Chunky Panday and Bhavna Panday’s daughter Ananya Panday made her Bollywood debut with Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year 2 alongside Tiger Shroff and Tara Sutaria, last Friday. She garnered good response for her acting chops in the film but besides that the budding actress has often made headlines for her glamorous appearances with BFFs Shah Rukh Khan-Gauri Khan’s daughter Suhana Khan and Sanjay Kapoor-Maheep Kapoor’s daughter Shanaya Kapoor. Be it movies, dinner or IPL matches, Ananya, Suhana and Shanaya never failed to grab the limelight.

While SOTY 2 got mixed reviews, Ananya along with her mom Bhavna Panday appeared for a video interview with Pinkvilla, where the actress revealed that she along with her childhood buddies always loved to perform and they never missed a chance to flaunt their acting skills since the time they were babies.

Ananya told the entertainment portal, “Ever since I popped out of her, I think I wanted to be an actor. They know that as well. When I was younger, Suhana, Shanaya and I would act in front of them and imitate my mom, Gauri aunty, and Maheep aunty. We were always ready to perform. Our parents wouldn't even need to ask us to dance at a party. They would just say 'D' and we would start dancing.”

The SOTY 2 actress also spilled the beans over how Shah Rukh Khan used to encourage them as he used to do photoshoots with them and show it to others. She said, “We have done some really weird things. Shah Rukh sir always used to encourage us and do photoshoots with us. He would take our videos and make us feel like we are the best actors. He would show them to everyone and say, 'Look what they did'.”
