Shekhar Kapur and Suchitra Krishnamoorthi’s 15-year-old daughter Kaveri Kapur released her debut track, “Did You Know” on YouTube Friday, June 24. Since going live, the video has received over 9,000 views with Tweets of encouragement from some of Bollywood’s biggest stars!
Kaveri Kapur was only 11-years-old when she composed, wrote and sang “Did You Know.” The track is a simple love song of how being with the one you love makes everything seem so much brighter, you can trust they will always be there and together, you can overcome any obstacle. Now 15-years-old, the young Kapur has released a full music video to her original song. The music video is just as simple and serene as the song with its soft lighting and smooth transition of scenes of Kapur writing lyrics and recording the song in the studio. The young singer’s innocence truly shines through adding to the soft effect of the song. Check out the music video!
The sweet voice of this young star kid will captivate you—and why shouldn’t it? Kapur’s got talent in her genes from her equally talented parents. Kapur’s father, Shekar Kapur is a film director, producer, and actor known for his films like “Elizabeth” and “Bandit Queen.”
Mom Suchitra Krishnamoorthi is a singer, writer, and actress who debuted as an actress in 1993 opposite Shah Rukh Khan in “Kabhi Haa Kabhi Naa.” In support of his friends, King Khan tweeted about the song saying that it was “awesome” and praising the young singer as well as her parents.
