The newbie was also an assistant on the sets of cousin sister Janhvi Kapoor’s Gunjan Saxena – The Kargil Girl. She will be launched by Karan Johar who is known for introducing Sidharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Ananya Panday.

A source told Bollywood Hungama that she will not be launched by SOTY 3.
Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep Kapoor’s daughter Shanaya Kapoor to Romance Gurfateh Pirzada & Lakshya Lalwani
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 adds, “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.”
