Current rumours doing the rounds is that Karan Johar could cast Chunky Pandey and Ananya Panday in a film as reel father and daughter. But at the moment Panday is super proud of his daughter winning Best Supporting Actress for ‘Student Of The Year’ (2019) at the 65th Amazon Filmfare Awards 2020.
Reported on Deccan Chronicle, Pandey shared how thrilled he is, “My wife and I are overjoyed. This is the first Filmfare trophy in our home. The feeling can’t be put into words.”
Reflecting on his career in Bollywood and though never winning a Filmfare Award, Pandey expressed how happy he was to finally have the Black Lady come home, “I have been acting for 34 years. I made my debut in Pahlaj ji (Nihalani)’s Aag Hi Aag. I never got an award, even though I was nominated four times. So finally, the Black Lady comes home.”
The ‘Vishwatma’ (1992) actor also spoke about how the ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’ (2019) actress is very dedicated to her job, “She’s more focused on her career than I ever was, that’s for sure. She’s a fast learner too. As for the award, I am far more pleased with her getting an award that I’d have been if I had got one.”
