For actress Sonam Kapoor, charm and poise go hand-in-hand. Dressed in a festive-looking Manish Arora skirt, she spoke to us with her trademark candour.
When we asked her ‘who’ she was wearing, Sonam said cheerfully, “Oh this is a skirt from Manish Arora’s latest couture collection. He very kindly let me be the first one to wear it,” she said.
Speaking about her on-screen mother in ‘Khoobsurat’, Kirron Kher, Sonam said, “I know Kirron aunty like family. We all call her KK. In fact, we’re neighbours too,” she said.
Sonam also added that her father, actor Anil Kapoor is very close to Anupam Kher, Kirron Kher’s husband.
“My dad is always hanging out with Anupam uncle. Many times in the evening, he calls up my mom, and says that he’s going to have dinner over at his place. My mom calls Anupam uncle my dad’s ‘second wife’,” laughs Sonam.
Anil Kapoor and Anupam Kher have worked together since Anil’s first big hit, ‘Tezaab’. They have teamed up for many successful ventures such as, ‘Ram Lakhan’, ‘Lamhe’, ‘Beta’, ‘Deewana Mastana’ and ‘Hum Aapke Dil Mein Rehte Hain’. Anil also featured in Anupam’s directorial debut ‘Om Jai Jagdish’.
Sonam’s upcoming film ‘Khoobsurat’ by Disney is a remake of Rekha’s 1980 film by the same name. Along with Sonam and Fawad Khan, the film stars Ratna Pathak-Shah and Kirron Kher in key roles. The film will hit the theatres this Friday.
