Ananya Panday was missing her best friends Suhana Khan and Shanaya Kapoor as she watched Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) win on Sunday night. The team, which is co-owned by Shah Rukh Khan, was up against SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) in their first match of this season’s Indian Premier League and won by 10 runs.
The Khaali Peeli star took to her Instagram Stories and shared a picture wearing the KKR team’s purple jersey. She had her fingers crossed as she watched the match. Sharing the picture, she wrote, “Misssing u guys!!” tagging Suhana and Shanaya. She also chanted the team’s anthem, “Korbo Lorbo Jeetbo re.” Shanaya reposted the picture and said, “missing!!”
Before Ananya became an actor, she was photographed several times attending the team’s matches with Shah Rukh and his daughter. Photos of Ananya, Suhana and Shanaya wearing the team’s jersey and cheering for them at the stadium were seen.
Last year, Suhana attended the team’s matches with her brother, Aryan Khan. Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, the matches were played in the United Arab Emirates. The two were seen seated in the stands, supporting their father and the team. Suhana jetted back to New York a few weeks after IPL 2020 concluded. She is currently studying at the New York University.
Ananya has been busy with her acting career. The actor, who made her Bollywood debut with Student of the Year 2, was last seen in Khaali Peeli. She starred opposite Ishaan Khatter in the movie. The actor has a few projects in production. This includes Liger, opposite Telugu star Vijay Deverakonda, and Shakun Batra’s untitled next. The movie also stars Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi.
