Mumbai: Actress Ananya Panday’s debut film “Student of the Year 2” turned one Sunday, and she says it still seems so surreal.
“Student of the Year 2”, directed by Punit Malhotra, was jointly produced by Karan Johar, Hiroo Yash Johar and Apoorva Mehta under the banner Dharma Productions.
“Can’t believe it’s already been one year – it still seems so surreal. Whatever I wished and dreamed off came true on this date last year and I’ll forever be grateful to Punit, Karan, Dharma, Apoorva, Tiger, Tara, Aditya, Ravi sir and my entire cast and crew of the film,” said Ananya.
“The amount of love I’ve received from the audience and industry motivates me to work even harder and want to better myself every day. I feel blessed to have gotten this opportunity,” she added.
The film, also starring Tiger Shroff, Aditya Seal and Tara Sutaria, had received mixed reactions from people, especially for its “dreamy” educational institution. Nevertheless, the daughter of actor Chunky Panday got a lot of love from people. On the one year anniversary of the film, her fans even made a special edit for her.
“This is the sweetest thing in the world. Thank you so much. I love you guys,” she posted on social media along with the video which has her saying “Park here now princess”.
