Anil Kapoor, versatile actor and father of Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor, says his daughter is the complete antithesis of the soft character she played in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya.

“Sonam is very spunky and sporty unlike the role she played in her debut movie. She also has a fantastic dress sense,” a proud Anil beamed after watching Sonam walk the ramp with aplomb for designer Anamika Khanna at the HDIL India Couture Week here. “I was excited to see her walk down the ramp. It was her first time and it was a completely new experience for me,” Kapoor said.

After his daughter set the runway on fire, Kapoor said, “I am amazed, she was looking so gorgeous and the best thing was that she was so comfortable on the ramp.” Asked about his personal style statement Kapoor replied, “I do not follow any trends, but my wife and my daughters are so fashion conscious that they make sure I dress up appropriately for the occasion. I believe in comfort.” he said smilingly. — HNS
