Remember Janhvi Kapoor killing the internet with her dance video that also featured her Dhadak co-star Ishaan Khattar? That was the first time the world took note of Janhvi’s dancing skills. The film went on to a big blockbuster at the box office with Janhvi’s fans falling in love with her acting and dancing skills in equal measure. Months later, videos of Janhvi performing a belly dance to the song Akh Lad Jave set the internet on fire. In the viral video shared by Colors TV, Janhvi was flaunting her belly dancing skills to utmost perfection. Now, the Dhadak star has faces stiff competition from within the family as cousin Shanaya Kapoor has set the dance floor on fire with her incredibly mesmerising belly dance.
Shanaya, daughter of Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep Kapoor, is currently receiving dance training from one Sanjana Muthreja, who took to Instagram to showcase the young star kid’s performance. In the video, Shanaya is seen performing her belly dance with Sanjana leaving her fans awestruck. One Instagram user wrote, “Shanaya aahhh!! Next sensational actress from Kapoor legacy for sure.” Another commented, “Shanaya is a Dubai queen.”
Last week, Sanjana had announced that she would soon share the long video of her belly dance session with Shanaya. “Bellydance video coming up soon with,” her post had read.
In June this year, Janhvi had taken the ‘#DD2challenge’ with her zingaat moves from the film Dhadak. As expected, the video had sent her fans into a frenzy. It’s clear that dance runs in the veins of the Kapoor clan.
While Shanaya has not revealed her plans with regards to Bollywood, Janhvi has already bagged several projects after Dhadak. She has signed Karan Johar’s multi-starrer Takht and Gunjan Saxena – The Kargil Girl. In fact, Shanaya has assisted director Sharan Sharma on Gunjan Saxena – The Kargil Girl.
