Sonam Kapoor Speaks up on Adopting Husband Anand Ahuja’s Surname

While netizens lapped up every shred of information about the big fat Sonam-Kapoor and Anand Ahuja wedding and the star-studded reception, her fans stood divided over her decision to take her husband’s surname. Many questioned her ‘feminism’. There were debates around whether adopting one’s husband’s surname makes one less of a feminist and if it is really an equal and informed choice.

Anand Ahuja recently changed his Instagram handle to include Sonam’s initial.

Anand ‘S’ Ahuja. 

The 32-year-old actor was quick to change her name on her social media handles after tying the knot. In fact her name changed to Sonam Kapoor Ahuja within hours of her wedding. In an exclusive interview to India Today Television at Cannes International Film Festival 2018, she spoke about how the name change is a matter of choice.
