    Khushi Kapoor ready for big Bollywood debut, father Boney says she will be launched by someone he respects


    The producer said there will soon be an announcement about her debut.

    Boney Kapoor said that daughter Khushi was keen on acting.
    Film-maker Boney Kapoor and the late Sridevi's younger daughter Khushi Kapoor is all set to follow in her mother and sister Janhvi's footsteps and will soon be making her debut in the film industry.

    The 'Mr. India' maker, in an interview to Bombay Times, revealed that there would soon be an announcement regarding the debut of his 20-year-old daughter. He, however, added that he would not be launching her, rather it will be "someone I respect and someone I feel secure and safe about.”

    Explaining the reason behind his decision to not launch Khushi, Kapoor said, "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 film-maker 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.”

    The 65-year-old producer had backed the 1995-film 'Prem' that saw his younger brother Sanjay make his foray into the film industry.

    However, Kapoor's son Arjun made his debut with Yash Raj Films, and daughter Janhvi's debut film 'Dhadak' was backed by Karan Johar.

    Stars on the horizon

    The year 2020 was a bust in many ways. The pandemic forced us to stay at home, mostly, and deprived us of a normal life. But when we had nothing and nowhere to go, we still had art and entertainment to seek comfort in. The world turned to OTT (Over The Top content) as it went online. Movies, shows, music and more were available online and that kept our entertainment quotient, and somewhere also our sanity, in check. Now as we enter 2021 with more caution (and a mask!), Bollywood is ready to welcome us with a list of promising newcomers who will most likely make their big-screen debut this year.

    By the way, here's a fun fact: did you know that Indian cinema is the world's largest film industry when it comes to production?! The industry releases over 1,000 films a year, averaging between three and five new releases every week. And with that, many new faces make their debut on the silver screen with fervent hope and prayers to make it big in tinsel town.

    In this year of the ‘new normal’, and new beginnings, let’s take a look at the new stars on the horizon.
