Ananya Panday, who received Best Debut award at the 65th edition of Filmfare Awards for her performance in Student Of The Year 2, disclosed how she almost forgot her acceptance speech. In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Ananya Panday said, "I had practiced it so many times, but when I went on stage I forgot everything." The actress was accompanied by her mother Bhavana Panday to the award function, which was held in Guwahati. Ananya said that she "wished" her actor-father Chunky Panday, who was missing in action, "was there too," and added, "Winning a Filmfare Black Lady is a big deal for me. My mom was there with me and how I wished dad was there, too. But I gave the trophy to him when I reached home." She also revealed that her father suggested her to keep it in the living room so that, "the family could look at it the whole day."
A proud Bhavana Panday shared a picture of Ananya as she slept holding the award with her. On the Instagram post, Bhavana wrote: "So proud of you my baby girl! Love you too much! Keep shining! Thank you!"
