She will be soon showing her acting flair in the Sanjay Dutt biopic and R Balki’s Padman (which has Akshay Kumar and Radhika Apte too). She is a diabetic from her teenage days.

Boyfriends and Affairs:
|Marital Status||Married(m.May 8th, 2018)|
Before evolving as an actress, Sonam was going dating somebody. But there was a problem. She was heavy, which prompted her BF to throw some nasty comments about her weight. Which girl would digest these kinds of taunts? This irked Sonam and pushed her to break up with her boyfriend. Forever!
Ranbir Kapoor (Actor), Sahir Berry (Model and Entrepreneur), Punit Malhotra (Director), Anand Ahuja (Entrepreneur) are the men (past and present) in Sonam Kapoor’s life.
Sonam dated Ranbir Kapoor for a brief period. But it didn’t last long. After her split with him, she decided not to marry any person from the film industry (considering star couples never get the time to spend with their partner).
Sahir Berry was a businessman. Given his profession, he had to divide his time between Delhi, Goa and London. Quite naturally it became difficult for the love-birds to keep their long-distance relationship going.
Who is Punit Malhotra? The director of I Hate Luv Storys. As what happens to actresses, Sonam was tied up in shooting schedules and other commitments. This was the reason for the couple to drift apart.
Presently, Sonam Kapoor is to be dating Anand Ahuja, who are vacationing (and still) in the US and she got married to Anand Ahuja May 8th, 2018.
The to-be-couple (if newsfeed is true) are having a whale of a time with their holiday stopovers in Wharton School of Business, Philadelphia and the New York theme park Six Flags Great Adventure.
Anand put up a new selfie with Sonam and wrote the pic caption: “Chillin’ out maxin’, relaxin all cool”. These are lyrics from the theme song of the Will Smith sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
Such is the fondness for each other that Sonam babe celebrated Anand Ahuja’s B-day in New York last week. Sonam gifted Ahuja a bike. Not only did Anand share those pix on Instagram, he also thanked the actress for the surprise birthday gift. Looks like both are mad about each other. Let’s see when they will tie the knot.
The diva tied the knot with Anand Ahuja on May 8th, 2018. She chose to go traditional by opting for a red and gold lehenga by Anuradha Vakil.
