All of 20, Ananya Panday made her big Bollywood debut with Punit Malhotra’s Student of the year 2 co-starring Tiger Shroff and Tara Sutaria and although the film wasn’t received well by the critics but Ananya was appreciated for her acting. As we all know, Ananya is Chunky Panday’s daughter and as a father, this Housefull actor, in an interview, opened up on how he used to see Ananya come home depressed when she was wanting to make her acting debut but when he saw her in SOTY 2, he was sure that Ananya would be a good employee.

“Ananya had been part of the industry socially but to work in it is a different ballgame altogether. That said, Bhavana has brought her up well and she’s equipped to be a good employee. I’d see her return home depressed sometimes but I let her be. When I saw the film’s trail show, I was sure she would make it,” said Chunky. Furthermore, Chunky Panday opened up on dealing with a lot of pressure since he happened to be the son of doctors and as a matter of fact, he, too was expected to become a doctor. However, Chunky's passion for acting overpowered any other desire. As a result, Chunky Panday pursused his dreams and became an actor and even though he was the son of doctors, he turned out to be a wild child. When Chunky was asked if Ananya is wild as him, he said, “I was wild, my daughter is nothing compared to me.”

On the work front, post SOTY2, Ananya started shooting for the remake of Pati Patni Aur Woh co-starring Bhumi Pednekar and Kartik Aaryan. Recently, 20-year-old Ananya Panday made her fashion week debut at the Lakme Fashion Week where she walked the runway for two designers.
