“In cinema world, I was not treated as an equal but treated as a woman. But I realised it soon that women should not compromise. But art is reflection of the society. After marriage, my husband is my cheerleader and as a support he added my name in his middle name and has become Anand Sonam Ahuja,” Sonam said in a statement.

Sonam, who married Anand last year, attended the session along with ace tennis star Sania Mirza. Soon after her wedding, Sonam changed her name on social media platforms to Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and received a lot of flak online for doing so. However, few noted that even Anand changed his name to Anand S Ahuja - S signifying Sonam.

On the film front, Sonam will be next seen film The Zoya Factor opposite Dulquer Salmaan. She last worked with sister Rhea Kapoor on her production that brought Sonam together with Kareena Kapoor Khan and Swara Bhaskar - Veere Di Wedding.
