One of the world’s most renowned footwear makers-designers from France recently gifted Sridevi four pair of his dazzling designer shoes, along with a special personal note. Victoria Beckham, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rihanna, Mila Kunis, Penelope Cruz…the list is simply endless. While many Hollywood divas may well swear by his tantalizing red-sole footwear, he seems to be smitten by our Bollywood beauty.
A TOI news report revealed: “We got to know about his fascination for the actress after we recently spotted Sridevi’s daughters sporting unique pairs. We heard that she happened to meet the designer at the recent Marrakech Film Festival, where she wore his shoes for a shoot. She said that she was indeed humbled by his gesture. “He is known as one among the masters of shoes. Despite that, he is very down-to-earth. I was surprised to receive these four pairs from him with a personal note. A pair each for my daughters, two for me!” she added.
In fact, Sridevi herself celebrated the success of her new film ‘English Vinglish’ by gifting Boney Kapoor, her husband and Bollywood producer, a brand new Porsche Cayenne. She reportedly bought it for over Rs.65 lakh. To make this more special this Cayenne was Porsche’s 100th piece to be sold in India.

Incidentally, when he celebrated his 70th birthday in October, he stated that the biggest gift ever was the intangible love of his family, whose warmth and affection keeps him going in his personal and professional life.
