Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor’s sister,
Riddhima Kapoor Sahni has stayed away from the limelight, pursuing her designing career and her own jewellery line. Those keeping up with her social media updates will know for varied festive jewellery collects, some of which have even been promoted by fellow B-town celebrities.
However, according to an online report, Riddhima has been accused of copying an earring design of the legendary Mikimoto Kokichi earrings (the famous creator of the first
cultured pearl). A page on Instagram even claimed that the picture Sahni used, was in fact taken from the brand’s website.
Taking to her social media account, Riddhima issued a clarification and apology saying, “We at Riddhima Kapoor Sahni Jewellery, do not encourage plagiarism! We are extremely sorry for not tagging the original designer for an inspirational post of the diamond and pearl earrings by Mikimoto Kokichi- a legend with pearls! We respect the creativity of every designer and would never copy and disregard any of them. Thank you.
