After weeks of speculation, it was finally confirmed on Tuesday that Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor will marry her boyfriend Anand Ahuja on May 8 in Mumbai. Right after the wedding date was made official, Anand Ahuja shared a heartfelt note on his Instagram account, along with a quote by novelist Roald Dahl. He posted a picture of a quote by the renowned writer from his book ‘The Minpins’, which was published in 1991, a year after his demise. “Those who don't believe in magic will never find it,” read Anand Ahuja’s Instagram photo. He accompanied the picture with an inspiring message on peace and love.
Anand Ahuja wrote, “#ibelieve #RoaldDahl #trendthis ✨ ... One idea that has always amazed me is, “if we can all make one, just ONE person happy, the whole world would be happy.” How true and simple is that. The answer to world peace is simply loving those around you.”

Here’s how fans wished Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja ahead of their wedding:
On Tuesday, a joint statement by the families of the bride and the groom officially confirmed the wedding. Here’s the statement by Sonam and Anand’s families:
“The Kapoor & Ahuja families, take great joy and pride, in announcing the marriage of Sonam & Anand. The wedding will take place on the 8th of May in Mumbai . Since it is an intimate affair, we request you to respect the family's need for privacy. Thank you for all your blessings and love, as we celebrate this special moment in our lives.”
According to sources, the wedding may take place in 'Basera' which is in Bandstand.
Wedding preparations are on in full swing at the Kapoor household as their bungalow in Mumbai was decorated with lighting and the wedding fervour was evident.
32-year-old Sonam Kapoor has been dating the Delhi-based fashion entrepreneur for the past few years. They have been spotted together on several occasions - from parties and events to family outings and vacations; but they always remained tight-lipped about their relationship status. The couple’s social media PDA, however, was a giveaway to fans about romance brewing between the two.
Here are some Instagram photos of the soon-to-be-married couple:
Anand Ahuja also accompanied Sonam Kapoor to the National Film Awards in 2017, where she had received a special mention for her performance in ‘Neerja’.
