Dad Anil Kapoor finally reveals the TRUTH about daughter Sonam Kapoor's wedding

Anil Kapoor clarified and dished more details about the rumours concerning his daughter Sonam's wedding to alleged beau Anand Ahuja!

Like every other doting father, Anil Kapoor also wants his daughters to find the 'right man' in their lives. He also wishes them to lead a happy life.

But he's not a pushy father and thankfully for his daughters, he doesn't think marriage is necessarily 'settling down.'

However, it seems that all was changing and he was more openly talking about his younger daughter Sonam Kapoor's wedding to her rumour beau Anand Ahuja.

Anil is fond of Anand, but...

If reports are to be believed,  Sonam's father wants her to get married and settle down as he is extremely fond of Anand Ahuja and his family.

However, there is now a twist to this 'reported' piece!

The doting dad was recently caught by reporters and they got the chance to confirm the news of Sonam's wedding  to alleged beau Anand Ahuja. Surprisingly, Kapoor had a different take from what was reported earlier.

"We all want everybody to settle down. All these girls who are there like Anushka Sharma, Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor, they all started their career at the same time. Times have changed now. If you see all of them, they are coming into their own. I think that any of these girls or their parents will be happy with what makes them happy. Am I right or wrong?" he asked.

"When the time is right they will do it for sure"

He added that while earlier most girls would 'settle down' (read marry) by Sonam's age, now the scenario is different and girls don't want to get married so soon.

"Earlier it was a different thing, now it's their decision - When? How? With whom? What do they want to do? We all talk about these things, when the time is right they will do it for sure, all of them," he clarifies.

The bond we share is too personal for me

The 24 star also added that he couldn't speak much about Anand, because of Sonam.

"It is not my place to speak about Anand, that is entirely Sonam's prerogative and I have not known her to speak about her personal life," said Kapoor.
The actor added, "All I can say is that Anand and I are both private people and the bond we share is too personal for me to discuss with the media."

Well, it seems that while Sonam and Anand are comfortable to share their relationship on social media, they are not particularly keen on talking about it or any marriage plans in public.

But one thing is clear, Anand has become extremely close to Sonam's family and they have accepted him with open arms. And if you're wondering how to break the ice with your partner's parents, here are a few pointers.

3 ways to break the ice with partner's parents

  • Honesty: This trait goes a long way in not only breaking the ice, but also in further cementing the relationship. Your partner's parents (perhaps even in-laws) will be there for the rest of your life, so it's better to be who you actually are in front of them. Be honest with your ideas and thoughts and do not lead them on into believing that you're somebody else.
  • Appreciation: After all your partner's parents (in-laws) deserve equal respect and appreciation as your own parents. If they have done something for you, there is no harm in appreciating their effort and letting them know you acknowledge their good deed.
  • Adjustment: Let's not deny the fact that a marriage/relationship needs a lot of work and not only between two partners, but also between two families. So either way, both parties will have to adjust for the marriage to be a success. Therefore, it's a good idea to adjust and give in wherever needed.
