media with fans praising Anand for showing so much love and respect for his wife. Here are the photos:
Anand’s gesture is sure lovely but it has also offended a few on social media who think that a ‘husband’ is not supposed to touch the feet of his wife. A social media post with the same picture has received many comments in which people have bashed Anand for not being ‘man’ enough by bending down in front of a woman. Check out these comments:

As much love as this picture radiates, it’s important to realise how social media seems divided in its opinion on Anand’s gesture. Marriage or any relationship demands equal contribution from both the partners. So, when a woman is expected to touch the feet of her husband as a sign of respect, why is there an uproar when a man shows the same kind of respect and love for his wife by bending down to fix her shoes?
Meanwhile, it’s going to be a year to Sonam and Anan’s marriage. The duo got married in May last year. They make a happy couple and are often spotted walking hand-in-hand at airports while travelling in and out of the city. The two always smile for the cameras and never shy away from expressing their feelings for each other.
