From Madam Dewi Sukarno's May 12 blog entry, titled “The Kano Sisters,” comes the following: “I heard that the Kano sisters requested Sony Pictures not to invite me to the film preview that they’re attending. I wonder why I should be placed together with the likes of them. We’re on entirely different levels. Or perhaps they don’t have the confidence… I guess you can call them beautiful but dull ‘cyborg’ sisters…”
Time and again, Sukarno (who likes the media to refer to her as Madam Dewi) has expressed disfavor toward the famed sisters since their first encounter 10 years ago. In her essay published in 2000, she described the Kano sisters as vixens, suggesting that they “return to the mountains” and in a 2006 magazine interview, called stories of their childhood “cheap pulp fiction.”
The sisters, on the other hand, have made no comment whatsoever. Pony Canyon, which distributes the Kano sisters’ DVD and manages their official website, stated that the sisters have no interest in what others say about them.
Entertainment reporter Masaru Nashimoto confides, “Precaution is always taken to ensure that Madam Dewi and the sisters don’t come into direct contact with each other. They almost did at a film-related event in August last year, which was a major headache to the parties involved. Perhaps the promoter feared a similar event could happen.”
The marketing department at Sony Pictures, though, denies knowledge of such a request from the sisters. No one wants to be involved after all.© Japan Today
