The newbie started working as an assistant on the sets of cousin sister Janhvi Kapoor’s Gunjan Saxena. Shanaya will be launched by non-other then Karan Kohar who is responsible for launching most of the star kids in Bollywood.
While everyone thought Shanaya will be the face of Student Of The Year 3, it has been reported that KJo has some other plans for the new Kapoor girl.
A source was quoted as saying, “Shanaya has been signed on officially by Karan’s talent management team Dharma Cornerstone Agency. She has also bagged her first film and it will also star other DCA talents Gurfateh Pirzada and Lakshya Lalwani. The rom-com is very much an urbane triangle love story and it goes on floors around mid-2021. Depending on the shoot, the team will plan its release.”
SOTY3 will be a digital release, the source also added, “Shanaya was indeed being considered along with Alaya F for SOTY 3. But Maheep and KJo discussed it and they didn’t want her first film to not have a theatrical release. As for now, it’s not known if Shanaya will still do SOTY 3 but that definitely won’t be her big debut. The rom com with Lakshya and Gurfateh will be a theatrical release and will introduce her into the movies.”
Recently Karan took to his social media handle and wrote, “Another beautiful addition to our growing @dcatalent family! Welcome to the #DCASquad, @shanayakapoor02. Her enthusiasm, perseverance and diligence is so amazing to see. Join us in showering your love & blessings as she begins her first film with @DharmaMovies, this July!”
