Shanaya Kapoor might still have time to set foot as an actress, but she might be working with her cousin Janhvi Kapoor on a movie. Janhvi, who made her debut with Shashank Khaitan’s ‘Dhadak’ last year, will be working with Shanaya on the professional front for the first time.
Reports say Shanaya has been secured for Janhvi’s next film, the biopic on Gunjan Saxena, reports DNA India. Janhvi also has another project, Karan Johar’s ‘Takht,’ running at the same time.
Shanaya has taken the chair of an assistant director and will be shooting for the biopic in Lucknow for two weeks. Sharing a photo of Shanaya hugging her farther Sanjay Kapoor, her mother Maheep Kapoor wrote on Instagram, “My baby’s gone to Lucknow for 2 weeks #MissYouAlready #AssistantDirectorsLife #LoveYou @shanayakapoor02 #ProudMama”
Shanaya is not the first person to step into the chair of an assistant director. Her brother Arjun Kapoor also began his acting career by first being an assistant director on ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’ (2003) and ‘Salaam-e-Ishq’ (2007).
