Sonam's husband has changed his name to Anand S Ahuja, adding the actress' name to his, on his Instagram handle.
Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja have given serious bridal goals to their fans with their fairy-tale wedding. On that, hitting it back at haters, Sonam said, "I've always maintained that I'm a feminist. That choice should be mine", Sonam said.
Aside from her lovely outfits and the poise with which she carried them, Mahira also made news for her bonding with Sonam Kapoor. They also questioned her decision to take her husband's surname and questioned if it was in line with her feminist thought process. His family didn't ask me to (change my name). I think the idea of honeymoon is to take a holiday together so you get to know each other. "That choice should be mine".
Today, Anand also changed his name on his social media account. "Anand changed his name too, he chose to add something to his name, but nobody wrote about that".

But true to her character, Sonam remains unfazed by their comments and says that it is her personal choice. She said, "If you can give respect to your father, you can give that same respect to your husband". And it could be his father Sunil Ahuja's name as well and could be called a smart move by Ahuja or just a token of love and respect. It is the same thing. It's a cyclical thing which needs to break somewhere. "It is a complicated discussion, but at this point in time, this is my choice", she said. Your life doesn't change that much (after marriage). "I want to be a part of Anand's family and he is a part of my family as well", she says. In last two years, nobody noticed that I am always in London.
Sonam Kapoor is considered as a Fashion Icon in the film industry. Women in a powerful position are expected to be masculine or aggressive, otherwise, she is not given the kind of respect...
She further added that she is a feminist and it's purely her choice to change her name. That mindset is what we need to fight.
Sonam Kapoor has left for Cannes immediately after she celebrated her wedding with the family members.
