The newly-weds Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja sported casual a look and seemed to be in a jovial mood. The couple even posed for pictures. After her elaborate wedding functions last week, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja flew down to Cannes to honour her professional commitments. In her first interview post marriage to Anand Ahuja, the actor told mid-day that she hopes to set an example with this move
"Kajol and Dimple Kapadia worked post marriage. Madhuri [Dixit Nene] did Devdas (2002). Many actresses worked post marriage, but I am not sure that change is as evident yet. I hope to have set an example by coming straight out of my wedding to work. Women should always have the choice to work or not. I am so happy to be here, with L'Oreal, representing what Indian women stand for — we work and we stand up for what we believe in," said Sonam Kapoor
Though a firm believer in the institution of marriage, the feisty actor said she doesn't understand why one's professional life should take a backseat for it. "Life remains the same after tying the knot. Women need to stop thinking that marriage is life-altering. If it doesn't change a man's life, why should it change anything for a woman?"
Anand Ahuja and Sonam Kapoor have been dating since the last two years. They were introduced to each other by Sonam's friend, fellow actress and fashion designer Pernia Qureshi. Anand Ahuja owns a bungalow in the posh locality of South Delhi. The bungalow is situated in the area popularly referred to as the Lutyens Bungalow Zone (LBZ). According to news reports, Anand's grandfather bought a bungalow on Prithviraj Road in 2015
A regular at the Cannes red carpet over the past few years, Sonam Kapoor wowed fashion critics when she stepped out in a Ralph & Russo ensemble, complete with the hennaed hands of a new bride. When asked what her husband had to say, she gushed, "Anand loved what I wore. I have always worn things that I want to wear. I never spare a thought about what others think of it. It's the attitude you carry it with that matters."
Her's decision to change her name on social media to Sonam Kapoor Ahuja had her fans divided. "Just changing my name doesn't make me any less of a feminist. Kapoor is also my father's name, a man's name. I wanted to keep both my identities. It was my personal choice. Somebody judging me for my choice is like challenging what feminism stands for," laughed Kapoor, amused at the various interpretations that the term has acquired.

There have been rumours of Sonam Kapoor shifting base to London to which she replied in the interview with mid-day, "I have been shuttling between Mumbai and London for the past two years. It seems no one noticed this so far. My life isn't going to change much; what has been happening for the past two years will continue."
