Ananya Panday is one of the beautiful and finest newcomers in Bollywood. She is the daughter of Chunkey Pandey and Bhavna Pandey. Ananya Panday opened up on getting trolled way before she made her Bollywood debut. She told how she use to get nasty comments about her looks and appearance from being called a boy to a flatscreen. Ananya told how the comments affected her. She told to Bollywood Bubble,

“I don’t remember the exact time but I remember there used to be pictures of me with my parents. At that time, I wasn’t an actor. I would go out with my parents and as I said, I was very thin. People used to say I look like a boy, a flatscreen and all those kinds of things.”

Ananya Panday added,

“At that time, it did hurt because those are the times when you are forming your self-confidence and you are learning to love yourself. And then, when you feel like someone else is pulling you down, you start doubting yourself, the way you look, and everything. But I feel like now, slowly, I am reaching a point where I am just focussing on accepting myself.”

Ananya talked about how realization is more important than anyone else. She continued,

“If that is sorted and that is my foundation then nothing can hurt me since I am at peace with myself and I love myself. I am not saying it has happened. It is an ongoing process but I feel this realization is more important than what anyone else says.”

In 2019, Ananya Panday launched an initiative ‘So Positive’, to tackle cyberbullying. In an interview with HT, Khaali Peeli actress talked about the change in people’s social media behavior after the launch of her campaign. She added,

“I am seeing a lot more positive responses. Now, when I see a negative comment on my page, I always see a positive response to that negativity. That’s the whole point of ‘So Positive’; it’s not to fight negativity with negativity but to give love back to haters.”

Ananya Panday will be next seen in Shakun Batra’s next movie opposite Siddhant Chaturvedi, and Deepika Padukone. She has also signed a pan India movie of Puri Jagannadh ‘Liger’, opposite Vijay Deverakonda.
