Sonam Kapoor, Rhea Kapoor defend Anamika Khanna; say her design isn’t copied but instead inspired by her sons
Bollywood actor Sonam Kapoor is known to be quite a fashionista, who does not fail to make a statement every time she steps out. Recently, the actor wasted no time in supporting her designer friend Anamika Khanna after she was accused by a social media page Diet Sabya, of copying creations by other international designers.
The reaction by Sonam comes after Diet Sabya posted a picture saying that Anamika’s recent creation for the actress for Isha Ambani’s wedding is too close to designer Anna Wintour’s. The lehenga in question is the one that Sonam wore with the print “Everything is AK-OK” on the front. Incidentally, Anna Wintour’s Concept Jordan’s launched in June 2018, also had the words AW-OK printed on them, which also happens to be a synonym for her name. Sonam supporting Anamika and criticising the page said that while she has been a huge fan of Diet Sabya, she is disappointed about the claim and said that the text on the outfit was inspired by the designer’s sons. Narrating the story, the actress said that Anamika has been quite sick and her son’s being with her through it all, always say, “It will be A-OK” and it also happens to be from there that AK-OK came to be.
Interestingly, it was not only Sonam but her sister Rhea who also came to the rescue and said that Anamika is quite a private person and does not like to be vulnerable in the public eye. However, she went on to add that to set the record straight, Anamika had worn the outfit herself to an awards ceremony where she was named the designer of the year, while she was accompanied by her sons, and Rhea was also present for the same. Rhea, went on to tell the administrator of the page that as a wannabe journalist, she should have checked facts before posting about it. The producer also went on to say that Anamika’s designs are inspired by street culture and her boys from hip-hop, as they help her in her business.
