Not Chunky Pandey but friendship with Suhana Khan the reason behind Ananya Panday's popularity?

When Ananya Panday had dismissed claims of nepotism saying that her father, Chunky Pandey, hadn't been invited to Koffee With Karan, she wasn't exactly wrong. Chunky Pandey doesn't have a very vivid filmography, and his most popular role is that of Aakhiri Pasta in the Housefull franchise. He had a successful stint early in his career but then it faded with him mostly playing side roles. Post this, his Bollywood career didn't take off but he was offered lead projects in Bangladeshi cinema. He became instantly popular in the country with all his movies faring well. However, his work in India still weren't notable. So it makes sense to wonder how Ananya Panday became so popular even prior to her launch in Student of the Year 2.

Well, this goes years back. SRK had once revealed that he is grateful to Chunky Pandey because the latter gave him shelter during his struggling days and introduced him to industry connects in Bollywood. The two have shared great equation ever since, and their daughters are extremely close friends. Ananya Panday and Suhana Khan are often seen together with Shanaya Kapoor, and the three have been friends since childhood.

Suhana Khan has been in the spotlight due to King Khan. Is Ananya's friendship with her the reason why she was so well known amongst the audience and not because she's Chunky Pandey's daughter?
