Hail­ing from a film fam­ily, with all her un­cles in­clud­ing Anil Kapoor and sib­lings Ar­jun Kapoor and Sonam K Ahuja al­ready es­tab­lished names in the in­dus­try, it was just a mat­ter of time be­fore Shanaya Kapoor, too, thought of be­com­ing an ac­tor.

Her fa­ther, San­jay Kapoor says he is re­ally proud to see how his daugh­ter is prep­ping her­self for her en­try as an ac­tor in Bol­ly­wood.

Shanaya’s good friends, Suhana Khan, daugh­ter of Shah Rukh Khan, and Ananya Pan­day, daugh­ter of Chunky Pan­day, are also set to make their Bol­ly­wood de­buts soon.

San­jay says that his daugh­ter is aware of the chal­lenges that await her when she en­ters the movie busi­ness and is happy to see how hard she is work­ing.

“This is a beau­ti­ful in­dus­try but I have told her that it is not easy and that she has to work very hard. She sees her fa­ther, her cousins, Anil chachu es­pe­cially who has been in the in­dus­try for 35 years and is still so very pas­sion­ate about work. She has been a part of the film in­dus­try since she was born and has seen things change in the in­dus­try,” shares San­jay.

He fur­ther says, “She is aware that if she is se­ri­ous about a ca­reer in films, she has to go through a lot. She has to give her best shot, which I am sure she will and she has to get a good di­rec­tor who will launch her.”

There are re­ports that Shanaya will be launched by film­maker Karan Jo­har. When asked who he would like to see launch Shanaya in Bol­ly­wood, San­jay, who is also a pro­ducer hav­ing backed Te­var (2014), says he would pre­fer his daugh­ter to be launched by some­one other than her fa­ther. “Right now, I would pre­fer that she starts work­ing with some­one else. She has to start on her own. I would like that to see her make it on her own… She is work­ing very hard to­wards it and I am very proud of her,” he con­cludes.

This is a beau­ti­ful in­dus­try but I have told her that it is not easy and that she has to work very hard. She has been a part of the film in­dus­try since she was born and has seen things change in the in­dus­try.
