Bhavana Panday & Chunky Panday‘s daughter, Ananya Panday is about to make her big, Bollywood debut with Student Of the Year 2, releasing next Friday. The star kid was already quite popular on social media, with multiple fan pages dedicated to her. Top it off with a Dharma Productions’ debut and one can imagine Ananya’s stress levels.
At a recent media interaction, the actor was asked if she feels the pressure considering she is from a film family. She told IANS:
I think I do, because my father has such good comic timing. So something that I always hear is that, “Did you inherit that comedy from your father?”
She also revealed that Chunky didn’t give her any advice before joining Bollywood. However, she does want to grow thick skin like her father and be able to take jokes in her stride.
He didn’t give me any advice because he knows that his time was really different as compared to mine. So he thinks that I cannot apply the things which he applied during his acting stint. But I think I have learnt a lot from his behaviour. He never changed because of his successes and failures, so I want to be like that. I also want to take jokes in my stride the way he does. He always cracks jokes on himself. I want to grow thick skin like him.
That’s a pretty solid thing to learn before a career in Bollywood. Isn’t it?!
