Khushi Kapoor Will Make Her Bollywood Debut. Dad Boney Won’t Launch Her Though
“I have the resources, but I would rather have someone else launch her because I am her father and one tends to get indulgent,” said Boney Kapoor
After Janhvi Kapoor, Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s younger daughter Khushi will also step into Bollywood as an actress, the producer confirmed in an interview with Bombay Times. Janhvi made her debut as an actress with Shashank Khaitan’s 2018 film Dhadak. Now, talking to Bombay Times about Khushi Kapoor’s acting debut, Boney Kapoor said: “Yes, Khushi is also keen on acting.” He also confirmed that there will be an announcement soon about his younger daughter’s debut in films. “You will hear an announcement soon,” Boney Kapoor told the publication, adding that he won’t be launching Khushi.
“I have the resources, but I would rather have someone else launch her because I am her father and one tends to get indulgent. You can’t afford to do that as a filmmaker and nor is it good for the actor. Anil (Kapoor) was still an established actor, so it didn’t affect him much, but I think I became an indulgent brother with Sanjay (Kapoor) when he made his entry into films,” said Boney Kapoor.
Producer Boney Kapoor launched brother Sanjay in Bollywood with the 1995 film Prem and Anil Kapoor, now a renowned actor, also delivered his breakthrough performance in brother Boney Kapoor’s Woh Saat Din in 1983.
According to Boney Kapoor, Khushi will make her acting debut in a film directed by someone he “respects.” He told Bombay Times: “I would want Khushi to find her own footing. She will be launched by someone I respect and someone I feel secure and safe about.”
