Sanjay Kapoor on Wednesday took to his Instagram to share glamorous photos of his daughter Shanaya Kapoor. In the pictures, Shanaya is seen flaunting her washboard abs in a white sports bra, black track pants and an oversized colour-block jacket.
As soon as the photos were shared online, several compliments poured online. ''Oh my goodness!!! I just can’t take eyes off her,'' one wrote. Another commented, ''Next Bollywood sensation.'' Several others dropped heart and fire emojis in the comments section.
Shanaya is currently working as an assistant director to Sharan Sharma on Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. The film stars her cousin Janhvi Kapoor in the titular role of the former Indian Air Force pilot.
Earlier, in an interview with IANS, Shanaya said that it would be a dream come true for her to be launched in Bollywood by Karan Johar. “I mean, yeah! I don’t think any actor would say no. He is family. He is talented and the most amazing director. I think I would start crying if Karan ever directs me. I would get emotional and just die,” she said.
''After being an assistant director, I realised how much work goes into making a film. I learnt so much about camera lenses, close-up shots, how you get into the character, how you shoot an angry scene, what are the things that actors do on set. All this just made me more confident of what I wanted to do,” she told the news agency.

Spent two days trying to think of a caption that’ll do justice to what this experience has meant to me but nothing sums it up. It’s a film wrap and I feel blessed to have been on this special journey, and through it to find my best friend @sharansharma - like you say it’s all about the process; and I don’t think there will ever be one as pure, honest, adventurous and memorable as this one. Can’t wait for you guys to see it âÂ¤ï¸Â
Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, which also stars Pankaj Tripathi and Angad Bedi, is scheduled to release on April 24. However, it might be delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Gunjan made history as she flew into the war zone breaking norms that women flyers cannot be seen in combat roles. She was later bestowed with the Shaurya Chakra, an Indian military decoration awarded for valour, courageous action or self-sacrifice while not engaged in direct action with the enemy.
