Shanaya Kapoor, the daughter of actor Sanjay Kapoor and wife Maheep Kapoor, made her debut at Le Bal Paris, the prestigious event that sees young female participants between age 16 and 22 from all over the world. It is considered to be the hottest fashion party in the world. The girls are escorted by a cavalier, a young man, who can either be someone of their choice or someone chosen by the organizers. Usually, girls rely on the organizers to choose a cavalier for them and so did Shanaya Kapoor.
Her excited father Sanjay Kapoor took Instagram to share a video as Shanaya Kapoor walked down with her cavalier. Maheep Kapoor could also be seen feeling excited and nervous as her daughter made her appearance. Shanaya Kapoor was dressed in an off-shoulder red gown and left her hair open.
Shanaya Kapoor’s first dance was with her father Sanjay Kapoor and hence all the more special.
Before the main event, Shanaya Kapoor also took some time off to roam around the beautiful city of Paris and enjoy some time off with her parents Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep Kapoor. Obviously, a picture with the Eiffel Tower was a must.
Shanaya Kapoor has not made her debut in Bollywood yet but she is working as an assistant director for the film Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. Also, Shanaya is busy taking acting and dance classes so that she is fully prepared before taking the big plunge into the films.
Le Bal Paris was first held in the Orangery of the Chateau de Versailles on July 10th, 1958. It is an invite-only event where young women from all over the world wear high-end couture and exquisite jewelry. The debutantes come from famous families in the world. Mukesh and Nita Ambani’s daughter Isha Ambani had also participated in the Bal some years ago. The event raises money for a charity that supports education for the girls in South Asia.
