Ananya is soon going to turn her dreams into reality as she is all set with her debut film, Student Of The Year 2 produced by Karan Johar. While she is busy promoting her film, her daddy Chunkey Panday cannot keep calm and it can clearly be seen in his interview with Pinkvilla. He had shared his level of excitement, and had stated, “I am over the moon. I have never been on her set, seen her shooting and never seen any rushes of the film. All she had shown me were the stills from the movie. When I saw the trailer, heard her voice on-screen, I was too emotional. I just flash-backed to the start of my career. It was better than I expected. I am surprised the way she comes across on screen, maybe she is camera-friendly. I could not imagine her like this on-screen. It came to me as a pleasant surprise and a shock.”

At a young age of just 20, Ananya has managed to not only grab a big production film but directors have lined outside her house to sign her in their upcoming projects. However, the actress is not coy about her life choices and what she wants from it. Recently, in an interview with the Bombay Times, Ananya opened up about her crush Kartik Aaryan, and shared, “I’m 20 and it’s normal to have a crush on someone. I’m open about my feelings. Yes, I find Kartik cute and I’m lucky I’ve got a chance to work with him.” (Also Read: Sussanne Khan Says She Has A Support System In Ex-Husband, Hrithik Roshan, Calls It 'Sacred')

Well, Ananya has always acknowledged the privileges she has being a star kid, and stated, “That’s half the battle won. If you’re not talented, people won’t invest in you. Period. But at the same time, I don’t want to be silly and give up an opportunity like this because people are bashing me for being someone’s daughter. If they don’t like me in the film, I’ll accept that, but at least watch the film.”

She also talked about her co-star Tiger Shroff, and said, “Many say Tiger is shy but around me he never was. I met him when I was 16, his first film Heropanti had just released. Mom sent me across to ask him for advice. As I walked in, I saw him execute the perfect full split. He then went on to tell me that if I wanted to be an actress, I couldn’t eat ice cream anymore and I’d have to wake up at 4 am to train. It was scary!”

In an interview, Ananya’s father, Chunkey Panday had shared his level of excitement, “I have never been excited and I'm waiting to go to the theatre and watch it on screen. The first time I saw my film, I didn't like it that much. I found it odd because you see yourself every day in the mirror and suddenly you see yourself on screen and you are like, 'Oh my god, Is this me?' But with Ananya, I just felt the other way. Maybe the way they presented her, the makeup, the clothes. But for a second I said, 'Is that my daughter?'” (Don't Miss: Arjun Rampal And Ex-Wife, Mehr Jesia Begin Monetary Settlement Soon After Gabriella's Pregnancy?)
