Ananya Panday was adorably honest in the new episode of Coffee With Karan 7where she shared the couch with liger co-star Vijay Deverakonda. Over the course of the show, Karan Johar asked Ananya about growing up in the “corridors of Mannat” alongside best friends Suhana Khan and Shanaya Kapoor (more on that later). KJo also asked if she had a crush on Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan’s son Aryan. Ananya said, “Yeah, he’s cute. I was in love with Aryan.” When Karan Johar asked her, “Why didn’t it happen?” Ananya said, “Ask him”, referring to Aryan.
Ananya Panday was also asked if their “friendship will survive” as both Shanaya and Suhana will be making their Bollywood debuts soon. To this Ananya confided: “Yes. Because it’s not even friendship anymore. I think it’s family. It’s always been family. I’d like to believe it wouldn’t affect our friendship. I think we all just have a lot of genuine love for each other. When I talk about it, I say it was a collective dream growing up. We all wanted to be actors. We had so many discussions and we played so many acting games. So I think I’ll be just as happy for the success of Shanaya and Suhana as I am for my own success. That’s how it really feels”.
