Akansha Ranjan Kapoor says playing Neena Gupta’s daughter was “incredibly emotional”; lauds Jackie Shroff

Actor Akansha Ranjan Kapoor, known for her remarkable performances in films like Guilty, Ray, and Monica Oh My Darling, recently appeared in Jasleen Royal’s latest music video, ‘Dastoor.’ The song features Babil Khan, and Jasleen Royal alongside Jackie Shroff and Neena Gupta, with Akansha Ranjan Kapoor adding her enchanting presence to the ensemble.

The music video depicts the love story of a couple (played by Jasleen Royal and Babil Khan), constrained by society and leading to their separation. Yet, it reunites them later in life (played by Neena Gupta and Jackie Shroff) as they come together in marriage, surrounded by loved ones. Akansha Ranjan Kapoor notably portrays Neena Gupta’s daughter, exuding charm in her elegant Indian attire embellished with a pink suit and exquisite jewellery.

Talking about the song and her collaboration with Jasleen Royal, Akansha Ranjan Kapoor shared, ” I filmed this song with Neena Ma’am, Jackie Sir, and Jasleen. It was a delightful one-day Madh Island shoot filled with joy. By the end of it, everyone was humming and swaying to the song, enveloped in positive vibes. Witnessing the touching moment between Neena Aunty and Jackie Sir, where he gently applied kajal to her eyes, moved everyone to tears—it was a truly beautiful moment. Jasleen was fantastic throughout, displaying kindness, motivation, and a keen eye for the scenes. It was just a day of shooting but brimming with fun and positivity.”

Regarding her experience working alongside Jackie Shroff and Neena Gupta, Akansha expressed, “Jackie Sir brought laughter to the set; his playful antics, like appearing with a plant and cracking jokes, brought smiles to everyone. Having grown up in the presence of Neena Aunty, portraying her daughter was incredibly emotional, especially when I discovered I would play her daughter. She holds a special place in my heart and has been a dear figure in my life.”

On the work front, Akansha Ranjan Kapoor is all set to make her debut in the Telugu industry with CV Kumar’s highly anticipated directorial MaayaOne opposite Sundeep Kishan.
