Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor and her Delhi-based businessman beau Anand Ahuja, who have been dating for four years, will tie the knot in a private ceremony in the presence of extended family and friends. The couple will reportedly get married over a two-day ceremony on May 7 and 8 in Mumbai. The preparations for the festivities have been going on for quite some time now as we have seen photos of the Kapoor residence all decked up with flowers and lights. From a colourful mehendi celebration to a dhamakedaar sangeet night, the duo has planned a perfect fairy tale big fat destination wedding. Talking about Sonam’s look for her wedding, a source close to the family, in a statement to Mumbai Mirror, said, “Sonam’s look for her wedding day has been finalised. It will be regal, teamed with heirloom jewellery.”
Sonam and Anand’s honeymoon will be delayed as the actress will be in the French Riviera on May 14, to walk the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival that opens on the same day as her wedding. Not just that, Sonam, who is gearing up for the release of her upcoming wedding drama ‘Veere Di Wedding’ that also stars Kareena Kapoor and Swara Bhaskar, will start the promotions of the Shashanka Ghosh’s directorial venture, immediately after the nuptials. The actress will also resume shooting for Shelly Dhar’s Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. The source further informed, “Anand won’t be at Cannes with her but the couple is planning an October-November honeymoon which will be delayed because of the bride-to-be’s choc-oblock schedule.” ALSO READ: Sonam Kapoor And Anand Ahuja Wedding: Anupam Kher Congratulates Bride-to-be In The Cutest Way Possible – Watch Video
