Star-kids are already famous! 2018 saw Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara Ali Khan marking her entry in Bollywood with Kedarnath, followed by the mass entertainer Simmba, which went on to be one of the highest grossers of the year 2019. And then we had Chunky Panday’s daughter Ananya Panday, whose debut film Student Of The Year 2 just made it to the screens. Ever since the newbie’s name was announced, she has been trending on social media. On Tuesday, she took a trip down the memory lane and shared a picture from the day when she signed her first autograph.
The picture has her with a diary and pen while talking to a little girl. As part of her caption, she shared how at that particular moment, she was ‘way more excited’ than the fan. The picture is taken on the sets of SOTY 2, back from Ananya’s first day of the shoot as she has mentioned. It sees her donning silver and red shiny hoodie teamed with multi-coloured leggings and sneakers. At the end of her post, she has also asked her fans and followers to go watch her film.

During a recent media interaction, Ananya was asked about how she counts on the privilege of being a star-kid. She replied, “I am well aware of my privilege, I have always said it. On Koffee with Karan also I’ve said that I know I belong from a film family but for me, it’s been like my father before I was born he was this huge star and I think after I was born he took a break from doing big films. So I’ve seen a lot of ups and downs in his career and so I know well enough not to take advantage of anything and know the ups and downs of this industry.”
