This Kapoor girl was not swayed into setting the silver screen ablaze, her illustrious lineage notwithstanding. Riddhima Kapoor, 23, in fact, evinces scant interest in following in her parents’ – Rishi and Neetu’s – footsteps towards the marquee. Rather, a fashion degree from the American University, London, helped her develop her designing ways.
She initially toyed with the idea of opening an upmarket restaurant or a gymnasium "but the mushrooming of similar outlets all over Mumbai made me do a second think," she says. So fashion designing it is and she markets under the label, ‘Riddhima’. "Right now, I am focussing on the Dubai market with my kurtis," she says. A ‘frank extrovert’ and, at the same time, ‘extremely sensitive’, Riddhima does plan to eventually make a special lasting appearance on the Indian fashion scene. A debut that, one is sure, her parents are keenly awaiting.
