Another Kapoor To Dip Toes in Bollywood

Welcome this newbie in Bollywood but not as an actor!

With the launch of actors like Janhvi Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan and Ananya Panday, the gates of B-town seem to have recently opened to another celeb kid. Janhvi Kapoor’s cousin sister is all set to make her Bollywood debut. She’s none other than the daughter of actor Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep Kapoor’s daughter- Shanaya Kapoor. But surprisingly just like other star kids, Shanaya will not be seen on the big screen as an actress. Yes you heard it right.

The news is shared by Sanjay and Maheep Kapoor on the social media. Taking to the Instagram handle, mommy Maheep Kapoor shared a picture of hubby Sanjay Kapoor and beautiful daughter Shanaya. The caption of the picture reads as, “My baby’s gone to Lucknow for 2 weeks ????#MissYouAlready#AssistantDirectorsLife #LoveYou ?????????????? @shanayakapoor02#ProudMama ??”.

In this picture the father-daughter duo can be seen posing together.

Not just Maheep Kapoor but dad Sanjay Kapoor too shared a picture with Shanaya on his Instagram handle with the caption, “All the best Shanaya ??#newbeginnings #newjourney”.

These posts clearly shows that Shanaya will make her Bollywood debut as an assistant director of an upcoming film. According to the reports, Shanaya would be assisting Bollywood director Sharan Sharma with the Gunjan Saxena biopic starring her cousin sister Janhvi Kapoor. The team will be shooting in Lucknow for the next two weeks before moving to other locations.

Well this is not the first time when the member of Kapoor family started their career not in a film as the lead.

Earlier also, Shanaya’s cousins and established Bollywood actors Sonam and Arjun Kapoor started their careers by assisting popular directors. Sonam assisted Sanjay Leela Bhansali in ‘Black’ before she was seen in ‘Saawariya’, while Arjun assisted Nikhil Advani in the film ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’ before his debut with ‘Ishaqzaade’.

It is well famous that Shanaya Kapoor is good friends with Shah Rukh Khan's daughter Suhana Khan and Chunky Panday's daughter Ananya Panday. All the three beauties are spotted several times spending fun time together. Shanaya’s besties i.e. Ananya's Bollywood debut film Student Of The Year 2 is all set to release on 10th May this year, while Suhana recently starred in a play in London and aspires to be an actress as well.

It doesn't come as a surprise when we hear rumors about star kids following the footsteps of their parents into the glamorous world of Bollywood. While most of them decide to carry forward a similar legacy, a few also take the road less travelled. Daughter of actor Sanjay Kapoor and designer Maheep Kapoor, Shanaya Kapoor is all set to make her Bollywood debut.

Well I hope to see Shanaya Kapoor on the silver screen just like her other cousins! What you guyz think about this. Tell me in comments and do let me know!
