Ananya Panday is an Indian actress who works in Hindi films. The daughter of actor Chunky Pandey, she ventured into acting in 2019 with leading roles in the teen film Student of the Year 2 and the comedy Pati Patni Aur Woh. For the former film, she won the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut and Zee Cine Award for Best Female Debut.
Panday made her acting debut in 2019 with the teen film Student of the Year 2, co-starring Tiger Shroff and Tara Sutaria, which was produced by Dharma Productions. Writing for Scroll.in, Nandini Ramnath felt that Panday showed potential in an unremarkable film. The film underperformed at the box office. Panday next starred in Pati Patni Aur Woh (2019), a remake of the 1978 film of the same name, alongside Kartik Aaryan and Bhumi Pednekar. She played a secretary who indulges in an affair with a married man, which was portrayed by Ranjeeta Kaur in the original. Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV found her to be “perfectly cast as the wide-eyed girl” but Jyoti Kanyal of India Today dismissed her as “bland and boring with no spice”. With a worldwide gross of ₹1.15 billion (US$16 million), it emerged as a commercial success. Panday won the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut for her performance in Student of the Year 2.
Panday appeared in the 2020 action film Khaali Peeli, co-starring Ishaan Khatter. She is slated to appear in Shakun Batra’s as-yet untitled 2021 romantic drama with Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi. She will also team with Vijay Deverakonda for Puri Jagannadh’s multilingual film Liger.
