Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s wedding was one of the most anticipated events of this year but when the news broke that Sonam changed her name after marriage to 'Sonam Kapoor Ahuja', the audience got mad. On both Instagram and Twitter, Sonam changed her name to Sonam K Ahuja. This news became a national news and debate about feminism started!
Amongst all the buzz, there was no news about the other half of the couple! Anand Ahuja, Sonam’s husband changed his surname too but no one really carried the news around. Anand Ahuja is now Anand S Ahuja.
In an interview, the actress shared the insight "I have always said that I am a feminist. I have the choice to change my name to what I want to. Kapoor is also my father's name. So it is a man's name anyway. I chose to keep both."
She was furious with all the criticism whereas, it was entirely their decision and then she said "Anand has also changed his name but nobody wrote about that. I just decided to do it on social media because that's my platform to say that I have made a choice. It is my personal choice. Nobody put a gun to my head. You should ask him (Anand). He has also changed his name and decided to add something as well".
How cute is that! This shows that their marriage is all about equality and feminism runs strong in both of them.
