Many star kids tend to follow in the footsteps of their parents. And the latest one who seems to be doing so is Ajay Devgn and Kajol’s daughter, Nysa. The 11-year-old is already working on her maiden project — a short film.

"It is part of a school assignment, and has got nothing to do with the real world of films. She is quite excited about it as she will be working on it with her close friends. Like all proud parents, Ajay and Kajol are also very thrilled about it," says an insider close to the family, adding that "Ajay has only shared this news with a few close friends and family members".

Ajay couldn’t be reached for a comment, but earlier this month he did reveal to us that Nysa is interested in films. "My daughter is into movies, music and gymnastics," he had said.

Although Ajay’s primary interest lies in acting, he made his directorial debut with U, Me Aur Hum in 2008. He is preparing to direct his second film now.

Incidentally, Nysa’s grandfather, Veeru Devgan, had also directed a film titled Hindustan Ki Kasam (1999).
