Bollywood actor Chunky Pandey’s daughter Ananya Pandey has already debuted in the film industry with Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year 2’. The film also starred Tiger Shroff and newbie Tara Sutaria. Being the sequel of hit franchise, SOTY2 bagged an average response at the box office. Nevertheless, the actress bagged her next film titled ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’. It is an adaptation of 1978 film. It is revolved around a married couple Ranjeet played by Sanjeev Kumar and Sharda played by Vidya Sinha and how things take place in their lives after Ranjeeta Kaur enters the character’s life.

Talking about the film, Ananya said: “The idea is the same, the skeleton of the film is the same, but it’s a very modernized version. It’s a version that some people could relate to in today’s times. It is very funny, so I am excited to up my game with this project. It is fun to be working with some really talented co-stars.”

The film is already making headlines due to the controversies related to the casting of the film. Taapsee Pannu raised the controversy by revealing that she was unceremoniously dropped from the film at the last minute and was given no clarification. However, the makers released a joint statement_: “When a script is locked, every director or producer approaches actors for the casting of the film, it is a basic protocol followed by almost all filmmakers. Similarly, for our upcoming project – Pati Patni Aur Woh, we reached out to many actors, who we thought could be our potential protagonists in the film.” Now, Bhoomi Pednekar is playing the role. Bhumi also shared pictures with Kartik, Ananya and the makers of the film on her social media handle.

When newbie Ananya was asked about the conflict, she said: “As an actor, I have never got involved in the casting process so I don’t know anything about the casting process. And the role she was speaking about is Bhumi’s.”

In the film, Ananya will be seen alongside Kartik Aaryan and Bhumi Pednekar. It is directed by Mudassar Aziz.
