Actor Chunky Panday says that choreographer turned director Farah Khan had a crush on him during his younger days.

Actor Chunky Panday’s 18-year-old daughter, Ananya, has been in news for quite a while now. Whether it’s speculation around her Bollywood debut or spotting at Lakme Fashion Week with close friend Suhana Khan, Ananya has been creating a lot of buzz. She also got noticed for getting selected at the Le Bal Des Debutantes this year, an annual international fashion event that brings together daughters of the rich and famous from various countries.

Chunky Panday says he is happy that his daughter Ananya is getting so much attention.

And if all this wasn’t enough, the star daughter once again came into limelight when her mother Bhavana Panday recently shared her photo and choreographer turned director Farah Khan commented, ‘Do a DNA test please. She’s too lovely to be Chunky’s child’. While many took Farah’s comment as a joke with a pinch of salt, it didn’t go down well with some, who slammed her.

Meanwhile, as everyone waited to see how Chunky would react, here’s the moment. The actor tells us that they had a laugh over Farah’s joke at home. “Farah is a darling friend and I know what she meant. She actually called Ananya beautiful. So I take that as a compliment. Also, Farah, Sajid [Khan] and I have a dark sense of humour, so we often crack such jokes about each other,” says Chunky.

The actor, in his candid self, reveals, “Farah used to openly crush on me when we were young. And I always joke that crush got crushed. In fact, both my parents were doctors but I was a duffer. So when I was young, I also got my DNA test done.”
