"It’s a mix of all kinds of emotions."
Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep Kapoor’s daughter Shanaya Kapoor is all set to begin her career in films with Karan Johar’s production Bedhadak.
While she is yet to start filming for the film, she recently opened up about her debut in an interview.
She feels that the film should make people believe that she earned her debut opportunity.
Bedhadak also stars Lakshay and Gurfateh Pirzada. In the film, Shanaya Kapoor plays the role of Nimrit.
After the first look posters of the film were released, reports suggested that the film was indefinitely postponed. However, Karan Johar clarified that the film will begin in 2023.
Now in an interview, Shanaya shared her thoughts about her first film.
Shanaya told Zoom: “I’m both nervous and excited. Nervous because it’s important that I do the best job and because it isn’t just a first film, it’s the first step towards hopefully a long and varied career.
“And excited because I’m finally a step closer towards realising a dream I’ve had since childhood.
“It’s a mix of all kinds of emotions. Gurfateh, Lakshya, and I have prepped a lot for it, and it’s a very special film for the whole Bedhadak team.
“It’s very close to my heart! I’m extremely grateful to have gotten a film like Bedhadak.”
Shanaya Kapoor called Bedhadak not a typical launch as the story revolves around three youngsters.
She said: “I’m grateful for the opportunity and I’m working very hard to prove that I deserve it.
“I want my performance in this film to make people feel that I earned this opportunity, that I didn’t waste it or that I didn’t take it for granted. I’ve worked very hard and I will continue.”
Shanaya Kapoor made news earlier this year when she walked the ramp for Manish Malhotra.
She also appeared in Seema Khan, Bhavana Pandey, Maheep Kapoor and Neelam Kothari’s popular reality show Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives.
Meanwhile, Maheep revealed that her husband, Sanjay Kapoor cheated on her in the early days of their marriage during an episode of Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives.
She said that due to Sanjay’s ‘indiscretion’, she walked out of the marriage and left home with Shanaya.
On the show, Maheep told Seema Sajdeh: “Now you know it, Seema. Initially in my marriage, there was an indiscretion that Sanjay had or whatever.
“I walked out with Shanaya. I stood up for myself but then, I had a newborn baby.
“Again, as a woman and as a mother, the first priority is my child.”
“I owed my daughter this amazing father, which he is. I owed it to myself. And if I look back and if I broke this s**t up, I would have regretted it all my life.
“Because when my kids walk into my home, my husband walks into my home, this is their sanctuary. They need to feel peace. And I feel Sanjay gives that to me also.”
