Karan Johar is set to launch another star-kid – Shanaya Kapoor who is the daughter of Sanjay and Maheep Kapoor. However, this has reignited the nepotism debate with several people slamming the move.
It was just this morning that Shanaya Kapoor took to her Instagram account sharing the news. She posted a glamorous video of herself and mentioned that she will kickstart shooting for her first film in July which will be produced by Karan’s Dharma Productions. However, in just a few hours, a number of people comment on Shanaya’s post raising nepotism. One user commented, ”Karan Johar has once again proved that nepo kids can live better”. Another user wrote, ”With absolutely no work put in, another one added to the list”.

Welcome to the #DCASquad, @shanayakapoor! It’s going to be an unforgettable and exciting journey that begins with your first film with @DharmaMovies, this July,” he added in another tweet and shared some stunning pictures of the diva.
With this, Shanaya – the daughter of Sanjay and Maheep Kapoor – has joined Dharma Cornerstone Agency as their new talent, along with the previously announced Triptii Dimri, Gurfateh Pirzada, Dhairya Karwa, and Lakshya Lalwani.
For the unversed, Karan, in association with Cornerstone Agency, recently launched a collaborative space DCA to promote ‘budding talent’.
However, his recent announcement has once again sparked the nepotism debate on social media as Shanaya is producer Boney Kapoor and veteran actor Anil Kapoor’s niece, and first cousin of actors Sonam Kapoor, Harshvardhan Kapoor, and Janhvi Kapoor.
Reacting to the tweet, several users took to the micro-blogging site to call out the filmmaker and some even trolled Shanaya Kapoor.
A user wrote, “So easy for star kids with decent looks to become actors man.”
“Critical case of nepotism,” declared another.
