We can finally hear the wedding bells ringing loud and clear for Sonam Kapoor & Anand Ahuja. Their families made an official announcement just yesterday and we couldn’t be more excited for the lovebirds. The Kapoor house in Juhu is already decked up and Farah Khan is busy choreographing the sangeet performances of Karan Johar, Janhvi Kapoor, and others. The entire family is in high spirits and excited to see the couple tie the knot but before that happens, here’s everything that you need to know about Sonam’s soon-to-be hubby.
Anand is the son of Sunil and Beena Ahuja and belongs to a very illustrious Delhi-based business family. He has two younger brothers called, Amit and Anant and has studied at the American Embassy School in Delhi and graduated with a degree in Economics and Business Relations from the UPenn (University Of Pennsylvania). He went on to pursue his MBA at Wharton but dropped out soon. He instead earned an internship at Deutsche Bank and worked with apparel moguls like Macy‘s and Amazon thereafter.
After working with international brands, he joined his family business and took up the position of Managing Director at Shahi Exports, perhaps one of the biggest export houses in the country. Anand is also a sneakerhead and decided to turn his love for sneakers into a revenue-generating business leading to the creation of India’s first multi-brand sneaker company, Veg Non Veg. The company’s current turnover is estimated to be over USD 450 million. WHAT?! He also owns the apparel brand, Bhane.
#NikeSingapore is hosting an event with @virgilabloh X @nikelab tomorrow for the #NikeTEN collection. They've called 25 people from Asia and I'm so grateful to be representing from ??! It's a 2 day trip and yet I've somehow managed to bring 5 pairs of shoes! Haha. Truth is that each one is easily one of my own personal top 10 favorites and even though I can only wear one tomorrow, im glad I have them all here with me. At least I won't have to decide which one to wear until right before the event itself. (Plus it almost feels like all 5 will be represented just because they have travelled with me… I know this will make sense to the true enthusiasts!). Im going to do my best to share as much as I can during the event for everyone that's messaged me sharing their excitement and love for what @nike has done recently and for everyone that just loves street and sneaker culture in general! Thanks again for having me and I know this will lead to an even larger selection of product for us to choose from in India! #gr8likewhoa #bhaneonnike #SirVeg #TeamPixel
Congratulations Anand on another incredible milestone for VegNonVeg! Can't wait to see what else you have in store ? @anandahuja @purevnv @gqindia @virgilabloh #Repost @anandahuja ・・・ "How can two brands collaborate on something neither would do … something that would push both of us to be uncomfortable.

Besides being an astute and successful businessman, Sonam’s prince charming loves basketball and is fond of BMX bikes.
There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved. I have never ever felt so so loved in my life. I'm so overfilled with joy and love that my cup runneth over. Thank you my amazing family and friends. I feel so so special and blessed to be me, I hope every girl gets to feel this way. #everydayphenomenal
