Actress Sonam Kapoor tied the knot with the love of her life, Anand Ahuja, in a traditional Anand Karaj ceremony. Although the D-day was meant to be kept very low-key and discreet, Sonam’s other wedding functions, including mehendi, sangeet and reception, were a star-studded affair which saw the who’s who from Bollywood. However, not all fans were aware of the fact that Sonam’s best friend Swara Bhaskar almost did not make it to the wedding. Yes, you read that right.
During an interview with Radio City, Swara revealed that Sonam’s astrologer had earlier picked 12th March as the auspicious day for Anand and her wedding. Wait, there’s a twist in the story. She further said that it happened to be the same date when her own brother Ishaan was getting hitched to his girlfriend.
“Sonam entered (Veere Di Wedding set) looking very upset. I got an idea what it was about,” Swara recalled. “Sonam even asked me if I could convince my parents in order to get Ishan’s wedding date changed,” Swara added.
On the other hand, Swara was trying to convince Sonam’s parents Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor to postpone Sonam’s wedding to some other date. Eventually, things got worked out and Sonam’s wedding got delayed. The two actors are all set to share screen space for the third time in their upcoming film, Veere Di Wedding.
Sonam Kapoor’s Veere Di Wedding co-star and bestie Swara Bhasker wouldn’t have made it to Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s wedding if it wasn’t for Sonam’s great persuasive skills. During a recent radio interview, Swara revealed that Sonam Kapoor postponed her wedding so that she could be a part of the grand celebrations. Swara revealed that Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor (Sonam’s parents), after consulting an astrologer, had zeroed in on March 12 for Sonam’s wedding date. However, Swara’s brother Ishaan was also getting married on the same day. Swara said, “Sonam entered (Veere Di Wedding set) looking very upset. I got an idea what it was about. She even asked me if I could convince my parents in order to get Ishan’s wedding date changed.”
On the other hand, Swara tried convincing Sonam’s parents to postpone Sonam’s wedding to another date and the rest is history. Swara was a present throughout the three-day affair and the pictures shared by the actress are a proof of the strong bond that these two actresses share.
Sonam Kapoor and Swara Bhasker have co-starred in Raanjhanaa and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, featuring Salman Khan. The duo will soon be seen together in Shashanka Ghosh’s Veere Di Wedding, which also features Kareena Kapoor Khan and Shikha Talsania. The film will hit the screens on June 1.
Sonam Kapoor married her long-time boyfriend Anand Ahuja in a traditional Sikh ceremony on May 8. The wedding took place in the morning and was followed by a grand reception on the same day. Bollywood celebs including Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor and Swara Bhasker (of course) were in attendance.
