‘Sky is the limit’, Sanjay Kapoor wrote in his shout-out to daughter Shanaya Kapoor on Instagram as she began shooting for her acting debut. On Thursday, Sanjay dedicated a message to Shanaya and added the hashtag 'first day of shoot'.

Shanaya will be launched in Bollywood by filmmaker Karan Johar in a Dharma Productions movie. Sharing a bunch of old and new photos with Shanaya, Sanjay wrote: “New beginnings, so proud of you, work hard, focus, this is only the beginning, sky is the limit. #firstdayshoot #excitingtimes, love you.”

The comments section of Sanjay Kapoor’s post was flooded with red hearts and the heart-eyes emojis. Shanaya Kapoor commented, “Love you dad”. Filmmaker Farah Khan sent best wishes to her while Bhavana Pandey dropped the evil-eye emojis.

Take a look at Sanjay Kapoor’s post for Shanaya on her first day of shoot here:

In March this year, Shanaya Kapoor shared the news about her Bollywood debut with the following announcement: “Woke up today with the most grateful heart! Here's to a great journey ahead with the Dharma Cornerstone Agency family. Excited to kickstart my FIRST FILM (ahh!) this July by Dharma Productions, can't wait for you all to see what we're up to! Stay tuned! #DCASquad.”

Shanaya, daughter of Sanjay and Maheep Kapoor, has also worked as an assistant director on the Netflix film Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, which was headlined by her cousin Janhvi Kapoor. She has also featured in a few brand commercials.

Last month, speaking to news agency ANI, Shanaya Kapoor opened up about the ‘inevitable part’ of being a star kid – judgements – and how she deals with it. “Judgments are an inevitable part of the work I am pursuing, but I stay positive and focus on the people who are always cheering me on, whether it be followers on Instagram or the press/media, I focus on their love and support, then the rest just fades out for me! Focusing on the positives is the way to be,” she told ANI.

Shanaya also talked about how assisting on Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl helped her understand what happens behind the scenes: “Being a part of Gunjan Saxena was extremely special, and a very important journey for me to undergo before I started my career. I wanted to learn how a film is made, what the process is like, what are the aligned jobs for everyone on set, how actors prep for their roles, how background action works, there was so much I got to understand. It was a wonderful, fulfilling and enriching experience to see the entire team work towards one goal, it's so wholesome making a film.”
