Actress Sonam Kapoor Ahuja thankful for husband Anand
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, who is having the time of her life in London with her husband Anand Ahuja, is thankful that she didn’t end up with someone from the film fraternity. Sonam and Anand tied the knot in Mumbai in 2018.
Speaking to a leading magazine, the actress said that she is fortunate to have met somebody who is like-minded and a feminist.
She said “thank god” she didn’t meet someone from Bollywood as their world-view can be very limited. They would only know about what’s happening in the film industry.
She said that this is the first time that she and her husband have spent every night together.
Since both of them travel a lot, they don’t get much time to spend with each other and that she and Anand have realised that they are obsessed with each other and have a lot of fun together.
She recently also opened up on the pay gap between a male and a female actor in the industry.
Calling it “ridiculous”, she said that she stood up to it and lost out on a lot of roles. According to her, she is privileged, so making difficult choices isn’t really difficult for her.
On the work front, Sonam will be next seen in “Blind”.
She will be seen essaying the role of a blind police officer who is out there to investigate a serial killer. The actress has shot the film in Scotland.
