Over the last 25 years, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has taken many young talents under his wing. Right from actors to aspiring filmmakers and even singers and musicians, Bhansali has launched and nurtured some of the finest talents. Now, if reports are to be believed, Asha Bhosle's desire is to see her granddaughter Zanai Bhosle shine on the big screen under the maverick filmmaker's direction.
As per an entertainment portal's report, the veteran singer wants Zanai, the daughter of Anand Bhosle, to be launched as a leading lady in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali masterpiece. According to a source, Asha Bhosle is said to be in constant touch with Bhansali. "Ashaji also came visiting Sanjay and his mother with Zanai. She brought a gift for SLB’s mom knowing fully well that the way to his heart is through his mother. She now calls him up regularly for long chats on songs and music," the source told.
Zanai, 19, is a trained professional singer and has a few songs on YouTube to her merit. She has also performed on stage with her grandmother. However, she hasn't ventured into mainstream Bollywood.
Of late, Zanai has been sharing videos of her dance performances on Instagram. Reportedly, Zanai has learnt the basics of acting by Shabana Azmi.
Zanai's extended family has a bunch of actors. Her relatives like Padmini Kolhapure, Tejaswini Kolhapure, Shraddha Kapoor, Siddhanth Kapoor and Priyaank Sharma are actors.
