Ananya Panday’s Childhood Memories

Prior to this, Ananya Panday, the actress’s daughter of Chunky Panday, disclosed that she was raised in Shah Rukh Khan’s home, a testament to the close bond between the families. In an interview with No Filter Neha, Ananya, the best friend of Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter Suhana Khan, discussed having playdates at the actor’s home.

“I think he is just the kind of person… We didn’t feel like that. He didn’t make us feel like that. I don’t think he makes anyone feel like that. He makes the person in front of him feel like the Badshah. He has this amazing quality about him. Shah Rukh sir is a very inclusive person.

Like there was this year when KKR (Kolkata Knight Riders), they won their first IPL and he was like ‘it is because of you three, you are my lucky charm, you will always be with me’. So he always makes us feel special. When we were younger, I don’t think we even realised this.”
