The year 2018 saw great success for new entrants from the tinsel town. Newbies such as Sara Ali Khan (Kedarnath and Simmba) and Ishan Khatter (Beyond The Clouds and Dhadak) had a tremendous start and garnered great appreciation both from the viewers and the critics.
The same will follow in the year 2019 where Chunky Pandey’s daughter Ananya Pandey will be marking her acting debut with Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year 2. The film will also be starring Tiger Shroff and a new entrant Tara Sutaria.
Now, we heard that Actor Sanjay Kapoor and designer Maheep Kapoor’s daughter, Shanaya Kapoor, will be making her Bollywood debut soon. But, there’s a twist as she will not be working as an actor but as an AD.
Shanaya’s parents announced via Instagram posts that she will work as an assistant director on an upcoming film.
“All the best Shanaya #newbeginnings #newjourney,” Sanjay wrote alongside his post, which shows the father-daughter duo posing together.
“My baby’s gone to Lucknow for 2 weeks #MissYouAlready #AssistantDirectorsLife #LoveYou @shanayakapoor02 #ProudMama,” wrote Maheep, whose post also showed a younger Sanjay Kapoor posing with her daughter Shanaya.
Several of Shanaya’s cousins, such as Janhvi Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor, are already actors. Both Sonam and Arjun Kapoor also made their starts by assisting popular directors.
Sonam assisted Sanjay Leela Bhansali on Rani Mukherjee and Amitabh Bachchan starrer Black, while Arjun assisted Nikhil Advani on Kal Ho Naa Ho which starred Shah Rukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Preity Zinta in the leads.
Shanaya is often seen around the city with friends Ananya Pandey and Suhana Khan, daughter of Shah Rukh Khan, who has long been expected to debut as an actor in Bollywood.
For now, no other details have been shared about this upcoming project but we hope that it will be out really soon.
