When Sonam changed her name, tweets like "oh, so a feminist changed her last name. Why? Is it woman empowerment?" and "Sonam Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Sonam K Ahuja and Sonamakapoor. Poor girl. So confused what to call herself. Now to fit feminist standards" were posted.

Of changing her name, Sonam said it was her 'personal choice.' "I have always said that I am a feminist. I have the choice to change my name to what I want to. Kapoor is also my father's name. So it is a man's name anyway. I chose to keep both. Anand has also changed his name but nobody wrote about that. I just decided to do it on social media because that's my platform to say that I have made a choice. It is my personal choice. Nobody put a gun to my head. You should ask him (Anand). He has also changed his name and decided to add something as well," she told Indian Express.
Sonam Kapoor married businessman Anand Ahuja on May 8 in Mumbai. Soon after the wedding, she flew to the French Riviera for the Cannes Film Festival. Sonam returned to India last night, after making two blockbusters appearances on the Cannes red carpet.
Once home, Sonam Kapoor will now gear up for the promotions of Veere Di Wedding.
