Although she truly believes that she is a feminist in every sense and no one forced her to change her name after marriage, it is her choice only, “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. Nobody put a gun to my head. You should ask him (Anand). He has also changed his name and decided to add something as well.”
Well, we have only noticed that she changed her name, while Sonam told her husband aka Anand has also changed his name. While she said, “I am a true feminist. I believe in my choice. My husband or his family have not asked me to do anything. I have decided to do it myself. I never asked my husband to do it. He did it himself.”
“The whole idea of feminism is to have equal opportunities and the choice to do what you want to do. So, whether I want to or do not want to change my name is my personal choice”, she added.

The rumour of her shifting to London with him also cleared by Sonam,“I am already living half here and half there (London). In last two years, nobody noticed that I am always in London. I am there for five months and I am here in Mumbai for the rest. My life had not changed and what was happening for the last few years will continue to be the same.”
