Bhavana Pandey has opened up about her daughter Ananya Panday’s journey in Bollywood and asserted that both she and Chunky feel proud of her. In a recent interview, the doting mom also talked about Ananya’s linkup rumours and revealed if it bothers her. Bhavana admitted initially she used to get disturbed by all such rumours but now she has accepted it as a part of her daughter’s profession. She stated that she has become 'very relaxed and content' now as Ananya has chosen this life for herself.
Speaking with Hindustan Times, the Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives actress said, “People will have both positive and negative things to say, but I have become very relaxed and content now. Ananya as well as Chunky (Pandey) have decided to put themselves in front of the camera...be out there and get judged. And they are well aware of what comes with being who they are. However, if anything is said about my younger daughter (Rysa), it would definitely affect me because she has not chosen it,” she explains, adding, “I strongly feel that good outweighs everything else. So overall, I feel much more relaxed and content now.” ALSO READ: Ananya Panday Gets BRUTALLY TROLLED For Wearing Oversized Suit; Netizens Call Her ‘Raavan, Circus Ka Joker’-See VIDEO
Bhavana went on to explain that Ananya joined the Bollywood industry when she was just 18 or 19 years old, and that’s the age when maximum learning happens. That’s the age when one makes most mistakes, learns, and grows. She has done all that while being in the public eye and she has literally grown up in front of the camera.
To note, both Bhavana and Chunky are biggest cheerleaders of Ananya and have been her pillar of strength ever since she debuted in the film industry. On the work front, Ananya was recently seen in Puri Jagannadh’s Pan India film ‘Liger’ opposite Vijay Deverakonda. However, she failed to impress the audience with her acting chops in the movie, which tanked at the box office.
