A statement on behalf of the Kapoor and Ahuja families was issued on Tuesday.

“The Kapoor and Ahuja families take great joy and pride in announcing the marriage of Sonam and Anand. The wedding will take place on May 8 in Mumbai,” read the statement.

The families have said it is an “intimate affair” and have requested the media “to respect the family’s need for privacy”.

“Thank you for all your blessings and love, as we celebrate this special moment in our lives,” the statement read.

Sonam and Anand have been dating for some years, but it is only since a few months that they have been open about their moments and travel diaries together on social media.

The lighting and decorations outside the Kapoor residence here added fuel to the speculation about the wedding.

Veteran actor Anil Kapoor, Sonam’s father, reportedly commented at an event last week: “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.”

Sonam, after debuting in Bollywood with “Saawariya” in 2008, has featured in movies like “Delhi-6”, “Aisha”, “Raanjhanaa”, “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag”, “Khoobsurat”, “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo”, “Neerja” and “Pad Man”. Her performance in “Neerja” won her a Special Mention at the National Film Awards.
