Bollywood’s new age star Ananya Panday on Thursday took to her social media account to wish the director of her debut film, ‘Student Of The Year 2’ Punit Malhotra on his birthday.
Taking to her Instagram story, Ananya uploaded a picture of herself and Punit where they can be seen in river rafting gear with their jackets and helmets on. The never seen before image shows the good bond shared by the duo beyond work space. She uploaded the picture with the caption, “Happy Birthday P! You’re 40!!!”
Punit had opened up on his first encounter with Ananya, he shared, “I think when she walked in the office I had made up my mind, because I found her very pretty. I saw this very nice pretty kid and I did not know how big a brat she would be.”
Ananya and Punit also share great chemistry and Punit also made a mention of how difficult it was to handle Ananya on sets. He jokingly mentioned “Ananya was very nice and docile in the beginning. But when I got to know her and she started opening up I was like “Yeh toh bahut danger hain. When we were handling her on the set well we had to handle her. You know.”
