In an interview with The Times Of India, Sanjay revealed that he will have the first dance with his daughter. “It feels great that Shanaya has been chosen to represent India. I will be escorting her down the stairs, and her first dance will be with me. This is very special for her, and I am sure she will cherish the experience. The best part is that she will get a chance to interact with people from all over the world and get an insight into their cultures,” he said.

Shanaya, who will reportedly wear a red gown at the exclusive event, will be rehearsing the waltz with her father and her cavalier. Sanjay is nervous about matching steps with her. “I have to wear my dancing shoes and start rehearsing right now,” he laughed.

Sanjay said that he is waiting with bated breath for Shanaya’s big screen debut. “I can’t believe that she is so grown up that she is participating in le Bal and is waiting for the day when she signs a good film. At the same time, I am extremely nervous, which I wasn’t for my own career in films,” he said.

In 2017, Shanaya’s best friend and actor Ananya Panday made her debut at the 25th le Bal des Débutante. She made heads turn in a blue and black gown designed by Parisian couturier Jean Paul Gaultier.
