Anand was oh so grateful for the post and responded to Sonam in the comments section under the photos. “Why don't I have any of these pictures!?!... You're the best, literally the best. Everyday w you is like a birthday. #EverydayPhenomenal Love you toooooo much,” he wrote.
In a recent interview with an Indian magazine Sonam Kapoor opened up on her first meeting with Anand Ahuja. She revealed that the first time she met him, her friends were trying to set her up with his best friend. "My friends were trying to set me up with Anand's best friend. That's how I met him. The first time I met Anand was while I was busy with the promotions of Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015). One evening my friends conned me into visiting a bar at the Taj. I went there quite irritated. When I reached there, I realised my friends had called these two-three boys whom I had no interest in meeting. I was like, 'I don't want to date anybody. I don't believe in marriage and all this nonsense'. I saw Anand and his friend. His friend was tall like me, liked reading like me and was a huge fan of Hindi movies. He was an educated and a nice guy," she told the magazine.
She went on to add that Anand and her were complete opposites. So much so that he had no idea that her father was Anil Kapoor. But somehow they clicked. "Anand was trying to get me to talk to his friend...like being the middle man. But we ended up talking more. Two weeks later, we were talking on the phone when I asked him, 'Do you still want me to talk to your friend?' He said, 'No, No! Not at all. Talk to me. I'm keeping you for myself,'" Sonam revealed.
Anand Ahuja has been a huge hit with the Kapoor clan and has been praised by all of Sonam’s family members for being the perfect guy for her. Anil Kapoor too took to his Instagram account and wished hi son-in-law a happy birthday. He too shared a series of pictures of Anand playing basketball and looking uber cool. "From the day that you came into our lives, you have made our hearts, home and lives happier @anandahuja! Thank you for giving @kapoor.sunita & me so many reasons to be thankful and proud of you every single day! Happy Birthday beta! We love you with all our hearts! (sic),” the Jhakaas actor wrote.
“I appreciate you posting these pics of me - must be the coolest I’ve looked. And coming from you, now looking even cooler. Thank you @anilskapoor - you, @kapoor.sunita , Pappa and @priya.ahuja27 are the best role models, confidants, friends and parents! I’m eternally grateful,” Anand commented in response to his father-in-law.
In an earlier interview, Anil Kapoor opened up about his son-in-law and said, "He’s not my son-in-law, he’s like my son... I’d say friend. We bond over health, fitness and loving our parents and family. He’s very work-oriented, so we talk about that. Of course, there are things that I learned from him, since he has travelled so much, has studied in one of the best universities. These things I’m taking from him. He’s young, and comes up with great, fresh ideas where health is concerned. He has got a lot of depth and is very spiritual. It’s a combination of so many things we relate and connect to."
Meanwhile, Sonam’s mother, Sunita Kapoor also took to her Instagram account and wished her son-in-law in an adorable way. “Happy birthday Anand. May you always be blessed with all that your heart desires and May your year be as amazing and as wonderful as you are. Love you ,” she wrote as the caption for her post. The post features a smiley Anand Ahuja standing against a wall adorned with a Banksy quote.
Anand replied with, "Hahah! Throwback pic! Love you!"
