Shanaya Kapoor, the daughter of Sanjay and Maheep Kapoor, is set to make her acting debut in films. Karan Johar, through his talent management firm Dharma Cornerstone Agency, launches the star kid in movies after becoming an assistant director in Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. Shanaya will begin filming for her debut film in July of this year, with more details to follow.
Karan officially introduced Shanaya to the world ahead of her shoot with a sultry photoshoot. He penned, “@shanayakapoor02, welcome to the #DCASquad! It’ll be an unforgettable and thrilling journey that starts this July with your first film with @DharmaMovies. @apoorva1972 @buntysajdeh @rajeevmasand @udaysinghgauri @dcatalent @apoorva1972 @buntysajdeh @rajeevmasand @udaysinghgauri @dcatalent”
Shanaya also shared a montage of her photoshoot and stated, “Excited to kickstart my FIRST FILM (ahhh!!) this July by @DharmaMovies, can’t wait for you all to see what we’re up to! Stay tuned!”
Meanwhile, the star kid’s parents shared the same caption on Instagram, saying, “With her unabashed passion, resilience, and sparkle – My daughter is all set to take over your screens shortly.” Give her your love and blessings as she prepares to embark on the adventure of making her FIRST FILM.”
In 2019, she stated that if Karan Johar, the “most beautiful director,” ever directs her, she will become emotional and “just die.”
“As soon as I finished school, my parents said, ‘Go to LA or New York and take a course,'” she recalled. However, she was set on pursuing a career in the film industry. “Being on a movie set is the best way to learn. Karan has always been by my side “she continued.
