New Delhi:

Ananya Panday has time and again become fodder for troll for belonging to a ‘privileged’ Bollywood family and getting her big break with Karan Johar’s Student of the Year 2. Recently netizens had their share of laughter when during an actor’s roundtable, she equated struggle to appearing in a popular celeb chat show, ‘Koffee with Karan’ and was shut down by another fellow actor, Siddhant Chaturvedi with a befitting reply. Now Ananya’s dad and actor Chunky Panday has come out in her defence lending her a piece of advice on how to not be trolled on social media.

In an interview with Mumbai Mirror Chunky said that he has asked Ananya to no longer take his name. “The two times she really got trolled was when she called me Tony Stark and the second was this episode. I want to tell her to stop taking my name,” he confesses.

On enquiring about Ananya’s relationship status the Housefull actor said it is normal of her to have a boyfriend at this age. “She’s 21, it would be abnormal if she didn’t have a boyfriend,” he reasons, adding, “I have been through this in my time, so I know how much of it is true. You’re ready for these things as an insider,” he signs off.

Ananya has been linked to her co-star from Pati Patni Aur Woh, Kartik Aaryan after she openly confessed her admiration for the actor on Karan Johar’s chat show and then got to know each other better in the sets of their last release. 

Ananya will be next seen in Ishaan Khattar starrer Khaali Peeli as the female lead and Shakun Batra’a upcoming with Siddhant and Deepika Padukone, Chunky will co-star Saif Ali Khan in Jawaani Jaaneman. 


Chunky will share screen space with Pooja Bedi’s daughter Alaya Furniturewala. “I see Pooja’s lovely eyes in Alaya. She is a fabulous actor and it felt like I had my own daughter on the set. She is like a package of fire,” he beams.
