Actor Shanaya Kapoor has just bought a new Audi Q7 SUV. She is the daughter of Sanjay Kapoor, who is a famous Bollywood actor. The Q7 is priced between Rs. 79.99-88.33 lakh (ex-showroom). It seems like Shanya opted for black colour so that the SUV looks subtle on Indian roads but still the colour would not be able to hide the road presence that the Q7 has.
Shanaya will be making her Bollywood debut with the upcoming movie Badhakak produced by Dharma Productions. Other actors in the upcoming movie will be Gurfateh Pirzada and Lakshya Lalwani. Badhakak is directed by Shashank Khaitan.
