In March this year, Karan Johar announced that Maheep and Sanjay Kapoor’s daughter Shanaya Kapoor will be launched by his Dharma Cornerstone Agency (DCA). Shanaya’s debut film is scheduled to go on floors in July this year. Ahead of her silver screen debut, Sanjay Kapoor revealed that his daughter wanted to be an actress for a very long time. For the unversed, Shanaya has worked as one of the assistants on Janhvi Kapoor’s Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl.

Sanjay wants his daughter to learn from her own mistakes and have her own experiences. Speaking about his daughter’s desire to be an actress, the Sirf Tum actor told SpotboyE, “She is been wanting to be an actress for a very, very long time. This line is such that you learn with your own experience, having said that, she knows I am gonna be right behind her.”

He went on to add, “Honestly, I feel every individual should grow on their own and it’s better that, she learns from her own mistakes and experience. This way she will enjoy her journey much more rather than I hold her hand for everything.

Back in March this year, Shanaya sharing details of her debut film had posted, “Woke up today with the most grateful heart! Here’s to a great journey ahead with the DC talent family. Excited to kickstart my first film (Ahhh!) this July by Dharma Movies, can’t wait for you all to see what we’re up to! Stay tuned.”

Reportedly, Shanaya will be romancing Gurfateh Pirzada and Lakshya Lalwani in her debut film. Details of her debut film are still kept under wraps by mentor Karan Johar.
