While most star kids skip over the conversation about nepotism, 'SOTY2' actress Ananya Panday is happy to be known as Chunky Panday's daughter.
"He has worked very hard; I am proud of being his daughter," she says, adding that she has learned a lot from her father's journey. "My dad was a star before I was born and he took a break, so I saw the way he dealt with all his ups and downs. I have seen him taking life in his own stride very normally; he has done things in a very light-hearted manner. He always kept a positive attitude. He never gave up and that is very inspiring for all of us family members," she shares.
In the meantime, Ananya is pleased with how her career is shaping up. She muses: "I am happy with the response I am getting, especially with kids. When I was 10-years-old, I loved Kareena Kapoor, and as I grew up I started admiring Alia Bhatt. I love being an inspiration for young girls." And although she has gained popularity, the actress feels that stardom is far away. "I am young now, and I want the audience to grow with me watching my films.
However, I think that supers-tardom is far away, but I hope I achieve it someday. I want to have a loyal fan base," she says. The actress plays the 'other woman' in her next film 'Pati Patni Aur Who', but she says that she does not condone extra-marital affairs in real life. "On a personal level, I wouldn't accept it nor I would tolerate it or be a part of it," she asserts.
