Kaveri Kapur, now 15, hopes her voice and her songs will be
what get people talking, rather than her famous parents. Her
father is Shekhar Kapur, who made the Oscar-winning 1998 film
"Elizabeth". Her mother is singer and actress Suchitra
"Something thatís always been in the back of my mind is that I
hope people are showing this appreciation because they like my
music and not because of who my parents are," she told Reuters
in one of her first television interviews.
"I feel like itís going to be harder to prove that youíre
actually talented and that you deserve this as much when you
have parents who make it easier for you, who give you more
opportunities than lots of other kids."
Her hit love song "Did You Know" was launched on YouTube in June
and quickly made it into the Indian top 10.
Kaveriís father expressed his pride in his daughter's work.
"Some of those compositions, theyíre like world-class
compositions. Honestly, if she wasnít my daughter, I might have
used those compositions, stolen them, and used them in a movie,"
Shekhar Kapur said.
