Ananya Panday aka Chunky Panday’s daughter who recently made her Bollywood debut alongside Tiger Shroff and Tara Sutaria (also a debutant) in Student Of The Year 2, revealed that she could have achieved this feat 9 years back in a Shah Rukh Khan film and that too with her bestie and SRK’s daughter Suhana Khan.
Karan Johar, who was the producer of SOTY 2, was the only person who was to launch Ananya and Suhana in the 2009 Bollywood release My Name Is Khan. Ananya shared this fact with ETimes and also mentioned that how both of them were excited to just walk by on the movie sets.
Her words in exact were,
“I actually remember the time when I went on a set with Suhana when Shah Rukh sir was shooting for ‘My Name is Khan’. Suhana and I went to visit him on set when he was in America. They were shooting some scene, and Karan (Johar) needed some people to walk around in the background. So, he asked to just walk around and we were like 12 or something and we got so excited. I wore this pink jacket and I was so excited. They took some 7-8 takes and in every take both of us did this like walking and overacting. When we watched the film and we were waiting for our scene to come which is when we realized that it was cut from the movie. We were so upset but that’s one memory I have from my sets.”
When it comes to this girl group, they are more often joined by Shanaya Kapoor, cousin of Jahnvi and Sonam Kapoor, also star kids. This friendship dates back to their childhood. Ananya seems totally energised when the concept of sharing the frame with besties comes in front. Would you like to see them in a movie together?
