In yet another interview with SpotboyE, Chunky Panday had also spoken about the inside of the Panday household. Revealing if there is a deadline laid on Ananya Panday about returning home, Chunky had shared, “Bhavna (wife) tells even me I have to be home at this hour (laughs). And, that's always been the case with my both girls. But now, Ananya is grown up and will earn her money as well, so I guess it's time to let her take a few decisions.” He also shared if Ananya is advised by them about her attire, “No, she does her own stuff. I think the whole young generation of today knows what works for them and what doesn't. One has a lot to learn from them. Plus, there's lots of talent in this young breed.”

In an interview with Pinkvilla, Chunky Panday had revealed that he had gotten all emotional upon seeing daughter, Ananya Panday on the big screen for the first time. He had shared, "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."

Chunky Panday had also shared his excitement upon watching his daughter, Ananya Panday’s film, Student Of The Year 2, on the screen, "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?'"
