Actor Sanjay Kapoor‘s daughter, Shanaya Kapoor, is all set to start her journey in the movie business. Rumours were rife in the Bollywood grapevine that she is gearing up for her debut in Hindi films. However, the latest post by her mother, Maheep Kapoor, reveals there’s something else on Shanaya’s mind. Maheep has posted a lovely picture of Shanaya and Sanjay on social media wishing her daughter luck for her new journey. The post has revealed that the 19-year-old girl has left her house to assist a director on a film. This means, that opposed to all the speculations, Shanaya hasn’t opted for acting but has shown her inclination towards working behind the camera.
Maheep captioned the series of photos she posted on Instagram as “My baby’s gone to Lucknow for 2 weeks 🙁#MissYouAlready #AssistantDirectorsLife #LoveYou ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🧿 @shanayakapoor02 #ProudMama ❤️” (sic)
Both Shanaya and her mother have a close-knit group of friends who belong to the film industry. The young stunner is good friends with Ananya Pandey and Suhana Khan. While Ananya has forayed into the industry with Dharma Productions’ Student of The Year 2, Suhana has also shown her love for acting by doing some theatre in college. Ananya’s debut film, directed by Punit Malhotra, features her with Tiger Shroff and Tara Sutaria. It’s releasing on May 10 this year. Suhana, however, has been given strict instructions by her dad, superstar Shah Rukh Khan, to get done with her education before stepping into the movie business.
Earlier, reacting to the news of Shanaya’s Bollywood debut, her father and actor Sanjay Kapoor had told the media that she wants to be an actor but she’s too young to face the camera right now. He told DNA, “Honestly, I really don’t know when that will happen. She has just finished her 12th standard and she’s working towards it. But she hasn’t signed anything till now; she’s too young. Hopefully, soon enough.”
