Sonam Kapoor got married to Delhi-based businessman Anand Ahuja on May 8. The wedding was one of the grandest Bollywood celebrations that we've seen so far.

But there's one thing that had people scratching their heads - why did Anand wear a pair of silver trainers with his classic black bandhgala at the couple's Mumbai reception party?


We do know that Anand Ahuja loves three things - Sonam, basketball and sneakers. He owns the brand VegNonVeg, which is India's first multi-brand sneaker boutique.

But we have the answer to the question that left people perplexed since May 8.

Sonam said, "He wore sneakers to make fun of me. He didn't want to wear formal shoes all evening."

Sonam continued, "My brother, Harsh [actor Harshvardhan Kapoor], told us to take some pictures with the press, and we had created an entire red carpet. I have always been part of the media all my life and wanted them to be a part of the festivities too."

Sonam said, "When he came out, Anand didn't realise that he was wearing sneakers, because he isn't from the industry. But it was fun."

Now that the mystery is finally solved, will the sneakers-bandhgala combo rule Indian weddings this year?
