The year 2021 will see a bunch of new faces making their way into showbiz. One of them is the aspiring actress Shanaya Kapoor. The young starlet’s Bollywood debut is one of the most talked-about topics in the town.

Bollywood actors Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep Kapoor’s daughter Shanaya received a grand launch by none other than Karan Johar of Dharma Productions. The 21-year-old is preparing to start her own Bollywood career and is currently gearing up for the shoot of her first film, which is expected to start in July this year.  

During a recent interaction with SpotboyE, Shanaya’s dad Sanjay spoke of her debut and said, 


She (Shanaya Kapoor) has been wanting to be an actress for a very, very long time.

When asked about the advice he gave to Shanaya he said, 


This line is such that you learn with your own experience, having said that, she knows I am gonna be right behind her. 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.

- Sanjay Kapoor

Sanjay has been in the industry for more than 26 years now, and who also witnessed ups and downs in his career feels that his daughter should learn to survive on her own in this industry.

Speaking of Shayana, the aspiring actress signed her first film with Dharma Cornerstone Agency and will be romancing the other two DCA talents Gurfateh Pirzada and Lakshya Lalwani in the film.

As reported earlier, the rom-com is very much an urbane triangle love story and it goes on floors around mid-2021. 

Earlier, many reports made the rounds that Shanaya Kapoor will make her debut with Student of the year 3. 

SOTY 3 is being planned as a direct to digital film for Netflix. However, more details are yet to known.

Speaking of the two handsome hunks, Gurfateh Singh Pirzada was last seen in Kiara Advani-starrer Netflix film Guilty. On the other hand, Lakshya Lawani will be making his Bollywood debut with Karan Johar’s Dostana 2.

gurl-enchanted a month ago Good for her 👏 She is simply gorgeous 😍 Hoping that she won’t turn out to be another Katrina Kaif or Sara Ali Khan acting wise. Duniya ka dastoor hai that parents’ privileges will pass on to their kids, top level connections matter and you will be judged by your appearance 🤷‍♀️ To deny that is akin to apna hi khoon jalana. Plus, it’s the producer’s money - uski marzi kidhar bhi dale 🤷‍♀️ Compared to other eras, it’s a good time to be an actor with options of various mediums and opportunities galore.
