Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Anand Ahuja, a couple after our own hearts no? When they are not being cute in hipster Bhane clothes, they are sharing throwback pictures of each other on Instagram.
While their love story is pretty romantic and all, what many don’t know that Sonam’s mister, Anand,was desperately trying to set her up with one of his best friends. Yeah, and that daddy dearest Anil Kapoor despised most of Sonam’s boyfriends but somehow loved Anand from the very beginning.
From revealing the man who made her wait on her wedding to calling Anand’s whole proposal story pretty archaic, Sonam did give us plenty of legendary mic drop moments on Anaita’s web series, Feet Up With Stars.

To the love of my life and the kindest gentlest soul I know, a very very happy birthday! You make my world better and I’m so blessed you were born today. “We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another.” Luciano De Crescenzo #everydayphenomenal #30072018 #alwaysandforever @anandahuja
Sonam talked about the date that was just not meant to be.
“He tried to set me up with one of his best friends. Everybody wanted me to be with this who I do not want to name. They said that he was cute and nice. He is still available and amazing. But I didn’t get that vibe from him. My friends conned me during the promotions of Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. They called me on a dinner and didn’t know that he was going to be there. Anand was with him and I ended up speaking to Anand the whole evening. That was the first time I saw him and had a conversation with him. Then we fell in love over the phone.”
She also spoke about the day he proposed.
“It was supposed to happen sometime in October but a few months before that we were in New York and this one day I was being a brat because I was having a crappy day. I was complaining about how there was no good person in New York when he was biking and I was walking alongside. He just got off and got on one knee and asked if I wanted to marry him.”
