Sonam Kapoor paid no heed to these comments on social media but in turn waited for the right time to comment on this ongoing hot topic on internet. During a session at Cannes Film Festival, she had put these questions to rest. She said, “I have been engaged for a long time. It took me a long time to decide. It’s a choice, at the end of the day. And if people don’t understand the concept of feminism, they need to go online and look at the description. And how do you know Anand has not changed his name?”
Well, she has a point. How do these social media users know if Anand Ahuja has changed his surname or not?
