 The sisters joke about how they never liked their father, Anil Kapoor’s, earlier fashion sense.

Sonam Kapoor is the certified fashionista of B’wood, while her sister Rhea has been working behind the scenes as her stylist for a while now. So it was little wonder that the sisters jumped at the idea of making it big on the fashion scene with their brand, Rheson.

“Quality is key,” Sonam says, while adding, “The more we adhere to quality control, the more it will be liked by all. Moreover, we are trying to be desi in our designs.” The sisters have also been mindful of the pricing. Sonam says, “A low-priced line with the best  quality is our motto.” While the actress is all business, Rhea talks about their journey. “Launching our brand has been a marathon. It was actually pretty stressful!” The best part of this venture is that the two sisters have no rivalry between them. “We have different tastes and choices and are different people with diverse interests, but there is no sibling rivalry,” says Sonam.

 

“In fact, our mom has taught us to balance our love for each other, and also to be mindful of our positive and negative traits,” says Rhea while adding that she looks up to her sister and feels Sonam has had to take on a lot of hounding in the film industry. She says, “People would embarrass Sonam and say that she’s just ‘into fashion and not acting’, but she held her place in B’wood.” 

While the sisters have different tastes, both of them do feel that the film industry is patriarchal. They say, “On the Red Carpet, people never discuss what an actor wears. But actresses, always get noticed. The other instance of patriarchy is when a female-oriented story is narrated and everyone asks, ‘What’s the catch’?’ Some will go ahead and question why such a film is even being made. A film is a film! Why do people even compare?” 

But, the sisters never had to face any such issues at home thanks to their “supportive” parents. “When I entered B’wood, everyone within the industry told me that a girl’s maximum age on the screen is not more than 30-35 years. Dad, however, never let me feel that way. He would tell me, ‘Kitne purane khayalat ke log hai, you are passionate about acting and so you must go on’.”

When the topic veers towards their father, the duo brighten up and laugh about how they did not like their father, Anil Kapoor’s earlier fashion sense. 

Rhea says, “Dad’s way of dressing and fashion was not so good. We style him now, so obviously he looks the best!”
