Earlier this week, Karan Johar made an announcement about Maheep and Sanjay Kapoor’s daughter Shanaya Kapoor is set to debut with Dharma Productions as well as her joining his newly launched talent company – Dharma Cornerstone Agency (DCA).
Initially, rumours were going on that Kapoor is the face of Student Of The Year 3 but now it has been reported that she will be a part of a romcom, which will be a love triangle. Lakshya Lalwani and Gurfateh Pirzada will be playing the lead roles in the film.
According to Bollywood Hungama, a source says, “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.”
As for SOTY 3, it is being planned as a digital only film for Netflix. The source 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.”
Pirzada was last seen in Guilty and Lalwani is set to make hi debut in Dostana 2. Meanwhile, Kapoor has worked as assistant director on the sets of Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl.
