Cannes 2018: Sonam Kapoor receives special surprise

The true idea of feminism is having a choice and equal opportunity, says newly Wednesday actress Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, who chose to add her husband Anand Ahuja's surname and was at the receiving end of comments and criticism.

However, what change Anand has made to his name is unclear as his social media profiles continue to say "Anand Ahuja".

However, in an interview, while at Cannes, Sonam said, "It's a choice, at the end of the day". She aced her red carpet look with a lehenga dress from Ralph and Russo and happily showing off her engagement ring and mehendi in her palms.

Sonam further said, "The whole world is getting polarised, I think it is very wrong to blame just India". I don't think about what people think of me and what they say.

Sonam Kapoor took no time to get back to work. The superstar is now in France, attending the 71st Cannes Film Festival as the first L'Oreal Hair Care spokesperson from Pakistan. There is no difference. Women need to stop thinking that way.

Mumbai: Sonam Kapoor is not called a fashionista for no reason. On the photo, Sonam tagged her husband Anand Ahuja and wrote: "this was for us". On this, the Neerja actor said that she is a feminist in every sense and that changing her name is her choice alone. I have a choice to change my name when I want to do it. The film is set to release on 1st June and also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhaskar, Shikha Talsania in the main lead. So it is a man's name anyway. "So, I chose to keep both", Sonam told DNA. "It's my personal choice, nobody put a gun to my head", she adds. "And how do you know Anand has not changed his name?"

Well, the fact that Anand Ahuja has changed his name can be concluded on the basis that he has added an "S" in his name as seen on his Instagram page. After that Anand also took to his Instagram and changed his name to Anand S Ahuja, presuming S stands for Sonam.

There has been a buzz that she is shifting to London with her husband. And with that comes the right for women to make their own choices and decisions without having to answer to anyone. My husband or his family has not asked me to do anything. I flaunt myself not because I like my clothes, yes of course I do but more because of my confidence. My husband or his family has not asked me to do anything.
