Did Sonam Kapoor postpone her wedding for bestie Swara Bhasker?
Sonam Kapoor married her longtime beau, Anand Ahuja, in an intimate wedding on May 8. While Sonam intended it to be a small wedding with only close friends around, the sangeet and reception were no less than a spectacle. Well, there is one friend who almost did not make it to the wedding – Swara Bhasker. The two actresses will be sharing screen space in the upcoming film, Veere Di Wedding. They are on a promotional spree for the same and in one of the interviews, they revealed a very interesting story behind Sonam’s wedding date.
So, while talking to Radio City, Swara and Sonam revealed that they faced a huge dilemma when it came to the latter’s wedding date. You see, an astrologer had picked March 12 as the auspicious day for Sonam and Anand, which also happened to be the very date when Swara’s brother Ishan was going to tie the knot with his girlfriend Bhoomika Joshi. “Sonam entered the sets looking very upset. I knew what was it about,” Swara said. She further added that Sonam asked her if they can postpone Ishan’s wedding.
In fact, Sonam was ready to go to lengths to get the initial wedding date. Swara revealed, “She has called up my parents, asking, ‘Aunty, can we postpone Ishan’s wedding?’ She even offered to talk to my sister-in-law’s parents, because they were her fan. And I was like I can see my brother’s wedding falling apart,” In return, Swara was trying her best to postpone Sonam’s wedding. Sonam said that her best-friend, Swara, came up with a plan and asked her to bribe her pundit to shift the wedding date and not tell her parents, Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor.
