Here are 5 things you didn’t know about Ananya Pandey.

She’s the daughter of Chunk Pandey

Acting runs in Ananya Pandey’s blood. Her dad is the popular Bollywood actor Suyash “Chuncky” Pandey. Chunky has starred in over 80 films over the span of his 3 decade career. He started acting in 1987 and played the lead hero in movies through 1992. His acting career took a bit of a slump for a few years, but Chunky made a beloved comeback in 1995 when he began taking roles as a character actor for Bangladesh Cinema. Chunky remains an iconic figure in Indian cinema. He married Ananya’s mother, Bhavna, in 1998. In addition to film, the couple own a stage show in Mumbai, India. Ananya has a younger sister, Rysa.

She’s been photographed a lot

As the daughter of a popular Indian actor, Ananya Pandey is no stranger to movie and pop culture fans. She has been photographed a lot with her family and on her own throughout her busy teenage life. The public was formally introduced to Ananya Pandey last November. She was introduced to “high society” as a debutant at La Bal in Paris. Ananya is almost like a Kardashian, but she is proving to be more than just a publicity diva. Ananya has proven her talent as an actress and soon the world will be able to see that talent in “Student of the Year 2”. Since the announcement of “Student of the Year 2”, Ananya’s Instagram account has gained 98,000 followers.

She has famous friends

Having a famous father means connections with famous friends. Ananya Pandey has been seen out and about with her best friends Suhana Khan and Shanaya Kapoor. Suhana is the daughter of actor, producer and television personality, Shah Rukh Khan. Shanaya is the daughter of actor and producer, Sanjay Kapoor, who hails from a family of popular Indian actors.

She’s still in school

At 19 years old, Ananya is excited to start her acting career but is also finishing college. She attended Dhirubhai Ambani International School in Mumbai and attends the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. She splits her time between her hometown of Mumbai and Los Angeles. Her favorite foods are chocolate and pizza. She loves to travel. Her favorite destinations are Las Vegas, New York City and London.

She was born to act

Her father, Chunky, has said that Ananya was born to act. She was born in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India on March 29, 1999, and even as a young girl, was drawn to acting. Of course, with a father who is a famous actor and the fact that her parents own a stage company, it’s not surprising that Ananya would be drawn into that world. Ananya’s favorite actors include Deepika Paduone, Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone and Emma Watson. She counts “Titanic”, “The Notebook”, “Two States” and, of course, “Student of the Year” as her favorite movies. Ananya enjoys watching American television shows including “Castle”, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”, and “The Big Bang Theory”. Her favorite musicians include Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Drake, Zayn, Eminem and Michael Jackson.
