The young debutantes are dressed by some of the most famous couturiers around the world. Ananya, who was seen at this high-profile event was dressed by none other than Jean Paul Gaultier for the event.

For the rehearsal of the event, Ananya chose a dress by famous Indian designers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. The dress which was a short black and gold number with bouncy hemline flattered her frame perfectly.

Family's pride

The entire Pandey clan was excitedly rooting for Ananya's big debut and were also enthusiastically sharing pictures on social media. Ananya's mum, Bhavana Pandey shared a picture of her in her black rehearsal dress.

Interestingly, Ananya's cousin Ahaan Pandey was also present at the ceremony. Ahaan's mum and fitness expert Deanne Panday shared a picture of the cousins waltzing together.

A celeb already

While Chunky Pandey was a popular supporting actor during the 90's and is best known for his roles in movies such as Tezaab, looks like his daughter Ananya has all the makings of a Bollywood leading lady.

The 18-year-old is already a paparazzi's favourite and is often snapped during her public outings. Ananya is almost always seen in the company of her famous best friend - Shah Rukh Khan's daughter Suhana.

In fact, the girl squad of Ananya Pandey, Suhana Khan and Shanaya Kapoor (Sanjay and Maheep Kapoor's daughter) is the latest young celebrity pack to gather media attention everywhere they go.

Ananya, with the famous company she keeps and her drop-dead gorgeous looks, is already making news. In the past, there were also reports of her making her acting debut opposite Tiger Shroff.

However, there are no confirmations, though dad Chunky has said recently that Ananya would like to get into films.
