Veteran actor Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep Kapoor’s daughter Shanaya Kapoor is all set to make her next Bollywood debut. However, she won’t be playing the role of a character in a movie.
Contrary to her contemporaries who have already made their debut in various movies, Shanaya will be the assistant director for a project and has already flown to Lucknow for two weeks. The news was revealed when Shanaya’s mom released loving posts for her daughter for Instagram, detailing that she was already missed and that she wished all the best for her journey ahead. Dad Sanjay Kapoor also posted a picture with his daughter and wished her the best for the new journey in her career.
Belonging to the Kapoor family itself, Janhavi Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor happen to be Shanaya’s cousins. She is often seen with Chunky Pandey’s daughter Ananya, who will be making her debut with the romantic-comedy-drama “Student of the Year 2” with Tiger Shroff and Tara Sutaria. Shanaya also spends time with Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter, Suhana, who was once expected to star in a Bollywood movie. However, Suhana has said that she will enter Bollywood after completing her education.
Shanaya’s cousins, Sonam and Arjun Kapoor, began their Bollywood careers by working as assistant directors for “Black” and “Kal Ho Na Ho” respectively. Later, they moved on to make their Bollywood debut in acting as well. On the other hand, Janhvi Kapoor has made her debut with “Dhadak” opposite Ishaan Khatter and will be seen in other projects as well. Her other cousins include Rhea Kapoor, Khushi Kapoor, Harshvardhan Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor as well. She is the niece of the veteran actor Anil Kapoor.
When asked about Shanaya’s Bollywood, Sanjay Kapoor had reportedly said that Shanaya has completed her 12th standard examinations and is working towards a formal Bollywood debut. However, she is ‘too young’ at the moment and has not signed any projects yet. She has completed her schooling from Ecole Mondiale School and has a younger brother called Jahaan.
With that being said, we are eagerly waiting for Shanaya Kapoor’s debut as an assistant director in an as-of-now unnamed Bollywood movie. We hope that she joins the acting bandwagon soon as well, and does her Kapoor ‘khandaan’ proud.
