Chunky’s girl to join films

Re­ports of ac­tor Chunky Pandey’s daugh­ter Ananya gear­ing up for Bol­ly­wood have been do­ing rounds and while he doesn’t mind his daugh­ter be­com­ing an ac­tor, there are some pearls of wis­dom he would want to give her.

“I would like to tell her that it’s im­por­tant that you don’t im­i­tate any­one else’s suc­cess story. You have to make your own story, and I would love to be known as Ananya Pandey’s fa­ther,” says Chunky.

The 54-year-old ac­tor had a dis­cus­sion with Ananya, who re­cently fin­ished her grad­u­a­tion. “Ananya fin­ished her stud­ies, and a cou­ple of months back, she did tell me that she wants to get into films. Nowa­days, you can­not tell your kids what to do. In­fact, you have to lis­ten to them. As a par­ent, give them great ed­u­ca­tion and val­ues and they will de­cide what to do in life,” says Chunky.

Mean­while, his voice will be heard in an up­com­ing an­i­mated film, Hanu­man Da Dam­daar. He has done the voice over for a tourist guide. While Pahlaj Ni­ha­lani, the chief of Cen­tral Board of Film Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion has raised ob­jec­tion to the char­ac­ter of Hanu­man hav­ing a col­lo­quial lan­guage, Chunky feels that the film should be just un­der­stood and en­joyed. “Peo­ple don’t know that Hanu­man ji went to Lanka dur­ing his child­hood also and he did the same thing, which he did when he had gone as a grown up for Sita ji. There is a mes­sage in the film that all should un­der­stand. The char­ac­ters are speak­ing a mod­ern lan­guage, which is en­ter­tain­ing. We want ev­ery­one to watch this movie and en­joy it,” he says.
