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 has earlier worked as an assistant director on the Netflix film Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, which starred her cousin Janhvi Kapoor. She has also featured in a few brand commercials. Talking about the experiences she gained while working behind the camera she said, “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.”
Shanaya also opened up about the ‘inevitable part’ of being a star kid and having to deal with the judgements, “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 was quoted saying.
