I focus on things that matter, says Sonam

New Delhi,  Actress Sonam Kapoor says she keeps herself away from the buzz on her personal life in the media by focusing on things that matter.

“By focusing on the things that matter – family, friends, Rheson (her clothing label) and my movies,” Sonam told IANS in an email interview when asked about how she keeps herself away from all the media reports, especially on her personal life.

Rheson comes from the combination of Rhea and Sonam’s first names and is known for its collection that is designed to be quirky, affordable and for daily wear. The brand made its debut this year with a huge expansion plan.

“We are now extremely excited to expand this collaboration by launching Rheson on Shoppers Stop’s exclusive flagship store on Amazon.in,” Sonam said earlier.

On the Bollywood front, both Sonam and Rhea can’t wait for their next release “Veere Di Wedding”. Rhea has produced it, while Sonam is part of the cast along with Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania.

The film is directed by Shashanka Ghosh.

Taapsee, Angad enjoy lunch with Sandeep Singh

Actors Taapsee Pannu and Angad Bedi, who are currently in Shahbad, Punjab, to shoot for their next film on Sandeep Singh enjoyed a meal with the Indian hockey player.

Angad and Taapsee took time off and were met with warm hospitality at Sandeep’s house where they were greeted by his entire family, including his brother, wife, parents and kids. Apart from talking about the film, they also spoke about his personal experiences as a professional sports player. The actors were extremely happy with the love they got from Sandeep’s family.

“Going to Sandeep’s place was long due. Luckily, we were shooting in the same area where he lives so we decided to go n meet the entire family in person. Though we had met them before briefly on set, it was a good experience meeting them over lunch.

“They are very warm and sweet family and they cooked some amazing paranthas for us. It almost felt similar to how I feel when I visit my extended family members in Punjab. Smaller cities always have people with bigger hearts,” Taapsee said in a statement.

The film is being directed by Shaad Ali.
