Bollywood is burning in the fiery debate of nepotism and all the filmmaker and the star kids are at the receiving end of hatred and criticism. They are alleged of making it hard for the outsiders to get projects while star kids bag all the big banner movies just by pulling some strings in the industry.
After Sushant Singh Rajput’s tragic demise, this nepotism debate was turned into a worldwide campaign against the Bollywood mafias and infuriated netizens made ‘Sadak 2’ trailer the third ‘Most Disliked trailer’ in the world on YouTube. But amid all this, the news of a new star kid’s launch is keeping the internet abuzz.
As per a media report, Ahaan Panday, the cousin of actress Ananya Panday and nephew of Chunky Panday, is all set to make his entry into the world of cinema from Yash Raj Films ambitious YRF Project 50, which is also reported to launch Aamir Khan’s son Junaid.
As details about Ahaan’s debut film, like who’ll be directing the movie, the storyline and its title etc are still under wraps but for those who don’t know much about Ahaan, here are some insights.
Well! Ahaan is already a social media sensation and he is quite thrilled and excited to be a part of Bollywood as well. Soon to be a star, Ahaan is the son of celebrity fitness trainer Deanne Panday and her entrepreneur-husband Chikki.

According to a YRF insider, “The launch was long due. Ahaan is a very good looking and talented person who already has a huge fan following on social media. Aditya Chopra has finally found an apt project for him. This film will be a part of YRF’s 50th celebrations.”
