Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoors daughter Riddhima Kapoor Sahni spoke about how the success of her brother Ranbir Kapoor and cousins, Kareena Kapoor and Karisma Kapoor, is because of their talent and not their family name.
In an interaction with ETimes, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni said that one gets a lot of eyeballs when they come from a known family. However, she added, that one has to build their own brand to succeed. She said, “Advantage kya hota hai (What’s advantage)? We have grown up with the name and have got used to it. Besides, you might get a lot of eyeballs due to your family name when you are starting a brand, but later the brand speaks for itself.”
She added, “If I were to become an actress, I’d be told that it was given since my family is into films. Ranbir, Karisma, Kareena are star kids but their work has spoken for itself; their success comes purely from their talent. They are superstars only because they are great at what they are doing.”
Speaking about herself and if her family name helped her build her own brand, she said, “Whether you do acting or fashion or anything else, even a star kid has to do something in life. People are going to talk irrespective of what you do, the best you can do is do your job and let it do the talking.”
