Time and again, we hear about couples in the Tinseltown who are getting hitched, after years of dating each other. And many a time, there are preferences when it comes to your partners. For instance, Sanjay Kapoor has hots for tall girls, and that's why when he first laid his eyes on his now-wife, Maheep Sandhu, he instantly fell in love. Maheep Kapoor was an NRI of Punjabi origin and a famous jewellery designer. She had been living in Australia before she came to India to try her luck in Bollywood.

Sanjay Kapoor got married to Maheep Sandhu in 1997 and she then became, Maheep Kapoor. On November 03, 1999, their first baby, Shanaya Kapoor was born and then on May 26, 2005, their second child- Jahaan Kapoor arrived! Sanjay and Maheep couldn't have been happier as the family got completed when Jahaan was born.
Jahaan Kapoor's mommy and Sanjay Kapoor's wife, Maheep Kapoor took to her Instagram handle today (May 16, 2019) to share a throwback pic of Shanaya and Jahaan from their childhood, announcing the latter's birthday month. Sharing the following picture, Maheep captioned it as, " @jahaankapoor26 turning 14 soon 26/05/05 #CountDown #BirthdayMonth."

Maheep Kapoor keeps regularly sharing pictures from her family. Recently, she had shared another throwback picture from her first pregnancy when Shanaya Kapoor was in her womb. Mommy Maheep had beautifully captioned the following photos as, "About to give birth to my firstborn #MyBiggestBlessings #BeingAMom Happy Mothers Day Everyone @shanayakapoor02 @jahaankapoor26."
Shanaya Kapoor, reportedly, will make her Bollywood debut in The Zoya Factor. However recently, when her father Sanjay Kapoor was asked about his daughter’s debut, he was quoted as saying, “Honestly, I really don’t know when that will happen. She has just finished her 12th standard and she’s working towards it. But she hasn’t signed anything till now; she’s too young. Hopefully, soon enough."
Sanjay Kapoor had also told an online tabloid then that he feels very protected about Shanaya and had added, “I do feel protective about her. She has a private account on Instagram. But few things are beyond our control. She’s a young girl who will go out for movies or to restaurants. We’re not going to lock her up in the house just because a photograph will get clicked."

It must be noted here that Shanaya Kapoor and Student of the Year 2 actress, Ananya Panday are very close to each other.

We've grown up dreaming together, wishing together, working together, and today your journey has started."
