Nana-to-be Anil Kapoor and wife Sunita Kapoor will soon host a baby shower for their actor-daughter
Sonam Ahuja and Anand Ahuja
In the last few months, Sonam K Ahuja and businessman-husband Anand Ahuja have been travelling, whether it was for a babymoon in Tuscany or a French vacation with sister Rhea and her husband Karan Boolani. The couple, who have also been sharing her maternity shoots, are back in the bay to welcome their first child. So, not surprisingly, the Kapoors are gearing up for another round of celebrations. Nana-to-be Anil Kapoor and wife Sunita Kapoor will soon host a baby shower for their actor-daughter. Friends of both the families will be joining in the revelry that will take place at Sonam’s aunt Kavita Singh’s bungalow, Rockdale in Bandra. Incidentally, it is the same venue where the parents-to-be tied the knot in May 2018 and began their marital journey. We hear the baby shower will have a bohemian theme and will be as extravagant as their wedding. Woohoo, that sounds fun!
In iconic company
About 26 years since Khamoshi: The Musical, Manisha Koirala teams up with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his web debut, ‘Heeramandi’. The actor recently shared a picture with the filmmaker and yesteryear screen icon, Mumtaz. “In the company of legends. I love being with such marvellous creative people. My face says it all,” wrote Manisha. Wonder if Mumtaz also features in SLB’s magnum opus.
