Chunky Panday's 18-year-old daughter Ananya is already a darling of the press. The young girl recently made her society debut at Paris at le Bal and now she seems to be gearing up for her big Bollywood debut.
If reports in Deccan Chronicle are anything to go by, Ananya is being considered for the female lead in Karan Johar's Student Of The Year 2. The film already has announced the first look with its leading man Tiger Shroff and the hunt for the leading lady is still on.

KJo as the producer has loved Ananya's audition tape. Saif Ali Khan's daughter Sara and Sridevi's daughter Janhvi were also in the running for the same role- but reports suggest that KJo has narrowed down to Ananya.
"Saif and Amrita's daughter Sara and Sridevi and Boney Kapoor's daughter Jhanvi were also considered for the same film. But the idea was dropped," Deccan Chronicle quoted the source as saying. "Chunky Pandey's daughter Ananya has now been chosen," the source told Deccan Chronicle.
There has been no confirmation from Dharma Productions yet on the news. Student Of The Year 2 is being directed by Punit Malhotra.
