In January, Karan Johar introduced Sanjay Kapoor’s daughter, Shanaya to the world of showbiz as he got her on board his talent management agency. Ever since then, there have been ample of speculations around her launch pad, with many reports stating that Shanaya would make her acting debut with Student of The Year 3. However, Pinkvilla has learnt that the actress will enter the Hindi film industry with a romantic comedy, which will be produced by Karan with Shashank Khaitan.

“It’s a love triangle in the rom-com space and two other actors in the film will be Lakshya Lalwani and Gurfateh Pirzada. The trio has been attending several acting workshops over the last 6 months as the first idea was to take the film on floors by the month of July.  However, the second wave of pandemic has delayed all the plans and the makers are now awaiting restrictions to be lifted before chalking out a new schedule,” revealed a source close to the development.

Once the lockdown is eased, a team from Dharma will go on a recce abroad and as things stand today, the idea is to begin shooting in the last quarter of 2021. “Major chunk of the story is set outside India and hence, it's important for the covid scenario to come under control. It’s being planned as a big 2022 release in theatres. While the script is locked and acting workshops have already commenced, it’s WIP for the other aspects of pre-production. If not for the second wave, an official announcement, with the title and director would have been made by now,” the source added. Interestingly, Shashank Khaitan, the director of Dulhania Franchise and Dhadak, has taken keen interest in not just the production front, but also creative aspect.

He has been dividing his time and attention on this yet untitled rom-com and his own directorial, Mr. Lele with Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and Kiara Advani. “Even Mr. Lele is on floors, and the team will commence the second schedule soon in the city,” the source concluded. This would be Khaitan’s third stint as a producer after Good Newwz and Bhoot.

Anonymous : Another sh**tty nepotism product... These kids don't have to struggle even a bit Just came from big families goes to another country to study their so called acting Return and get a big production film from their fathers friend then do some acting workshops even where their they get very special attention. And then get launched they don't have to go from one place to another just to give a simple audition ... And have all the contacts with media to promote their film to another extend Guys let me give you an example, SRK's daughter suhana khan rejected a dharma production film can any struggling actor have the guts to discard a dharma film Guys please understand their privilages and lets show them their real place Such people don't allow real talents to come up and that's why no one from India is gonna rise and get an Oscar... Sh**ty people who wanna rule India, not world because no one knows them their.....

Anonymous : Boycott. Just Dharma production and Skf production films . These two productionsons only introduce nepo children. YRF keeps a balance.SLB did not direct even his own niece . His own niece who has film diploma from losangeles is struggling. All respect to SLB and Adi chopra. Karan Johar chindi chor , he will go straight to hell.
