On Wednesday, the ace filmmaker, Karan Johar unveiled the first look of the cast of his much awaited film, Student Of The Year 2 (SOTY 2) and left everyone stunned. While we were already expecting Tiger Shroff to be one of the leads, but what came as a surprise package were the new faces, Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria.
The first look of the stunning ladies is quite convincing and we feel already hooked towards the film.
Earlier in 2012 too, Karan introduced three new faces (Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra) to the Bollywood industry and proved that his choice was right. And now yet again, he is ready to introduce some extremely talented and charming faces to the industry.
If we go by the poster, it can be recollected that Chunky Panday’s daughter, Ananya Pandey will be seen playing the role of a girl-next door in the film. Well, we already have our hopes held high and so does Ananya’s father, Chunky.
Recently, in an interview with a leading web portal, Chunky expressed his happiness over Ananya Panday’s Debut.
When the actor was asked how he was feeling about her daughter making it into the cast of Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year 2, he said, “I am already feeling like a star’s father. I am so excited.”
Sharing the details of how it all happened, Chunky said, “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 (laughs).
Actually, she was quite clear that she wants 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. I think she got to know that she maybe on SOTY 2, just 2 days before her 12th exam started.”
He also told how he never knew that she had gone for a screen test for SOTY 2 and that he got to know about the same later.
On being asked how he felt about the fact that Karan Johar was launching her daughter, the actor expressed, “We couldn’t have asked for anything better. I think Ananya was born for Dharma. I remember she and my younger daughter getting so happy and excited when they saw the first part of SOTY, 5 years ago. Little did anyone of us know that Ananya will be in SOTY 2. It’s a dream come true.”
On the work front, Chunky is currently busy prepping up for a Marathi film in Paltan. Other than that the actor will also be seen in a Telugu film with Prabhas Sahoo.
