In B-town, it is often believed that no friendship can stand the test of the time because of the competitiveness and most relationships are superficial. But some celebs have proved it wrong and their ‘yeh dosti, hum nahi todenge’ attitude had given major #FriendshipGoals to their fans. And the younger generation of B-town believes in less competition, no grudges and spreading more fun and love. Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan’s children, Aryan Khan and Suhana Khan’s friendship with Ananya Panday (Chunky Panday and Bhavana Pandey’s daughter) and Shanaya Kapoor (Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep Kapoor’s daughter) are exemplars of the same!

Sometime back, in a throwback video shared by Sanjay Kapoor’s wife, Maheep Kapoor, she had given the world a glimpse of how Shah Rukh Khan has always been biased towards the girls. Proving Shah Rukh’s favouritism towards girls, Maheep had captioned her video as "Yaaaa shanayaaaa it’s a goallll #Not Always biased with the girls #NoOneLikeHim." From Shah Rukh’s cute banter with son, Aryan Khan to King Khan cheering little girls, Suhana Khan, Shanaya Kapoor and Ananya Panday and helping them score a goal in the football game, we bet you can’t stop watching this video on loop and going 'awww' every time!
While Ananya Panday has already taken a step towards her journey to fame with her debut film, Student of the Year 2, the nation is waiting with bated breath to see Aryan Khan, Suhana Khan and Shanaya Kapoor shining on the silver screens. Ananya, time and again, in interviews has expressed her love for her BFFs and excitement to see them on the silver screens. Yet again, during the promotions of her film, Pati Patni Aur Woh, Ananya spilt some beans on the hidden talents of her besties, Suhana and Aryan.
According to a report in the Mid-Day, Ananya Panday was quoted as saying, “Suhana and I were in the same school together. We used to be in all the school plays and she used to be the main lead and I used to be this thing moving in the background. This is really cool because I think she is a brilliant actor. Suhana is just too talented...She is a great singer and a great dancer. A lot of big things are meant for Suhana.” Revealing special skills of Aryan Khan, Ananya continued, "Aryan has always been interested in direction, he is good in that. But very few people know that he is a brilliant writer and writes witty stuff. He’s very creative, he’s a very good writer, very witty and smart. He did Simba’s voiceover so well! So selfishly I’d like to say I hope he becomes an actor one day."
Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan’s 19-year-old princess, Suhana Khan and Chunky Panday and Bhavana Pandey’s 21-year-old angel, Ananya Panday have been BFFs since childhood. From vacationing together, partying like there’s no tomorrow, hanging out with their families to chilling out with friends, Suhana and Ananya along with Shanaya Kapoor (daughter of Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep Kapoor) refer to themselves as Charlie's Angels.

On September 19, 2019, Sanjay Kapoor’s wife, Maheep Kapoor had taken a trip down the memory lane and had decided to treat her fans with a ‘cherished’ picture depicting her long-lasting friendship with Gauri Khan and Bhavana Pandey. Sharing a picture of Charlie's Angels – Suhana Khan, Shanaya Kapoor and Ananya Panday along with their star mommies, Gauri, Maheep and Bhavana, the star-wife-cum-fashion stylist had given her post an apt caption, which could be read as “#TimeFlies”. What we couldn’t help but notice, is the uncanny resemblance between Gauri and Suhana, who had twinned in blue ensembles for the event.
Shah Rukh Khan, being quite a liberal dad, had once spoken about Suhana Khan and her interest in acting. In an interview with the DNA, Shah Rukh had stated, “I’d like her (Suhana) to be on the cover of magazines like all my heroines are, wear any kind of clothes she wants to wear and look sexy and beautiful. I want her to feel attractive, beautiful and respected, and more importantly, I want her to work hard. I have only one mandate where she’s concerned: she can act, but she has to study first.”
Shah Rukh Khan recently featured on Netflix original, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, and was asked if Aryan Khan wants to become an actor like his superstar dad. To which, the doting daddy had replied, "My son doesn’t want to act and I don’t think he can. But you know in India it's like okay if you are a movie star's son then you become a movie star. He looks nice and tall and okay...But I don’t think he has what it takes perhaps, and he realises it himself. He is a good writer."
Revealing the ‘practical and honest’ reason of Aryan Khan for why he doesn’t want to be an actor, Shah Rukh Khan had remarked, "I think wanting to become an actor has to come from within. It's something that you are wanting to do and really feel like doing and then find the set of skills and learn it. But I think I have realised it from him when he said that. He came and said that, 'I don’t think I want to act. His issue was, which I think is very practical and honest. He said, 'every time I will be compared to you. So, if I do well, it’ll not be because I got skilled at this it'll be 'oh he is his son, he will do well. It's in the genes' and then he said if I don't do well it'll always be 'my God look at him, what his father did and what is he doing?'. So, he said I don’t want to be in that position."
