Chunky Panday‘s daughter Ananya is all set to make her Bollywood debut with Karan Johar‘s Student Of The Year 2, but the girl made another debut last year at the 25th Bal des Debutantes (also known as Le Bal) in Paris. Photos of the ball have now made it to the latest edition of Vanity Fair, one of the most prestigious magazines in the United States and the world. Reese Witherspoon‘s daughter Ava Phillippe was one of the debutantes too.
Ananya was one of the few youngsters from across the globe, cherry-picked for the famed social gala that sees the next generation of ‘It’ girls making their debut in all their glamour. Her cousin Ahaan Panday, Maharaja Padmanabh Singh of Jaipur’s former royal family and his sister, Princess Gauravi Kumari were the only Indians present at the by-invitation-only ball.
According to a report on Mid-Day, Ananya was obviously over the moon to hang out with European and English royalty, for over two days for the event and magazine shoot. Besides Ava Phillippe, the other prominent names in the spread include Scotland’s Cecily Lasnet (great-granddaughter of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire), French film icon Jean-Paul Belmondo‘s grandson Giacomo Belmondo, Princess Sibilla and Prince Leopold of Luxembourg.
