Legendary actor Chunky Pandey‘s daughter has made it to Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year 2. Thrilled with the news Chunky Pandey says he already feeling like a star’s father.

He shared about his first movie and that he was very nervous. The actor had not told his parents about it until two days before my the shoot.

Chunky talked about her journey to SOTY 2: Ananya auditioned for it even before she had completed her 12th and I think she knew it quite soon that she has been cast. But you see, she is very good in her studies. She had even enrolled in University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and New York University (NYU) but since the movie was happening, we delayed her admission for a year. Now, it remains to be seen if she ever goes there.

Ananya was sure that she wanted to get into acting when she completed her 10th, but since she was a good student, she had decided that she would never neglect studies. She got to know that she maybe on SOTY 2, just two days before her 12th exam started.

He is happy about the fact that Karan Johar (Dharma) is launching Ananya — the man and production house that have looked after Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan well.

Chunky Pandey says: We couldn’t have asked for anything better. I think Ananya was born for Dharma. I remember she and my younger daughter being so happy and excited when they saw the first part of SOTY, five years ago. Little did anyone of us know that Ananya will be in SOTY 2. It’s a dream come true.

Ananya has started shooting on the same day when Aankhen released in theatres 25 years ago — April 9. They started the shoot in Dehradun.
