Karan Johar had announced that he would be launching Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep Sandhu’s daughter Shanaya Kapoor in June this year. The project, which is being overseen by Shashank Khaitan, is now ready. Also making his debut in the film will be Lakshya Lalwani who was earlier finalised as part of the love triangle in Dostana 2 starring Janhvi Kapoor and Kartik Aaryan. With Dostana 2 in the process of being recast, Karan has decided to give him another break.
“Apart from Shanaya and Lakshya, the film will also star Gurtateh Singh Pirzada. All the three actors have been part of several workshops to help them getting into the skin of the characters. The film is expected to go on the floors soon.
Shashank had directed Dhadak, the debut of Shanaya’s cousin Janhvi.
It was originally scheduled to be helmed by Paras Chakravarti, another of the 14 new directors launched by Dharma. Shashank is currently wrapping up his comedy film with Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and Kiara Advani.
