Meanwhile, here's a glimpse of Sonam's decked-up Mumbai home, as photographed on Tuesday:
Last week, those passing by Sonam's home could not have failed to notice the decked up Kapoor residence, decorated with festive lights - this led to another set of shaadi rumours concerning Sonam and Anand. Paparazzi also caught on camera celebrities like Farah Khan, Karan Johar and Masaba Gupta dropping by Anil Kapoor's home on Friday night. Farah Khan is reportedly in charge of choreographing Sonam's sangeet (Farah sort of revealed this on an episode of Entertainment Ki Raat) while Karan is reportedly organising the sangeet.
When Anil Kapoor was recently asked if the decked up exteriors of his Mumbai home are part of Sonam's wedding preparations, this is what he told the press: "Media has always been with me and my family when we began our careers. We will share everything at the right time. You all will know very soon. We won't hide these details. You will know why there is lighting outside the house." As promised, we now know.
Earlier at the launch of Veere Di Wedding trailer, Sonam dealt with the often-asked question about her wedding and said: "Today is about the film. You'll all know everything all in good time."
Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja (who owns the label Bhane) are frequently spotted together, both on social media and in real life. In February, Anand accompanied Sonam to her cousin Mohit Marwah's wedding in Dubai and later, was also photographed with Sonam and her family at Sridevi's funeral in Mumbai.
Apart from her wedding preparations, Sonam Kapoor is also busy with promotional duties of Veere Di Wedding, which releases on June 1. Sonam will also walk the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival on May 14 and May 15.
