Sanah Kapoor, who makes her Bollywood debut with Shaandaar that also stars her brother Shahid Kapoor and dad Pankaj Kapur, plays “a fat girl” in the film.
“In our society there are certain fixed norms of beauty and beautiful girls. If someone is short or fat, people look at them differently which is very wrong. In the film, my character Esha goes though the same feelings,” she said.
Speaking about bonding with her star brother Shahid on the sets, Sanah said, “We share a typical elder brother and little sister bond. He is a very protective brother and he always treats me like a kid. I guess I will never be a grown-up for him.” Directed by Vikas Bahl and featuring Alia Bhatt, Shaandaar hits theatres on October 22, Thursday.
Talking about her dream role from the old era of Hindi films, Sanah said: “I would love to do Anarkali’s role and Sadhana’s role in Mera Saaya. I would like to explore, do different roles and prove myself as a good actor.”
