It seems as though Shaadi season is in full swing in Bollywood, especially post Sonam Kapoor’s marriage to Anand Ahuja. Yesterday, we were all (pleasantly) surprised by Neha Dhupia’s marriage with Angad Bedi, which took place privately. Now, we have another shocker… A good one of course!
The latest buzz is that composer Himesh Reshammiya will tie-the-knot with his special someone – Sonia Kapoor – TODAY in private ceremony at his residence, which will only be attended by close family and friends.
According to an Indian daily, their Mehendi ceremony reportedly took place two days ago and the wedding happened at Himesh’s apartment in the presence of their close friends and acquaintances.
A few months ago, there were reports that Reshammiya was in a live-in relationship with Sonia Kapoor even before his divorce with his now ex-wife Komal. The musician’s extra-marital affair with Sonia Kapoor was cited as the reason behind their separation.
They ended their 22 years of marriage and were granted divorce by Bombay High Court in June after Himesh and Komal amicably announced their separation in earlier 2017.
It was reported that Himesh’s son Swayam was very close to Sonia and he also visits them regularly. The reports suggested that Sonia used to accompany Himesh on the sets of all the reality shows, during his live shows and appearances and was with him even during his recordings.
Earlier, it was reported that Sonia used to frequently visit Himesh’s house but Komal, who was initially unhappy with her presence, later made peace with it.
It was reported that Himesh was taking care of Sonia’s expenses and used take her to long drives, dinner dates and holidays. Himesh later refuted these reports and said their respective families were very close to each other and had no objection to her visiting his house.
Last year, Himesh was asked whether he was going to get married for the second time, he snapped and said no.
In June 2017, Himesh parted ways with his wife of 22 years, Komal. At the time of separation, Himesh’s closeness with Sonia was said to be the reason of his divorce but later Komal, in a statement, refuted all the rumours.
She said, “Himesh and I completely respect each other and are jointly going with this decision to part ways legally but mutual respect will always be there for us as I am a part of his family and will always be, and the same is with him towards my family.
There are compatibility issues in our marriage but we respect each other immensely. Nobody else should be dragged into this matter and nobody else is responsible for this and the reason for our marriage not working is only and the only compatibility. Sonia is not responsible for this at all and our son Swaym and our family loves Sonia just like a family member.”
Well, heartiest congratulations to Himesh and Sonia!
