Shanaya Kapoor, daughter of actor Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep, just made her debut at le Bal in Paris and is now eagerly waiting to be launched in Bollywood as an actress.

She says if the "most amazing director" Karan Johar will ever direct her, then she will get emotional and "just die".

Karan has brought in many fresh faces to Bollywood. Some of them include Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Shanaya's cousin Janhvi Kapoor.

Asked if she would want Karan to launch her as an actress, Shanaya told IANS with excitement: "I mean, yeah! I don't think any actor would say no.

He is family. He is talented and the most amazing director. I think I would start crying if Karan ever directs me. I would get emotional and just die."

If not an acting project, the 20-year-old did get a chance to be an assistant director on the upcoming film 'Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl' backed by KJo.

"As soon as my school was done, my dad and mom were like go to LA or New York and do a course," she recalled.

But she was focussed on getting into the film industry.

"The best education you get is by being on a film set. Karan has always been there," she said.

Before entering the film world as an actor, she wanted to be an assistant director and Karan helped her.

"Karan told me 'there is this movie that Janhvi is doing," she said.

Soon after that conversation with KJo, she started going to office.

"It was a big jump from school. It was the best experience of my life. After being an assistant director, I realised how much work goes into making a film," she said.
