Daughter of Pankaj Kapur and Supriya Pathak and sister of Shahid Kapoor, Sanah Kapur has not only been the most pampered in the family, but she is also a ‘darling' in her peer group and friend circle. In fact, she discloses that how everyone has been protective about her. “I have great group of friends. My friends made sure that I am never eve-teased, so I never needed to call up my family for help. Everybody in my life has been protective about me.”
But where others would like to brag about their family or about their identity, Sanah chose to be otherwise. She never let anybody know about her parents and brother. Sanah reveals, “Actually, when I made friends they didn't know who I was. We became friends when we were really young and they didn't know because I never used to tell anybody who my parents were or who my brother was. I used to be just Sanah with them. It's only when they would come home, they would realize that I belong to the family of actors. I just had that relation with them and they are really nice people. We look out for each other and have each other's back. I had friends for many years. I think the oldest friend probably I had since I was a baby.
Ask Sanah if there was any specific reason to hide her identity and she says candidly, “I always wanted people to be part a of my life because they wanted me or they liked me and not because who my parents were or the fact that I had certain connections. So, for a long time I was apprehensive about sharing my family with people because I wanted to make people like me. And that is one of the reasons I did SHAANDAAR without letting anybody know who my parents are. Vikas (director) sir didn't know who I was when I gave my auditions; my parents didn't know I was going for the auditions. Basically, I wanted to stand out as an identity by myself. Of course, I have an amazing lineage and I am proud of my family but I also want to be Sanah Kapur by myself. That's why I always made friends without telling them who I was, where I came from.”
Well, Sanah we truly appreciate your self-esteem and we are certain that one day you will create your own mark!
