Ananya Panday has recently stepped in Bollywood with Punit Malhotra's Student Of The Year 2. The movie also stars Tiger Shroff and Tara Sutaria in lead roles and Panday has received some positive responses from the audience for her role in this debut.
Even before she was an actress, Panday was quite in the news as she would hang-out with her BFFs which included Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter Suhana Khan and Sanjay Kapoor's daughter Sanaya Kapoor.
Speaking about these childhood connections, the young actress revealed that she has always liked performing and acting with her friends and never missed a chance to flaunt her skills.
To an entertainment daily she said, "Ever since I popped out of my mother, I think I wanted to be an actor. They (her friends) know that as well. When I was younger, Suhana, Shanaya and I would act in front of them and imitate my mom, Gauri aunty, and Maheep aunty. We were always ready to perform. Our parents wouldn't even need to ask us to dance at a party. They would just say D and we would start dancing."
The 20-year-old mentioned King Khan in this interview too. “We have done some really weird things. Shah Rukh sir always used to encourage us and do photoshoots with us. He would take our videos and make us feel like we are the best actors. He would show them to everyone and say, look what they did,” added the newbie.
Well, we have to say that the young girl is lucky to have had so many mentors around her to support her passion.
