Shanaya Makani wants her production house, ‘Dream Catcher Productions’, to become the number one production house in the Indian film industry by making both Bollywood as well as regional movies.
She made her debut with the the bhojpuri film “Suno Sasurji” which was co-produced by her father, Iqbal Makani under the banner “Dream Catcher Productions”. The movie released on the 2nd of March 2018 and was a superhit which was loved by both, the audiences and the critics, thus becoming a Holi blockbuster.
Shanaya has attended the Utpal Shanghavi School and later completed a Fashion Management course from FAD International in Mumbai. Her degree in Fashion Management has helped her on the sets as well, as she designs most of the costumes used in her films. The costumes designed by Shanaya are attractive and perfectly match the mood and aesthetics of the scene. Shanaya is a bit of a control freak and can often be seen commanding the actors and the actresses during the shoot, so that they can align themselves in Shanaya’s vision of perfection.
Shanaya has also recently joined a few acting and dancing classes as she wishes to see herself on the big screen someday. In the meanwhile, however, Shanaya plans to use these talents to help the actors in her movies improve their acting chops and also by creating magical dance scenes in the movies produced by her.
