Samara Sahni is adorable beyond words with many moods! Her beautiful mommy, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, often regards her as her ‘lifeline’. Born in a super-filmy family, filmygiri runs in Samara’s blood! Her granny, Neetu Kapoor often keeps sharing glimpses from ‘Samara diaries’ with all her fans and followers. On Neetu ji’s 60th birthday, she had shared a video of already a diva-in-the-making, Samara, wishing her naani, a happy birthday. Sharing the video, the star naani had written, “Unadulterated love so pure #samstories #loveher”. Here’s the video:
And today, Samara Sahni turns 8 years old! On account of the same, her entrepreneur mommy took to Instagram and posted a heartwarming wish for her princess. Sharing a collage of 5 pictures, depicting the many moods of the mother and daughter duo, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni wrote, “Happiest Bday my princess #Samara May you forever sparkle and shine like the star that you are - I love you so much #Samturns8”. Riddhima also shared a couple of pictures on her Instagram story. Here are the pictures that she has shared:
Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, in an interview with Indusparent in 2017, shared about becoming a mother to Samara Sahni. Therein, she had stated, “I feel more connected to my mother now that I am one myself. Now I know my mother was right about everything. That time you think she’s not right, you’re rebel, but she was so right. We are certainly closer as friends and now we handle Samara together, because she’s quite naughty.”
Riddhima Kapoor Sahni had further added, “My life changed after Samara was born. It was completely upside down, but a lovely journey, beautiful journey, and I’ve enjoyed having her. She’s growing up very quickly, but she’s just a joy. It’s so lovely to see your child grow in front of you and so beautifully.” (Must Read: Bollywood And TV Celeb Kids' 'Rang Barse' Mood As They Celebrated Holi With The Pichkaris And Gulaal)
Further speaking about being a ‘supermom’, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni had shared, “Indian mums are not at all under any kind of pressure to be supermums because you do what you are capable of doing. You have families here, you have parents, we all live in joint families, and some of us who don’t live in joint families, our parents are right there to help us.”
Riddhima Kapoor Sahni had also added, “There are people to help you around and there is help around. If you’re able to handle it alone, that’s great. But there’s nothing called a supermum. In my world, every mum is a supermum, because when you become a mother, you sleep with your one eye open. And trust me since I’ve had my Samara, I’ve not had a goodnight sleep because my one eye is always on her.”
Samara Kapoor and her superstar maamu, Ranbir Kapoor are very close. Revealing a super-interesting account of the same, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni was once quoted as saying, “Samara is just like my dad — she is totally like him. She has him and Ranbir wrapped around her little finger and she means business. Girls chase Ranbir and he runs after Samara."
Riddhima Kapoor Sahni also spoke about daughter, Samara Sahni in an interview and had shared, “She’ll keep asking me, "Mamma, why do I have to go to school? Let me help you in your jewellery business"; "Mamma, why do you get to wear pretty clothes, jewellery and make-up every day and why can’t I?" To a large extent I indulge her, as does everyone in the family. But I just want her to complete her formal education, as besides her naughtiness, she’s very bright and a thinker with an elephantine memory and sometimes, her thought processes befuddle me and make me wonder if she’s really only five. These days, kids teach you a lot."
Just 8 years old and Samara Sahni already has a fashion label named after her! Talking about the same with Bollywood Hungama, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni was quoted as saying, “Sam and Friends is our clothing brand and named after our daughter, Samara. Bharat is into exports of garments and we always wanted to start our own retail brand. Samara won't be the face or model for it but we have taken a few photos of her wearing the brand which we may or may not put up. We made a launch video where we are talking about the launch day but after that we won't be using her as the model because she's too young for it. Samara is too chhotu for all this right now. We didn't want to use her face but just her name basically." (Also Read: Inaaya Naumi Kemmu All Dipped In Holi Colours, Soha Ali Khan Wishes Her Fans With Lovely Picture)
