'Sunita and Anil Kapoor, Sonam's parents, thought about shifting the wedding to next year due to Sridevi's sudden demise.'
'But Boney Kapoor assured Anil it was okay to go ahead with the wedding.'
Subhash K Jha reports.
Sonam Kapoor will marry boyfriend Anand Ahuja at the month-end.
The wedding will take place on April 29 and 30, and not May 11 and 12, as reported by a section of the media.
The Kapoor and Ahuja families will get together to bless the couple.
"It was never Switzerland or any destination wedding (as reported by the media)," says a close family friend.
"It was decided that the wedding would be in Mumbai and very low-key as Sonam's aunt Sridevi passed away. Only a close family and friends are invited. They have been told not to speak about the wedding to the media," the family friend adds.
Sunita and Anil Kapoor, Sonam's parents, were in two minds about the wedding date.
"They thought about shifting the wedding to next year due to Sridevi's sudden demise. But Boney Kapoor assured Anil it was okay to go ahead with the wedding. Anil relented when Boney promised to attend the wedding," the source says.
Sonam has been dating Delhi businessman Anand Ahuja for two years.
"He is already a part of the family," says the family friend.
"The wedding is the logical step ahead."
