It’s time to welcome Shanaya Kapoor in the industry but not as an actor.
After Sonam Kapoor, Harshvarrdhan Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor a third member of the same family’s third generation has now glided through the gates of Bollywood. It should be noted in this regard that Surendra Kapoor, the grandfather, was the first member of the family who made a mark in the film indystry. Maintaining the trend recently, another progeny – Shanaya Kapoor, daughter of Sanjay and Maheep Kapoor, has stepped into the world of glamour and films.
It should also be noted that the Kapoor clan has been in the news lately for the impending release of Indra Kumar’s Total Dhamaal, in which uncle Anil Kapoor plays a pivotal role.
However, unlike her cousins Sonam, Arjun and Janhvi (the latest Bollywood entrant from the family), Shanaya is not debuting as an actress.
Sanjay and Maheep revealed through separate Instagram posts that Shanaya has been hired as assistant director for an upcoming project, for which filming has started in Lucknow.
Sanjay and Maheep, howver, refrained from sharing any details of the project but wished their daughter luck.
“All the best Shanaya #newbeginnings #newjourney,” Sanjay wrote on Instagram while Maheep posted throwback photos of Shanaya and captioned it: “My baby’s gone to Lucknow for two weeks #MissYouAlready #AssistantDirectorsLife #LoveYou #ProudMama.”
Several Bollywood personalities congratulated and wished luck to the youngster. Malaika Arora, Delnaaz Irani, Amrita Arora and Navya Naveli Nanda also added their congratulatory messages in the comments section.
