Nepotism in Bollywood is not something new. It has been practised since ages now. And if there’s anyone who comes to our mind when we discuss about the concept of nepotism, it’s got to be none other than Salman Khan. He has launched actors, uplifted careers of struggling actors, sung in movies, performed in dance numbers for friends and what not? Starting from Sangita Bijlani back in the days to his current alleged girlfriend Iulia Vantur, Salman has truly boosted the careers of many stars in Bollywood. The biggest example is Katrina Kaif, of course. I is said that once someone has ‘Bhai’s’ blessing, there’s no looking back for him/her. And from the rumors, it seems there’s one more actress to join the bandwagon.
And she is none other than Chunky Pandey’s daughter, Ananya Pandey. Ananya graduated from college a few days ago and reportedly, she is preparing for her big Bollywood career. “Salman and Chunky are good friends, they know each other for a long time now. So now Salman has taken upon himself to launch his daughter Ananya. She is apparently now grooming herself. She is working out with a gym trainer and is following a diet planned by a nutritionist, both suggested by Salman,” New Indian Express quoted a source as saying.
Salman Khan is the true godfather of Bollywood. Earlier he had launched his good friend Suniel Shetty’s daughter Athiya Shetty and Aditya Pancholi’s son Sooraj Pancholi. Ananya is currently in Goa partying with her friends. Once she gets back from her holiday, the 18-year-old will start training under the guidance of the celebrity fitness trainer Yasmin Karachiwala.
