Ananya Panday on her collaboration with Will Smith
Ananya Panday is one of the most popular actors among the current generation of Bollywood celebrities. Since her debut in the film Student of The Year 2 in 2019, the actress has been in the limelight. And, after that, she showed her acting potential at every performance. She has worked in blockbuster movies including Pati Patni Aur Woh, Gehraiyaan and others. For the ignorant, Ananya worked with Tiger Shroff and Tara Sutaria in her first film. To everyone’s surprise, Hollywood actor Will Smith made a special appearance in one of the songs from the film. Earlier, in a chat with iDiva, the actress opened up about working with Smith and called him the “coolest person.”
The 23 year old actress said she and Tara hadn’t known Will would be coming to the SOTY 2 sets for a very long time. “Tara and I were super excited about Will Smith being on set because we heard someone’s rumor. I didn’t believe it at first because Punit (Malhotra) tells us everything. However, he didn’t tell us about Will for the longest time and tried to keep it a secret. A day before, while we were shooting a song, Punit casually told us and we were shocked. When Will arrived, he seemed to be the most laid back person. He was nice to everyone in the room. I just looked at him like a stalker and no words came out of my mouth,” Ananya said.
The actress was last seen in Sakun Batra’s Gehraiyaan. The film also stars Deepika Padukone, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Dhairya Karwa in the lead roles. It also featured Naseeruddin Shah and Rajat Kapoor in key roles. Then, Ananya has quite a few interesting projects in the works. Ananya will be seen in Puri Jagannadh’s pan-Indian film Liger alongside Vijay Deverakonda. She is currently filming for Zoya Akhtar’s Kho Gaye Hum Kahan where she will share screen space with Siddhant and Adarsh Gourav.
