Father Sanjay Kapoor opens up about daughter Shanaya Kapoor’s Bollywood entry

Shanaya Kapoor is all set to enter Bollywood with Dharma Productions.

Karan Johar had recently announced Shanaya Kapoor’s entry into his Dharma Cornerstone Agency. He also announced that she will soon be making her Bollywood debut under Dharma Productions.

She also announced the same on her Instagram handle with the caption “Woke up today with the most grateful heart! Here’s to a great journey ahead with the @dcatalent family. Excited to kickstart my FIRST FILM (ahhh!!) this July by @DharmaMovies, can’t wait for you all to see what we’re up to! Stay tuned! #DCASquad.”


Her father Sanjay Kapoor said he was “overwhelmed” by the recent developments. He also feels that Dharma Productions is the perfect banner for Shanaya to debut under.

He also denied that his stardom of the 90s has in any way influenced Shanaya’s entry into the movies. “Not at all, It is all Shanaya’s hard work and she deserves a good launch,” he added.

Shanaya has previously assisted movies such as Gunjan Saxena- The Kargil Girl which saw Jhanvi Kapoor playing the lead role. It was also produced under Dharma Productions.
