Filmmaker Karan Johar took to Twitter to announce the Bollywood debut of Shanaya Kapoor, actor Sanjay Kapoor’s daughter, with the upcoming Dharma Productions film titled Bedhadak. The movie will also star actors Gurfateh Pirzada and Lakshya Lalwani.

The movie is written and directed by Shashank Khaitan, who also directed Janhvi Kapoor’s debut film Dhadak (2018).

A day earlier, Johar had revealed that he would be announcing the names of three new “members” of his “family of storytelling”, along with a video featuring Dharma backed star kids. “This generation is brimming with talent like never before and it’s time we tap into it!” he wrote in the post caption.

In a subsequent post, Karan Johar also introduced Lalwani as a part of his other home production Dostana 2, co-starring Janhvi Kapoor.

Pirzada was also a part of the Dharma Production and Netflix movie Guilty (2020).

Previously, Johar has been instrumental in launching the Bollywood careers of a host of star kids, including Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Janhvi Kapoor, and Ananya Panday.

The release date for the movie hasn’t been confirmed yet.
