Sonam Kapoor married her longtime boyfriend Anand Ahuja yesterday. The couple was in the relationship for four years before they decided to tie a knot. Sonam Kapoor looked elated and stunning, as she dons a lehenga by Anuradha Vakil while the groom Anand Ahuja kept it classy with a Raghavendra Rathore ensemble.
A lot of Bollywood celebrities attended the marriage reception to wish the newlyweds. Some prominent celebrities that graced the event were, Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Shahid Kapoor with wife Mira, Karan Johar, Rani Mukherjee, Karishma Kapoor, Kareena and Saif Ali Khan, Shahrukh Khan with wife Gauri Khan, Varun Dhawan with girlfriend Natasha Dalal, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Katrina Kaif, Salman Khan, Siddharth Malhotra, Rishi Kapoor with wife Neetu Singh, Akshay Kumar with wife Twinkle Khanna, Shilpa Shetty, Jacqueline Fernandez, Ranveer Singh, Kangana Ranaut, Jackie Shroff, among many many other celebrities.
Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan also attended the function as they arrived in color-coordinated outfits. While Abhishek Bachchan looked dapper in a white sherwani, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looked jaw-droppingly, gorgeous in a white embroidered ensemble. Here are some photographs of the couple from the wedding reception.
Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had differences in the past. Sonam once referred to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as Aunty Ji. After an uproar from fans and fraternity alike, Sonam never apologized and instead justified her comment by saying that “Aishwarya Rai has worked with my father, Anil Kapoor in many films as his leading actress, so calling her my aunty is justified.” This did not bode well with many people in the film industry and with fans of both actresses. Aishwarya Rai has always kept her comments to herself and never answered back. But at the same time, they have not seen speaking or meeting, even though they both represent the same cosmetic company, L’oreal as it’s brand ambassadors.
A source close to Sonam Kapoor’s family told a leading online media that “Last week, when Sunita Kapoor (mother of Sonam Kapoor) bumped into Aishwarya Rai at the wedding reception of Saudamini Mattu, (the niece of designer Sandeep Khosla), she made it a point to greet her warmly and personally invited her for her daughter’s wedding. After a couple of days, Sonam also called Aishwarya and invited her. They chatted for a few minutes after which Aishwarya Rai graciously accepted the invitation. While the younger Bachchan’s (Aishwarya, Shweta, and Abhishek) have been invited by Sonam too, the older ones have also been invited by both Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor. Weddings are special moments, it’s a time to have fun and forget the past and everybody is doing just that for Sonam’s wedding.” In the past, Abhishek Bachchan has worked with Sonam Kapoor in two Bollywood films, named Delhi 6 and Players. Both have had a good rapport ever since.
