And the D-day is finally here for Karan Johar’s newest students. Yes, Student of The Year 2 featuring Tiger Shroff along with debutantes Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria has finally hit the theatres and it’s a sea of reactions out there. The fresh crop, after Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra, is contesting the challenge of the decade and it’s an entertaining ride! In fact, it looks like the current batch of St Teresa is here to win and subsequently stay. Especially, Ananya Panday who has already become a Tinsel town favourite. Thanks to her infectious personality and unapologetic candour, the starlet is already on her way of becoming a youth symbol. And her childhood pals Suhana Khan and Shanaya Kapoor couldn’t be more proud of her!
Shanaya has even shared a heartfelt note. Shanaya’s mom Maheep Kapoor has taken to Instagram to share her post for Ananya and it’s every BFF ever. While sharing a beautiful moment in the form of a picture, Shanaya wrote, “10/05/19, I cannot believe that this day has come, I’m crying while writing this post because it feels so surreal. We’ve grown up dreaming together, wishing together, working together, and today your journey has started. We’ve spoken about this since the day we could just about talk and I’m so happy that this moment has finally come and everyone’s going to see you on the big screen. From going to gaiety galaxy to watch Agneepath together to watching movies every Friday, without fail together, to dancing to every Bollywood song at every club together, your day into our favourite dream world has come, my Anne. I know how hard you’ve worked for this and you truly deserve all the happiness and success the world has to offer. The most special day, my superstar’s entry. I love you.” Maheep captioned the note as, “#TheseTwo”, while Ananya commented, “She’s so cute man.”
Aww, right? Wait till you see this. Earlier, Maheep had posted a video of the girls watching Koffee With Karan on the telly and it is safe to say that Ananya and Shanaya have literally grown up dreaming of being a part of Bollywood. She even wished the debutant all the best and had written, “My darling @ananyapanday , I wish you all the success as you move onto the next chapter in your life. ❤️ I know you are going to kill it !! ❤️#BestWishesForYouAlways #ShineBright #DontMessWithThisGirlDuffer ?? ???????? #StudentOfTheYear2 ??10/5/19 #BigDay ?”
While that is that, Ananya’s mom Bhavana Pandey has posted an adorable throwback video of the besties from their childhood, decked up in traditional wears, with mehendi-clad hands and it is truly too cute for words.
Ah, it doesn’t end here. Even Gauri Khan took to Insta and posted a good luck post for the upcoming star. Her caption read, “Love & wishes darling @ananyapanday big hug .. Proud moment for all .. friends &family ..congratulations #StudentOfTheYear2 .. @karanjohar”
Recently Ananya had said in an interview, “It has been our collective dream to become actors. I hope Suhana and Shanaya join the industry soon because they both are so talented. When we were young, during our family gatherings, we would put together shows and perform in front of our parents. Shah Rukh (Khan) sir would record us on a Handycam, and we would make short films out of them.”
After Student Of The Year 2, we will see the millennial in Mudassar Aziz’s Pati Patni Aur Woh remake with Kartik Aaryan and Bhumi Pednekar. The movie releases and clashes with Arjun Kapoor- Kriti Sanon’s Panipat on December 6, 2019.
