Bollywood actress and fashionista Sonam Kapoor's sangeet ceremony began late Monday evening. Family and friends dressed in gorgeus white (the dress code) flocked to the actor’s pad in the luxury Sunteck Signature Island at Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai. 

Sonam Kapoor will marry Delhi-based businessman Anand Ahuja on May 8, the family confirmed last week following weeks of speculation around the wedding.

Here is the first look of the bride-to-be from her sangeet:

"The Kapoor and Ahuja families take great joy and pride in announcing the marriage of Sonam and Anand. The wedding will take place on May 8 in Mumbai," read the statement from the Kapoor and Ahuja families.

The families have said it is an "intimate affair" and have requested the media "to respect the family's need for privacy". "Thank you for all your blessings and love, as we celebrate this special moment in our lives," the statement read.

Sonam and Anand have been dating for some years, but it is only since a few months that they have been open about their moments and travel diaries together on social media.


The actor and her close friends and family yesterday kick-started the celebrations with an intimate mehendi ceremony at her Juhu residence.

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."

Sonam, after debuting in Bollywood with "Saawariya" in 2008, has featured in movies like "Delhi-6", "Aisha", "Raanjhanaa", "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag", "Khoobsurat", "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", "Neerja" and "Pad Man". Her performance in "Neerja" won her a Special Mention at the National Film Awards.

Now just days before her next film "Veere Di Wedding" releases on June 1, she is busy preparing for her own wedding.

A week after her D-day, Sonam will be seen at the 71st Cannes Film Festival red carpet to fulfil her commitment as a L'oreal Paris ambassdor.
