Bollywood Star Sonam Kapoor-Ahuja Addresses Backlash After She Chose To Adopt Husband’s Surname



People are mad at Bollywood star Sonam Kapoor for choosing to adopt her husband’s surname.

“I have been engaged for a long time. It took me a long time to decide. It’s a choice, at the end of the day. Nobody put a gun to my head. And if people don’t understand the concept of feminism, they need to go online and look at the description. And how do you know Anand has not changed his name? I have always said that I am a feminist. I have the choice to change my name to what I want to. Kapoor is also my father’s name. So it is a man’s name anyway. I chose to keep both. Anand has also changed his name but nobody wrote about that. I just decided to do it on social media because that’s my platform to say that I have made a choice. It is my personal choice.”
