Ananya Panday who is all set to debut in Bollywood with Karan Johar's Student of the Year 2," in her recent interview revealed she wants to grow a thick skin like her actor-father Chunky Panday.

In her interview, Ananya was asked if she feels the pressure to sustain in the industry as she comes from a film family, to which she replied, "I think I do because my father has such good comic timing. So, that is something that I always hear is that, "Did you inherit that comedy from your father? My character in the film (SOTY 2) is also pretty funny and she gives these one-liners, so I think the pressure is there especially in the comedy department which I will try to hopefully live up to."

She was also asked if her father gave her any advise before her Bollywood foray? She said, "He didn't give me any advice because he knows that his time was really different as compared to mine. So he thinks that I cannot apply the things which he applied during his acting stint. But I think I have learnt a lot from his behaviour." She further explained, "He never changed because of his successes and failures, so I want to be like that. I also want to make jokes in my stride the way he does. He always cracks jokes on himself. I want to grow thick skin like him."

Student of the Year 2 is helmed by director Punit Malhotra and produced by Karan Johar, Hiroo Yash Johar and Apoorva Mehta. It is also a sequel to the 2012 film "Student of the Year", and stars Tiger Shroff and newcomer Tara Sutaria.
