Anil Kapoor and daughter Sonam Kapoor, who are in London to promote their home production Aisha, bonded with Karan Johar. The producer-director, who is also there, had dinner with the duo at Nobu, an upscale restaurant. The senior actor and KJo became close since the time Sonam was signed for Dharma Productions' I Hate Luv Storys. His younger daughter Rhea has been an AD on some Dharma films.
Sonam is currently on a two-day break from shooting Pankaj Kapoor's Mausam in Scotland. When Anil heard Karan was also in London, he invited him out to dinner. The fashionable director-producer turned up and brought a branded carry-on bag as a gift for his host.
A source adds, "The Kapoor papa and daughter caught up after weeks of being apart. The last time they met was in Scotland when he had flown down for her birthday (June 9). Karan and Sonam were meeting after the release of IHLS, so there was a lot to catch up on. "
Talking about the father and daughter promoting Aisha, a source says, "Sonam is getting tremendous international exposure because of Anil's global status. They have been interviewed by London's premier media people including those from CNN, BBC and Sunday Times."
Karan Johar says, "Anil, Sonam and I met for dinner. Anil is my friend. He had admired a bag I was carrying so I gifted him a similar one."
Incidentally, Shahrukh Khan, also in UK filming his sci-fi flick R.a.1 , wasn't part of this group.
