The Kapoors have been one of Bollywood's most famous families for years. Now, Shashi Kapoor's grandson Zahan is all set to make his film debut with Hansal Mehta's upcoming crime thriller.

Speaking about the actor, Hansal Mehta said in a statement, "Both Zahaan and Aditya have been selected on the basis of their talent and potential. The characters they play are very intricate and I’m sure the audience will love them too.”

Paresh Rawal's son Aditya Rawal will also share the screen with Zahan in the upcoming film.

Zahan is Kunal Kapoor and filmmaker Ramesh Sippy's daughter Sheena's son. He also has a sister named Shaira Laura Kapoor. He often posts throwback pictures with his family.

Before stepping into films, Zahan was a thespian. He shared several pictures from his time on stage, especially performing the play Pitaji Please, created by Makarand Deshpande. The play was his foray into Hindi theatre and he shared the stage with theatre legend Swanand Kirkire as well.

The latest Kapoor sibling is not just an actor, he also aces in polo. He won the ARC Challenge Cop in 2018 as part of Team Benaz Corp.

Zahan is also cousin to Kareena Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor. He was usually spotted in pictures from family hangs and birthday parties, on fan club pages.

Naturally, Zahan also seems to share a very close bond with Kareena's older son Taimur, and it's adorable!
