Actor-producer Sanjay Kapoor just confirmed what we were eagerly waiting for. Following the footsteps of Sonam Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Harshvardhan Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor; his daughter Shanaya Kapoor is also confirmed to make her Bollywood debut very soon. Shanaya Kapoor is the elder daughter of Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep Kapoor. When asked why his daughter didn’t take proper course in filmmaking, he said, Shanaya expressed of learning A-Z of the filmmaking process on the movie sets itself instead of classroom.
The actor confirmed during his interaction with Mumbai Mirror, that his daughter is all set to step in films with the right kind of project. Shanaya is working on the sets of Janhvi Kapoor’s upcoming film Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl as an assistant director. Sanjay said, “Nothing is finalized yet. If the right project happens tomorrow, Shanaya is ready for it.” Without giving out much details of the project, when asked if it would be Karan Johar turning a launchpad for her as well, the actor didn’t give any confirmation.
Sanjay was further quoted saying by Mumbai Mirror, that Shanaya feels being an AD allows the person to learn everything on the sets, which involves interacting with spotboys to the director, indirectly making an actor value all the people involved in a filmmaking process.
Shanaya recently impressed the netizens by showing off her dancing skills on the internet platform. Sanjay was last seen in Mission Mangal as Vidya Balan’s husband and Sonam Kapoor’s recent release The Zoya Factor.
