Ananya Panday is yet to make her Bollywood debut but has quickly become everyone's favourite because of her spunky nature and outspokenness. The actress has been trending recently for her comments on Varun Dhawan in an interview with Elle India, which featured in the magazine's April issue. Ananya Panday, who covered Elle India's April issue in style, confessed her "love" for the former student when asked about the stars she look up to. Mentioning Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor, Ananya said: "Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor Khan. I am obsessed with both of them. Even Varun Dhawan! His energy...and he is so cute. He knows I am in love with him and it's a bit awkward."
Well, this shouldn't come as a surprise as on Varun Dhawan's birthday this year, Ananya poured her heart out to Varun as she wrote in her post: "Happiest birthday to the student I'll always be crushing on!" In the comments section, Varun replied: "We must get a better picture. You're looking solid."
Ananya Panday also scored a hug from her favourite Alia Bhatt, who makes a special appearance in Student Of The Year 2's Hook Up Song. "'Team Shanaya' for life," Ananya captioned the photo.
