SOTY2: CHUNKY PANDEY ON ANANYA PANDEY’S DEBUT
Student Of The Year 2 starring Tiger Shroff and debutante Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria has now gone on floors. Karan Johar who is producing the film shared the first look of the cast and since then it has been the talk of the town.
Ananya Panday, Chunky Pandey’s daughter, is seen in a girl-next-door avatar for her first movie. A leading daily interacted with Chunky Pandey to know his reaction on Ananya debut in Bollywood. Chunky said that he is feeling ecstatic about this and tears of joy seeing the posters.
He said, “I feel like standing on the roof and shouting. I am so excited,” and added, “This is something which was in the pipeline for almost a year and it pretty much reminds me of the time when I got into films myself. When I had signed my first film, I had not even told my family about it. In fact, I remember just two days before the muharat my parents found out that I am doing a film. But with her, it has been different, the way her debut movie has got announced. I had tears in
When he was asked about the advice he has given to Ananya since he has been a part of this industry for long, he said; “Well, I only keep telling her that you should not try and imitate anyone. You have to write your own story, your own graph and rhythm. She is quite ready for that. In real life, she is a very good student. She has got a scholarship in America too but we have deferred the admissions by a year because she got the movie. So, let’s hope the real life student becomes a good reel life student.”
Chunky feels his daughter was born to be a part of SOTY2, as he said; “The little I can tell about my girl is that she was born to do Student of the Year because when the original came both my girls loved the movie so much,” he recalled adding, “They were crazy about Varun, Sid and Alia and were going on and on about it. Finally the elder one is doing part 2, it is too surreal. She couldn’t have asked anything better than this. She went and auditioned for it and when she got confirmed, her excitement was next level.”
When Chunky was asked if Ananya is feeling the pressure of being a star kid, he said; “I had a lot of pressure too as both my parents were doctors and everyone wanted me to be a doctor. But, we overcome it usually. I think she has chosen what’s right for her and I am sure she will do a good job. I mean obviously right now she is known as my daughter but I am sure that by the end of this year I will be known as her father. “
