In an event, Anil Kapoor was quoted as saying, " Media has always been with me and my family when we began our careers. We will share everything at the right time. You all will know very soon. We won't hide these details. You will know why there is lighting outside the house."
While the lovebirds Sonam-Anand have always refrained from speaking about their relationship in public, they never fail to entertain with some lovey-dovey PDA on social media.
Sonam and Anand have been dating for quite some time they both are seen in many family functions. During Sridevi's funeral, we have seen Anand taking part in many rituals.
