'Ananya's focus is on films now'
New Delhi: "Ananya is a great student, but right now her focus is on films," says actor Chunky Panday of his daughter Ananya Panday, who has just made her Bollywood debut with the film Student of the Year 2.
Apart from her acting stint, Ananya recently got talked about when some girls who claimed to be Ananya's schoolmates, shared on social media that the actress lied about her admission to international universities, stating she never applied for them.
The comments came earlier this month via an Instagram account after Ananya reportedly spoke about in an interview how she gave up admission abroad for Student Of The Year 2.
"I was all set to go to college. I was going to USC (University of Southern California) to study, but wanted to give it one shot before I left. So I went and auditioned for the film. And luckily, I got it. This a dream come true," Ananya was quoted as saying.
Chunky told in an interview that he wasn't aware about the social media buzz around his daughter's education.
"Yes, she got into two universities, but did not go because she got the film... I don't think she will be going to the university now. She will be working in Bollywood now," he said.
