A video in which Khushi Kapoor introduces herself at the New York Film Academy, has been shared online. Khushi aspires to become an actor, like her mother Sridevi, and sister Janhvi Kapoor.
Khushi is currently enrolled at the NYFA. In the video, shared by a fan club on Instagram, the aspiring actor says that she wants to work with her family, and prove herself before ‘jumping in’.
“Hi, I am Khushi Kapoor. My family is in the business but I have always just looked from afar,” she says in the almost three-minute video. “I would definitely love to work with my family at some point in the future. I would like to prove myself and prove my place before I jump into working with my family. There’s really no other way to go about it than to immerse yourself into it,” she adds.
The video features Khushi talking to the camera, with footage from classrooms and sets interspersed in between. Khushi says that she joined the NYFA because one of her cousins had attended as well. “I really enjoy all of my classes over here but the ones that have stuck with me are acting for films and improv. I love acting for films because I feel like I am in a movie and actually working. It’s been an incredible experience for me,” she continues in the video.
Janhvi had earlier spoken about her sister going away, during a conversation with Anaita Shroff Adajania on her show Feet Up with the Stars, “She is going to NYFA. Then after she comes back, she will figure what she wants to do.” She had added, “I’m getting palpitations just thinking about Khushi going to... He (dad Boney Kapoor) just has to think about it and he’ll start crying.”
