Ananya Panday has completed two years in the industry today. She made her Bollywood debut with ‘Student of the Year 2’ alongside Tiger Shroff and Tara Sutaria in 2019. Since her debut film, there has been no looking back for the actress.
Reflecting upon the time she has spent in the industry, Ananya told ETimes, “It’s been such a wonderful journey these past two years and I’m truly so grateful and blessed to be living my dream. I wouldn’t be here without the love, encouragement, wisdom and advice from all the people I am surrounded by. I’m forever thankful to all the technicians, directors, DOPs and actors I’ve worked with because I’ve learned so much from each and every one of them which will be lessons I’ll carry with me forever.”
The actress, who followed in father Chunky Pandey‘s footsteps by entering showbiz, further added, “And nothing would be possible without my fans (I don’t like that word so I’m going to call them Ananians – a word they have coined for themselves). The immense love they shower me with every day motivates me to work doubly hard. I hope to continue working even harder, challenging myself, never stop learning, and have many more adventures on movie sets.”
Ananya also hoped that the magic of movies will return post the Covid-19 pandemic. “Hoping and praying for the world to heal – it’s a very difficult time and I’m sending love and prayers to everyone. Hopeful the magic of movies will return very soon!” she concluded.
The star kid has featured in films like ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’ and ‘Khaali Peeli’. She is set to impress the audience with exciting projects like ‘Liger’ alongside Vijay Deverakonda and Shakun Batra‘s untitled next alongside Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi.
