Shahid Kapoor’s half sister Sanah bags a romcom

Bollywood heartthrob Shahid Kapoor’s half-sister Sanah Kapoor, who was launched by Vikas Bahl in the 2016 film Shaandaar, will be next seen in director Abhishek Saxena’s new film, titled Saroj Ka Rishta.

The film talks about the grave issue of body-shaming in India. In addition to that, it will also be a story about a daughter’s relationship with her father. Sanah will play the title role of Saroj in the movie.

“As a fat person, I have noticed that body-shaming doesn’t happen only with those who are on the heavier side, but also with thin people. The idea germinated from there. The film essentially revolves around a father-daughter relationship with Kumud Mishra and Sanah at the centre. There is also a love triangle with the two heroes Gaurav Pandey and Randeep Rai,” the film’s director said.

Sana said that her character in the movie offers great scope for exploration. “I am looking forward to mould (ing)  myself into someone who is from a completely different culture. It’s mysterious and offers great scope for exploration,” she explains.

Saroj Ka Rishta begins production in August. The film will be shot in Ghaziabad, Mawana and Mumbai.
