Ananya Panday shared a hilarious incident involving Jackie Shroff, where he DM'd her and called her 'Bhidu'.

Jackie Shroff, renowned for his affable nature and endearing ‘Bhidu’ moniker, recently sparked curiosity with a peculiar text exchange. During a podcast alongside comic artists Rohan Joshi and Tanmay Bhat, Ananya Panday, accompanied by her ‘Kho Gaye Hum Kahan’ co-stars Siddhant Chaturvedi and Adarsh Gourav, unveiled an amusing encounter with the veteran actor.

Recounting the incident, Ananya disclosed, “Can I share what happened with me and Jackie sir? He randomly texted me saying ‘Bhidu’. I replied, ‘Yes sir?’, but he didn’t respond.” Rohan humorously chimed in, likening the exchange to receiving an Indian knighthood.

Delving deeper, Ananya narrated her subsequent in-person conversation with Jackie, divulging, “I met him a few days later at a screening or some event. I said, ‘Sir, you messaged me ‘Bhidu’ and didn’t reply, what’s up?’ He replied, ‘I just wanted to tell you ‘ki main hoon’.”

Shifting focus, Ananya’s recent film ‘Kho Gaye Hum Kahan’, featuring Siddhant Chaturvedi, Adarsh Gourav, and others, premiered on Netflix. However, apart from her professional front, Ananya’s personal life often surfaces in the limelight. Speculation surrounds her alleged relationship with Aditya Roy Kapur, with the duo reportedly spending the New Year in New York.
