Actress Ananya Pandey, who debuted in Bollywood with producer Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year 2’, says that even though her life has changed after the movie, she tries to “behave like a normal teenager”.
“Life has definitely changed after I did ‘Student of the Year 2’. Now, people recognise me more. It feels you have now earned a name. But I try to behave as much normal as I can. I try to be a normal teenager which I am. I hang out with my friends and my family. I try to do as many normal things as I can,” said the 20-year-old actress.
Pandey, daughter of popular comic actor Chunky Pandey, says she was lucky to be born in the family of an actor as it made her journey in Bollywood much easier. She, however, believes that though being a star kid made her entry into films easy, nobody will invest in someone who is not worthy of it.
“My journey into Bollywood has been very exciting, I feel blessed and lucky. Everyone has their own journey and I have always wanted to do this and when you are born in an actor’s family you get to meet people at a very early age. Getting into a room with Karan was easier, but what you do inside the room solely depends on you. I don’t think people would put money into someone whom they don’t believe in,” said Pandey.
The actress, who will next be seen opposite actor Kartik Aryan in ‘Pati, Patni Aur Woh’, also wants to share the screen with her father.
“I am waiting for somebody to offer a film where I can share the screen with my dad. I hope someone offers us a film together. It will be too much fun. If someone is listening, please make something happen” said Pandey.
A remake of the 1978 film ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’, the new version will see Aaryan play the husband, a role which was earlier essayed by Sanjeev Kumar. Bhumi Pednekar will enact the wife’s character played by Vidya Sinha. Directed by Mudassar Aziz, the remake also stars Pandey as the other woman, which was originally played by Ranjeeta.
