She needs no intro. She is daughter of Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor, sister of Ranbir Kapoor. She is none other than Riddhima Kapoor Sahni. I can't believe that I finally managed to interview her. Thanks to Riddhima and her great team for cooperation. Without their support this interview couldn't have been possible.
She has launched her own Jewelry line under brand name "R" with her friend and business partner Mr. Anuj Kapoor of famous Punjab Jewelers from Mumbai. Her designs are beautiful and I am absolutely in love with them. I like the fact that she wants to create her own identity. She is married to Bharat Sahni and have a beautiful daughter of five years. Her brand is like her classy and elegant. I really enjoyed interviewing her.
Why Jewelry not anything else?
My brand 'R ''Jewelry by RKS defines me who I am as a person. I absolutely enjoy wearing and designing delicate yet stylish Jewelry which is the brand USP

My Mother and I used to be the face of a popular Jewelry brand for eight years and I enjoyed every bit of adorning their jewels. I learnt a lot about Jewelry in the years from the brand itself
Today my brand partner Mr Anuj Kapoor from Punjab Jewelers and me have launched R Jewelry together and hope to go all out with it
