Sonam Kapoor’s newly-wedded husband Anand Ahuja accompanied his gorgeous wife to the Cannes Film Festival as she zipped for a two-day visit to the French Rivera immediately after her big fat, much-talked-about wedding.
According to a source, Sonam had to depart for Cannes so soon after the wedding because of a prior commitment. “The Cannes was a commitment made well in advance. And she couldn’t wriggle out of it. The only solution was for Anand to accompany her for an impromptu honeymoon,” says the source. Though a final decision on this flash-honeymoon was taken only after the wedding, it is learnt that Anand has given his consent to accompanying his wife to Cannes from where the newly-married couple may head to another part of France for a brief vacation.
In any case, we might as well be prepared to see Anand accompany his wife to a lot of her work engagements. The family friend puts it aptly. “She won’t leave her career. He won’t leave her to go alone anywhere. As simple as that.”
Anand is a textile heir and runs a huge business himself. Earlier, there wer e rumours that Sonam will shift base to London where Anand stays and continue to work from there. On the films front, Sonam has Veere di Wedding, her home production, that will release at the end of the month followed by a role in Sanju, the much-awaited biopic of Sanjay Dutt, starring Ranbir Kapoor.
