Actress Sonam Kapoor has been in the spotlight in the world of Bollywood for over 15 years.

While she’s celebrated for the many incredible films she’s starred in including Neerja and Sanju, there’s also just as much interest in her personal life.

This is exactly why fans were overjoyed when she announced she was expecting her first child with husband Anand Ahuja, a renowned fashion entrepreneur in India.

As the couple are now set to embark on the next chapter of life together, Emirates Woman decided to look back on their relationship together, from first meeting to tying the knot and more.

The duo dated for more than two years before they were officially married to each other. Sonam and Anand made their first public appearance together when renowned actor Akshay Kumar threw a special bash in honour of Will Smith at his home.

This was the first time her then-boyfriend caught the attention of the public, with a photo of the pair going viral on social media.

However, there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to revealing details about their relationship.

In a previous interview with Filmfare, Sonam said, “My friends were trying to set me up with Anand’s best friend. That’s how I met him.”

She later on revealed, “Sometimes, people believe that when they have similar interests, they can be together. No one would think of Anand and me together because Anand is totally different. He had no idea that Anil Kapoor was my father. I ended up speaking to Anand the whole evening.”

After speaking for hours and meeting quite often than expected, this eventually led to something more and made her fans even more intrigued. This is how their love story began.
