    Filmmaker Karan Johar has a history of launching star kids in Bollywood including Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Janhvi Kapoor, Ananya Panday, and Ishaan Khatter.

    Young Bollywood star Shanaya Kapoor is turning heads with a new glamorous video offering a sneak peak of her next film directed by Karan Johar.

    Johar took to Instagram to reveal that Shanaya will be joining the Dharma Cornerstone Agency (DCA) and will make her acting debut with Dharma Productions.

    Kapoor, 21, is the daughter of actors Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep Kapoor and already basking in the celebrity limelight thanks to her background. 

    While many netizens have welcomed her with open arms and are looking forward to her debut, some people on Twitter are calling her out for benefitting from nepotism.

    One user asked how much money Johar will make for giving Kapoor her debut, while another said such opportunities should be given to people with talent instead of celebrities' children. 

    Some have labelled Kapoor “privileged” and one user commented, “Talent is about how to portray yourself on-screen through various characters, not by adding surnames after your first name and showing maximum skin for photoshoot.”

    Many netizens, however, have wished her luck for her big debut, which will start filming in July.
