It was only recently that the Omicron variant of the Coronavirus started giving people a scare, and rightly so since its impact has started showing, at least on the entertainment world, if it’s right to say so.

Recently, after Maheep Kapoor, wife of actor Sanjay Kapoor got infected with the virus, the corona test of his daughter Shanaya Kapoor has also come positive.

And now reports suggest that the shooting of Shanaya’s debut film has been postponed due to COVID.

According to a report in Pinkvilla, the shooting of her debut film has been postponed after Shanaya turned corona positive.

A source said, “Shanaya, along with her two leads, Lakshya Lalwani and Gurfateh Pirzada were all set to fly off to Bangkok to kick off this rom com. All plans have been put on hold after the actress tested positive for the Covid-19 virus recently and the film will now go on the floors at the same location in the month of January. Shanaya is currently in the quarantine and the team is in no rush to shoot the film.”

According to the news, preparations for this marathon shoot were to start in Bangkok. “A team was in Bangkok prepping to ensure a smooth shoot, whereas another team was expected to fly this week with Shanaya, Lakshya, and Gurfateh. With the unprecedented scenario, everyone will be back to Mumbai this week and take off next year once everyone is in the pink of their health,” the source added.

Shanaya took to Instagram to share information about her being down with COVID.

She wrote in her Instagram story, ‘I have been found corona positive. I have mild symptoms and feel fine. I have isolated myself. My report came negative in the test done four days ago. When the test was done again as a precaution, the report came positive. I am following the protocol suggested by the doctor.

Apart from Shanaya, Gurfateh will also be seen in the lead role. Karan Johar is also going to launch Lakshya along with Shanaya in this film.

The shooting of the film was to begin in July. At that time also the project of the film was delayed due to the second wave of Corona.

The story of the film will be based on an urban love triangle. Recently there were reports that the title of the film has been kept as ‘Dono Mile Iss Tarah’.

Before making her debut in films, Shanaya worked as an assistant director in Jhanvi Kapoor’s film ‘Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl’.

Earlier, Shanaya’s special appearance was seen in Maheep’s Netflix series ‘Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives’.

Shanaya’s father Sanjay had said that his daughter Shanaya is all set to debut in Bollywood films and that she is only waiting for a good project.
