Actor Ananya Panday who made her Bollywood debut with Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year 2 is one internet sensation. However, being a star kid, she was no different to face the nepotism blow, online hatred and trolls. Just like other star kids, Ananya too was at the receiving end of criticism but did you know, she did not experience this kind of hatred after she made her Bollywood debut but in fact, at a very young age.
Speaking about the same, in an interview with Pinkvilla, she revealed that she saw a lot of toxicity and negativity but she believed in ignorance. “I think I was exposed to social media at a very very young age. So, a lot of my pictures were coming out and I saw a lot of hate at a very young age. There wasn’t one definite moment, I think it was just over the time seeing a lot of this hate and toxicity and negativity around that made me realise. Whenever I would get trolled, I think my parents would get way more affected than I did” Ananya told the portal.
The Pati Patni Aur Woh actor also mentioned that she deals all this by spreading love, she said, “I believe in ignorance is bliss and I also believe in giving love back to the haters because I feel like they are the ones who need it the most. They are probably coming from a place of insecurity or something is lacking in their lives and that’s why they are taking it out on you.
“So, I feel like if you give them back then you are probably are inspiring them to be nice with people” she further added.
