“Thank you for all your blessings and love, as we celebrate this special moment in our lives,” the statement read.
Kapoor and Ahuja have been dating for a number of years, but it is only in the past few months that they have been open about their relationship and travels together on social media.
The lighting and decorations outside the Kapoor residence in Mumbai 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.”
Kapoor, after debuting in Bollywood with Saawariya in 2008, has featured in movies such as Delhi-6, Aisha, and Khoobsurat. Her performance in Neerja won her a Special Mention at the Indian National Film Awards.
Now, just weeks before her next film Veere Di Wedding releases in India on June 1 (May 31 in the UAE), she is busy preparing for her own wedding.
A week after her wedding day, Kapoor will walk the red carpet at the 71st Cannes Film Festival.
