Actor Janhvi Kapoor has resumed shooting of her upcoming film, Gunjan Saxena - The Kargil Girl in which she plays the title role of pilot Gunjan Saxena.

Janhvi has now shared a new picture of Shanaya standing outside her vanity van and captioned it, “OMG chop chop chop.”
While Janhvi didn’t share her look from the sets of the film, Shanaya is seen in a plain white tee and black jeggings paired with a black cap.
Earlier, Sanjay had shared a picture of Shanaya sweating it out in the sun. He posted it with the caption, “My Hard working daughter shooting in 41 degrees as an assistant director, warm welcome to the film industry.”
Talking about her gearing up to make a career in Bollywood, Sanjay recently told PTI in an interview, “She is learning the ropes. She is taking her acting, dance and diction classes. In our family, she has watched me, her uncle and cousins closely. She knows hard work matters. You can be anybody’s daughter or niece but it is going to be your dedication that will take you ahead.”
Recently, a video of Shanaya belly dancing to drum beats had gone viral. Belly dancer and Tahitian instructor Sanjana Muthreja had shared a video of their performance in black costumes on her Instagram account. Shanaya’s fans were elated to watch her belly dancing and praised her in the comments section. A fan wrote, “Shanaya aahhh!! Next sensational actress from Kapoor legacy for sure.” Another commented, “What a performance.”
