Ananya Panday is making her big B-Town debut with ‘Student Of The Year 2′. Her dad, Chunky Panday, has been one of the most popular actors in the past two decades. However, he has always been made fun of for his frivolous attitude and hilarious outward demeanor. Promoting her film, Ananya talks about her dad at length.

Talking to IANS, Ananya spoke about the pressure she feels in order to sustain in the film industry as she hails from a film family. “I think I do, because my father has such good comic timing. So, that is something that I always hear is that, ‘Did you inherit that comedy from your father?’ My character in the film (SOTY 2) is also pretty funny and she give these one-liners, so I think the pressure is there especially in the comedy department which I will try to hopefully live up to.

Did she get any advice from daddy dearest for her debut film? “He didn’t give me any advice because he knows that his time was really different as compared to mine. So he thinks that I cannot apply the things which he applied during his acting stint. But I think I have learnt a lot from his behaviour. He never changed because of his successes and failures, so I want to be like that. I also want to take jokes in my stride the way he does. He always cracks jokes on himself. I want to grow thick skin like him.” Whoa! That’s a tough statement to make.

Now that it’s clear that Chunky didn’t advice her anything, would she take his feedback on her performance? “For me, my favourite response has to be that of my father’s because that was the one that I was looking forward to the most because he hadn’t seen anything of the film. After watching the trailer and songs, he is so excited and I think that’s the most important feedback that I needed, and I got it. So, I am feeling really happy.

‘Student Of The Year 2’ releases all over on May 10.
