Recently in a candid conversation, Alanna’s fiance Ivor McCray revealed why her actor-cousin Ananya Panday could not attend her engagement. In the video, Ivor said, She was doing a movie, and at that time, she was shooting for the project. However, Ananya’s sister Rysa and her parents Bhavana and Chunky attended the party. Alanna added that she understood how important the movie was for Ananya.
Ivor then jokingly asks Alanna whether they should reveal the real reason behind Ananya’s absence at the engagement, and instantly cooked up a story saying that they had a massive fight with Ananya. He also added that they were yelling at each other and then he asked her not to come for our wedding. “I told her that she couldn’t come to our wedding.” People “love to think that though,” Alanna laughed then.
Alanna and Ivor got engaged in November last year in Mumbai. Sharing a bunch of happy moments on Instagram, Alanna wrote, “So happy we got to have a small Indian Engagement Ceremony with our close friends & family before we head back to LA today! @ivor.” Several celebrities including Bipasha Basu, Lara Dutta, Sohail Khan, his son Nirvaan, sister Alvira and mom Salma Khan were a part of the celebration.
Alanna is the daughter of fitness expert and author Deanne Panday and Chikki Panday, who is the brother of actor Chunky Panday. She shares a close bond with Chunky’s daughter Ananya.
