It was reported few days back that Sanjay Kapoor and wife Maheep Kapoor’s daughter and Janhvi Kapoor’s first cousin Shanaya Kapoor is venturing into Bollywood as an assistant director.
Maheep Kapoor went on to share a picture of young Shanaya with her father on social media with hashtag #assistantdirectorslife, saying she missed her.
On Sunday, Sanjay Kapoor also took to social media to wish luck to Shanaya. He wrote,
“All the best Shanaya #newbeginnings #newjourney.”
Now, it has been reported by Mumbai Mirror that Shanaya’s first project would be none other than the one featuring her cousin Janhvi Kapoor. Shanaya would be assistant director for Gunjan Saxena Biopic.
The team is currently shooting in Lucknow and as Maheep Kapoor’s post suggested, Shanaya has joined the crew in Lucknow as a result.
As per the report, Shanaya will also be seen on silver screen next year, but before taking the big leap, her parents want her to experience the life behind the camera as well.
As per Mirror, a source told them,
“The team will be shooting in Lucknow for the next two weeks before moving to other locations. While Shanaya has made up her mind about being an actress, her parents wanted her to experience life behind the scenes first. She had been making regular rounds of Karan Johar’s Andheri office to work on the project.”
We wish the Kapoor sisters all the very best!
