Shanaya Kapoor opens up on how she deals with judgements that come along with the ‘star kid’ tag
Sanjay and Maheep Kapoor’s daughter Shanaya Kapoor will soon make her Bollywood debut with Karan Johar‘s Dharma Productions. The movie is yet-to-be-titled. In a interview with ANI, Shanaya opened up about how she deals with judgements that a star kid face.
She told that “judgements are an inevitable part of the work she is pursuing”, but she stays “positive” and “focuses on the people who are always cheering” her, be it her followers on Instagram or the press/media. “I focus on their love and support, then the rest just fades out for me! Focusing on the positives is the way to be,” she added.
For the unversed, Shanaya worked as an assistant director on her cousin Janhvi Kapoor’s film Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl.
Sharing her experience, the starlet said, “Being a part of Gunjan Saxena was extremely special, and a very important journey for me to undergo before I started my career. I wanted to learn how a film is made, what the process is like, what are the aligned jobs for everyone on set, how actors prep for their roles, how background action works, there was so much I got to understand. It was a wonderful, fulfilling and enriching experience to see the entire team work towards one goal, it’s so wholesome making a film.”
Her biggest takeaway was “learning how the process before reaching set is the defining foundation of creating the story”.
It was in March this year, Karan revealed that Shanaya will be joining his Dharma Cornerstone Agency (DCA) squad and make her Bollywood debut with Dharma Productions.
