Ananya is a born actor, says dad Chunky Panday

Chunky Panday’s daughter Ananya is the latest star kid to join the Bollywood bandwagon. Speculation is rife that the 19-year-old is all set to make a splash in Tinseltown with Karan Johar’s production, Student Of The Year 2.
Mumbai Mirror reports that Chunky confirmed that Ananya has been training in acting and dance for a while now, although he kept his lips sealed when asked if she would be making her debut opposite Tiger Shroff in Student Of The Year 2. “My daughter is a born actor. She wouldn’t have been born if she wasn’t an actor,” he joked.
The Housefull actor was also all praise for Tiger, who will reportedly be his daughter’s first co-star. He recently met Tiger’s father Jackie and could not stop raving about him. “I texted him (Jackie) later telling him how proud I was of Tiger who has the X factor. You can’t take your eyes off him when he’s on screen. I saw Baaghi 2 in the theatre and he hit it out of the park,” the Housefull actor said.
Ananya is the elder daughter of Chunky Panday and Bhavana Pandey. Last year, the 19-year-old made her ‘debut’ in high society at Paris’s le Bal des Debutantes. Rumour has it that she will be launched in Student Of The Year 2, which will be directed by Punit Malhotra. The film will hit the screens on November 23 this year.
