Sonam Kapoor credited her mother, Sunita Kapoor, for inspiring her love for fashion, which has led her to become the style icon she is today.
According to Pinkvilla, the Khoobsurat revealed in a recent interview, saying, "You know, being born in the film industry, you are so used to seeing beautiful people in and out of your house, and I feel films have such a big hand in dictating trends, especially in a country like India."
"I feel that was one of the reasons that I got so much into film and fashion, she continued.
While revealing that her mom is a role model for her, the Prem Ratan Dhan Payo star noted, "My mom - she was a model, and then she became a very successful fashion designer, and now she is a jewellery designer."
"I grew up around Abu Jani, Sandeep Khosla, Tarun Tahiliani, Anamika Khanna, Anuradha Wakil, and all these amazing fashion designers, and they taught me a lot about textiles, international fashion, embroidery, and cuts. Especially my mother, she was collecting old Zari pieces, Jamawar and old Zari Sarees!," Sonam added.
In addition to this, the Raanjhanaa actress also revealed that her mom Sunita Kaapoor exposed her to the world of fashion.
She explained, "Those things were ingrained in me since I was a young girl. She also exposed me to the world of fashion, to a lot of international designers, not only French and Italian designers, but also to Japanese designers and other Asian designers as well, which gave me worldwide exposure."
The Ek Larki ko Deikha Tou Aisa laga actress added, "her passion was also in fashion; being a designer, she was also a retailer, so understanding that came from my mother."
