Hrithik, Sonam bond over fashion
An increasing number of Bollywood stars have started dabbling in ventures other than acting, and the fashion industry seems to be a draw for many. While Hrithik Roshan launched his brand of casual clothing last year, Sonam Kapoor, along with her sister Rhea Kapoor, will soon announce the launch of her fashion label. In fact, recently, when Hrithik and Sonam met in Turkey to shoot for a song, they discussed the functioning of the fashion industry at length.
“Hrithik launched his brand last year, and hence, he understands the business of fashion. He also knows that Sonam is soon going to launch her own brand. So, when the two met on the sets, they got talking about the status of her label. When Sonam briefed him, Hrithik started giving her advice on how to market her label to attract the youth. They spoke about the retail industry, and exchanged notes on how to build a strong brand,” says an insider.
Interestingly, Sonam also showed Hrithik pictures of some of the collections from her brand. “She wanted to get his feedback. As for Hrithik, he was impressed with what he saw,” adds the source. While both the actors remained unavailable for comments, Sonam’s spokesperson confirmed the episode.
