Anand Ahuja adds ‘S’ for Sonam to his name


If Sonam Kapoor has changed her surname to Sonam Kapoor Ahuja immediately after marriage then Anand Ahuja also added ‘S’ to his middle name and now he is Anand S Ahuja.

Anand’s Instagram account is a proof of the fact.

Well-known author and feminist Taslima Nasreen, in a tweet, also took a sly dig at Sonam, saying "they may wear modern dresses, utter modern dialogues on screen, (but) in real life most film industry people are not modern (and) believe in patriarchy and superstitions."

Commenting on the same, the actor said it was her personal choice and nobody put a gun to her head to do it.

"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. You should ask him (Anand). He has also changed his name and decided to add something as well," Sonam was quoted as saying.

The actor further said the whole idea of feminism is to have equal opportunities and the choice to do what you want to do.

"I want to be a part of Anand’s family and he is a part of my family as well. It’s a complicated discussion but this is my choice. Somebody judging me for my choice is not what feminism stands for," she added.
