He’s My Second Father: Ananya Panday Reveals How She’s A Part Of The Khan Khandaan


The Khan family portrait is picture-perfect and very much complete. Shahrukh Khan and wife Gauri Khan are parents to three beautiful kids, Aaryan, Suhana and AbRam. So, we were a little surprised when to find out that King Khan has another daughter from the film industry. A Bollywood star kid recently confessed that Shahrukh has always been like a father to her.

Ananya Pandey, Chunkey Panday’s daughter, just made her Bollywood debut with Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year 2. She has numerous friends in the industry but is extremely close to Shahrukh’s daughter, Suhana Khan. In an interview with a leading entertainment magazine, Ananya said that she has known the Khans since she was a little girl and has spent a lot of her childhood around Shahrukh. The actress further revealed that she considers SRK as her second dad.

Star kids Ananya, Suhana and Sanjay Kapoor’s daughter Shanaya have been best friends since their childhood and have always aspired to join the film industry. While Ananya is already one step closer to her dream, Suhana and Shanaya are expected to make their debuts soon.

And Shahrukh Khan was among the first people who encouraged the three friends to realise their dreams. In an interview during the promotions of Student Of The Year 2, Ananya Panday revealed that Shahrukh was one of her first mentors: “We have done some really weird things. Shahrukh sir always used to encourage us and do photo shoots with us. He would take our videos and make us feel like we are the best actors. He would show them to everyone and say, ‘Look what they did’.” Aww! Isn’t that adorable?

Recently, Ananya Panday surprised everyone as she took to her Instagram and shared a cute story. And guess who was present with the actress in her Insta story? It was her bestie Suhana Khan’s brother, AbRam, the youngest kid in the Khan family. Ananya seemed to be having a lot of fun with the little munchkin as they competed in a fun challenge of who could touch their nose with their tongue! In the video, we can see how Abram is trying his level best to copy Ananya, but ultimately loses and cutely exclaims, “Oh No!”
