Mumbai: Anil Kapoor may not be a style icon, but things have now changed and he is getting prominence at fashion events - all because of his stylish daughter, Sonam.
"They are calling me here today because of her (Sonam) otherwise no one used to call me for any fashion events. Thanks to her that I have been asked to come and laucnh this beautiful collection," the 52-year-old said here.
He unveiled designer sisters Barkha `n` Sonzal`s new offering The Yogi at Aza store in Juhu.
"I can be a fashion disaster and I am very proud of that. But now there is everyone to look after me. First, my wife used to look after me and now my daughters (Sonam and Rhea) look after me, which is great and I am really proud of them," Anil said.
While Sonam is an actress, Rhea is into production and fashion designing. Anil says he admires working women.
"I feel very happy when girls achieve and work. Ask any boy or husband, if his girlfriend or wife is working, then he respects her more because she goes out to work and handles the house as well. That is very, very beautiful and I genuinely look up to all these ladies," he said.
Anil was last seen in ‘Tezz’ and is currently shooting for ‘Shootout at Wadala’ and ‘Race 2’.
