Ananya on becoming an actor
The 23-year-old actress revealed that it was Hrithik Roshan and some Dharma films that motivated her to become an actress. During the interview, Ananya said, “Films have always been my escape. And no, it wasn’t because my dad (Chunky Panday) is a Bollywood star. My face lit up when a movie came on at home. I was tiny when Hrithik Roshan burst onto the screen in Kaho Naa…Pyaar Hai. I fangirled just a little too hard. Hrithik, and a host of other Dharma films, gave me the kick-start I needed to put my plan of becoming an actor in action.” She also told that it was her parents Chunky Panday and Bhavana Pandey who suggested she meet Karan Johar to figure out what she wanted to do. Ananya concluded by saying, “Karan sir asked me to audition for Student of the Year 2 and I was over the moon when I landed the part.”
