Name game

‘I’ve the choice to change my name,’ says Sonam Kapoor Ahuja whose spouse too has inserted her initial in his name
Name game
Forever yours: Sonam and Anand Ahuja
The true idea of feminism is having a choice and equal opportunity, says newlywed actress Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, who chose to add her husband Anand Ahuja's surname and was at the receiving end of comments and criticism.

Sonam, who dazzled on the red carpet of the 71st Cannes Film Festival, spoke to select media in a video chat from the gala, where she represented cosmetic brand L'Oreal Paris.

"I am a true feminist and I believe in choice. Nobody told me to change my name after marriage. I decided to do it by myself. The whole idea of feminism is to have equal opportunity and choice to do what I want to do. That choice should be mine," Sonam said.

"Kapoor is my family name, so is Ahuja. I am a part of that family too, so I chose to keep both the names. In fact, Anand has also changed his name and nobody noticed that! It is my personal choice," added the daughter of veteran actor Anil Kapoor. IANS
