Ever since the news of Sonam Kapoor’s marriage to Anand Ahuja broke out, the media has been in a frenzy over details of the wedding and the guest list in particular.
The Kapoor and Ahuja families confirmed that the grand wedding reception will be taking place in Mumbai on May 8th in a joint statement:
‘The Kapoor and Ahuja families, take great joy and pride, in announcing the marriage of Sonam and 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.’
Following the confirmation, there has been much speculation over who all have been invited and who will be attending.
First reports came out that Deepika Padukone, who once shared the couch with Sonam Kapoor in the infamous episode of Koffee with Karan, where the two ladies spilled the beans on Ranbir Kapoor, will not be attending.
The two are believed to have been good friends, till Sonam said in a recent interview that they weren’t actually close. Previously Sonam had also made fun of Deepika’s style sense in another episode of Koffee with Karan, which have lead to reports of some kind of a cold war between the two.
It is also interesting to note that Deepika has been in a steady relationship with Ranveer Singh who is related to Sonam from her mom’s side and will even be performing at Sonam’s sangeet with best friend Arjun Kapoor.
So why would Deepika not be attending? Well, it seems like she has the perfect excuse – reportedly, she will be in New York on May 8th to walk the red carpet at the Met Gala.
Which happens to be exactly why Priyanka Chopra, who has reportedly been on good terms with Sonam, will also be giving the wedding a miss.
The last big Bollywood wedding happened in December when the Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli and A list actress Anushka Sharma got married. At that time, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh were both allegedly not invited to the Mumbai reception because of Anushka’s past with Ranveer.
Well, I guess we will only find out on May 8th as to who finally attends Sonam and Anand’s wedding.
