Sonam Kapoor weds Anand Ahuja: Actress adds name to list of most expensive wedding dresses in Bollywood
Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja were married today in a grand ceremony in Mumbai.
B-Town weddings are glamorous and glittery, especially divas who never shy away from flaunting their beautiful attire on the big day. Today, Bollywood’s famous people are busy as Anil Kapoor’s daughter Sonam Kapoor has tied the knot with businessman Anand Ahuja. The couple’s marriage took place on Tuesday in the presence of family and friends. Right from director Karan Johar to actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Rani Mukherjee, Saif Ali Khan, Karishma Kapoor and many more are attending the wedding. The ceremony itself took place in Bandra near Bandstand at Kavita Singh’s heritage bungalow who is Sonam’s mother Sunita Kapoor’s sister. The bungalow is right next to Shah Rukh Khan’s mansion, Mannat in Mumbai.
The couple decided to get married after nearly four years of knowing each other. It has been revealed that Anand first met Sonam in July 2014 through a close friend. Anand proposed to Sonam within a month and the actress said yes.
Coming to Sonam, the actress is shining today as the bride in traditional red and gold lehenga by Anuradha Vakil. According to Vogue, Kapoor’s bridal lehenga was accessorised with stunning vintage style jewellery—a choker layered with a guttapusalu necklace and multi-stranded matha patti completed her look.
So, how much would it be worth? Considering that Bollywood actresses try to make some fine points in showing off their wedding dresses, at first look, the dress must have cost a packet!
