She did her schooling from Dhirubhai Ambani International School, Mumbai.
Her girl squad comprises of Shanaya Kapoor and Suhana Khan. (Her Instagram is flooded with their pictures, and they have often been spotted chilling together.)
She was one of the few teenagers who made their way to the elite Parisian ‘Le Bal’ gala. Every year, elite families around the world come together to let the girls of their families make their official public appearance at an uber-glam and luxe ball in Paris, called Le Bal des Débutantes. Royal families, aristocrats, influential business tycoons and celebs alike waltz and party, and boy is it a grand affair!
Ananya is Chunky Pandey’s elder daughter, and is very close to her cousins, Ahaan and Alana Pandey. The former even accompanied her to Le Bal Paris.
Ananya was not the first choice for Student Of The Year 2. Earlier, Disha Patani, Sara Ali Khan and Jhanvi Kapoor were considered before her, but look who ultimately emerged as the winner!
Gearing up for her career in acting, Ananya is being trained by celebrity fitness trainer, Yasmin Karachiwala.
