Kaveri Kapur grandparents

An interesting thing that fans want to know about this girl is her grandparents. Though a lot of people know her Bollywood parents as well as their surrounding scandals, they hardly have an idea of Kaveri Kapur grandparents.

Contrary to many people’s belief, Kaveri Kapur grandparents were not Bollywood figures. Shekhar Kapur’s father was a reputed doctor named Kulbhushan Kapur while his mother was Sheel Kanta Kapur who was a housewife. There was an intriguing story about Kaveri Kapur’s grandparents, shared by Shekhar Kapur.

Kaveri Kapur songs

Kaveri Shekhar Kapur had her debut in 2016 with the love song Did You Know when she was only 15 years old. The girl then continued to release her second track named Half A Heart in December of the same year.

What made Kaveri Kapur first songs a centre of attention at that time was her ability to write and sing these songs on her own. The production team also shared that Kaveri already wrote and composed songs since the age of 11, four years before her first release.

The girl wasn't shy but natural on her first days of the entertainment career.

One year after her first single, Kaveri Kapur brought out another Pop song called Again in August, 2017. The young girl still pursued her natural style and simple music video, featuring herself singing the song in different settings without a complex plot.

The turning point in Kaveri’s career is her latest music video which came out on February 6, 2020. Unlike previous Kavery Kapur songs, this time the singer recorded the entire story to illustrate for her music. More specifically, Kaveri Kapur Smell Of The Rain music video was directed by her world-famous father Shekhar Kapur, telling the inner fight with demons inside every person. The singer-songwriter also expressed her maturity in front of the camera but not losing her natural innocent look.

Talking about the experience of working with Kaveri in Smell Of The Rain music video, Shekhar Kapur said that he was inspired by her vision for the song. Despite her young age, Kaveri mentioned the matter of accepting human dark side instead of running away. Shekhar felt it’s senseless when kids could only write about ‘teeny bopper love.’ The producer also encouraged all parents should let go of their children so the young could search and follow their own destiny, like what he did to his beloved daughter, Kaveri Shekhar Kapur.

Though Kaveri Kapur songs haven’t reached an impressive number of views as some other young stars, her Youtube channel has already gathered more than 16.1 thousand subscribers after only 4 tracks in total.

With Kaveri Kapur Berklee music education, her inborn talent and whole-hearted support from her parents, we believe Kaveri Kapur songs would soon gain wide recognition across the country.
