Early life

Panday was born on 30 October 1998[3][4] to actor Chunky Panday and costume designer Bhavna Panday. She studied at Dhirubhai Ambani International School until 2017.[5] She participated in Vanity Fair's Le Bal des débutantes event in Paris in 2017.[6][7]

Career

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.[8] Writing for Scroll.in, Nandini Ramnath felt that Panday showed potential in an unremarkable film.[9] The film underperformed at the box office.[10] 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.[11] India Today mentioned that Pandey is "bland and boring with no spice."[12] With a worldwide gross of 1.15 billion (US$14 million), it emerged as a commercial success.[13][14] Panday won the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut for her performance in both Student of the Year 2 and Pati Patni Aur Woh.[15]

In 2020, Panday appeared in the action film Khaali Peeli, starring Ishaan Khatter.[16][17] The film was released digitally on Zee Plex.[18] She next appeared alongside Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi in the 2022 romantic drama Gehraiyaan, which released on Amazon Prime Video.[19] Anna M. M. Vetticad from Firstpost wrote, "The surprise in this ensemble is Ananya Panday who brings a gravitas to Tia's confusion and innocence that makes you wonder why she chose to debut with the hollow gloss of Student of the Year 2".[20][21] Her final release of the year came with Vijay Deverakonda in Puri Jagannadh's action film Liger, a bilingual production in Hindi and Telugu.[22][23] The film was a critical and commercial failure,[24][25] with Panday's performance being panned.[26]

Panday will next appear in the coming-of-age film Kho Gaye Hum Kahan alongside Chaturvedi and Adarsh Gourav, and in the spiritual sequel Dream Girl 2 alongside Ayushmann Khurrana.[27][28]

Panday is the celebrity endorser for several brands including Lakme and Gillette Venus.[31] She was ranked in The Times of India's listing of the Most Desirable Women at No. 37 in 2019,[32] at No. 31 in 2020.[33]
