Chunky Pandey feels to be super proud father toward her daughter Ananya Pandey. As she make her debut with upcoming film Student of the year 2 nicely. 20-year-old Ananya Panday is soon going to make her big Bollywood debut under the mentorship of Karan Johar produced, Student Of The Year 2, opposite debutante, Tara Sutaria and already a superstar, Tiger Shroff. The film’s trailer was launched yesterday and we all totally swooned over the dapper attitude of Ananya in the film. However, apart from us, there is someone who is beaming with happiness and pride over this gorgeous starlet’s big-screen debut. Any idea as to whom we are talking about? It is Ananya Panday’s star father, Chunky Panday.
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Chunky Panday revealed that he got all emotional upon seeing daughter, Ananya Panday on the big screen for the first time. He 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 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?'"
