Seeing your close friends choose the same profession as yours is a huge deal that brings joy to you irrespective of the field of profession. So is the case of Ananya Panday, who recently won hearts with her debut in Karan Johar’s ‘Student Of The Year 2’ along with Tara Sutaria and popular actor Tiger Shroff.

In her recent interaction with Hindustan Times, Ananya expresses her excitement on witnessing her childhood best friends Shanaya Kapoor, daughter of Sanjay Kapoor blessed with the popular “Kapoor” name; and princess Suhana Khan whose father is Shah Rukh Khan popularly known as ‘King Khan of Bollywood’. On being asked for some tips for her best friends, Ananya replied that both of them are great actors and it was them who provided her with a few anecdotes when she was in need.

The ‘SOTY 2’ fame said, “They don’t need tips from me. Instead, I need tips from them. They both are such wonderful actors. We have grown up in the industry and would always discuss films. We used to watch a lot of films whenever we got together. So, I’m really looking forward to their debut in Bollywood.”  On the question of her post debut reactions, she said “People have been congratulating me personally – Shah Rukh sir called me, so did Zoya Akhtar and Siddharth Roy Kapur. These are people I have really looked up to and am dying to work with.”


Currently, Ananya is looking forward to her upcoming project, Muddassar Aziz’s directorial ‘Pati Patni Aur Who’ along with Kartik Aaryan and Bhumi Pednekar; which is scheduled to hit theatres on 6th of December this year.
