Those who hate are also your fans in some way: Ananya Panday
Ananya Panday He could have debuted in Bollywood, but the young actress has already been a favorite of trolls, either because of his comments about his father, actor Chunky Pandey 'S, fight in the industry, or your opinion about nepotism. However, during a recent youth summit in Bangalore, the Student of the year 2 The actress won the hearts of the audience while taking a series of questions on stage with enough enthusiasm. Excerpts ...
Dealing with trolls
People say hard things online: there was even an instance in which people had said that I was faking my admission to college, and that I didn't really have to choose between my university and my career. I know I didn't lie, and I didn't know why people wrote what they did. So, things like that hurt. But I have learned to let go of things that I cannot control and I believe that change begins from within. Kindness is underestimated, so I always concentrate on how I can remain kind. Actor Tiger Shroff, my 2-year-old student cast partner, said: the bigger the goal, the easier it is to shoot. So, in that sense, all my enemies are my fans too, somehow, because they are giving me so much importance, taking time to post about something and write a negative comment. And kindness is the way to solve problems because I believe that those who spread hate are the ones who need love the most.
I would lie if I said that the negative things that people have to say have not taken their toll and everything is wrong. I am happy and positive for the most part. But it's normal when the strange comment hurts you and you get angry about it.
My work keeps me motivated. I love acting and being part of the industry. And I am surrounded by such lovely people who are taking care of me and really love me: my family, my team. The love that surrounds me keeps me going and completely overcomes hate. That is what those who feel bogged down should also do: spending time with the people you love and things will improve instantly. It is the best medicine.
Sometimes I also feel bogged down, but I try to focus on the good things in life. I think it is important to go through sadness and overcome negativity. I try to concentrate on a positive moment every day, and I encourage everyone else to do the same as well. In case you don't have a happy moment, I suggest you create a happy moment for another person, and that also becomes your happy moment!
In time I
I take time for myself and overcome stress by relaxing with my family. I used to be an annoying teenager who didn't have conversations with the family and went out to my room to be alone. But I grew up and I'm glad I did. I realized that the way we think our parents don't understand us, they might also be thinking the same about us.
In celebrating the confusion
The theme of this year's summit, celebrating the confusion, is very appropriate for me. It is natural to be confused about decision making and one must accept it. Only when you think about all the different options available and the repercussions of choosing each one, does that confusion begin. And I think it is also necessary.
In addition, I love interacting with people and if there is any possibility of speaking, I am a game, because I love to talk. And the fact that he can do it, especially with young people, and being surrounded by people passionate about what they do is incredible. The opportunity to meet interesting people always excites me, it is what I love about my work too.
Digital detoxification is necessary
I feel that every time I open my phone, when I see disturbing news updates, it is very sad and scary to read about them, and it can be overwhelming to the point where I want to disconnect from my phone. But, having said that, I also believe that one should be informed and aware of what is happening in the world, so I do not separate completely. I find my peace when I return to the family, the people I love and to count my blessings.
Her best friend, Suhana Khan
When asked, which of her best friends doesn’t answer to her calls or chats immediately, Ananya says, “I always try to reach out to Suhana, on various social networking platforms, but she almost never responds immediately.” (Laughs)
Be in Bangalore
I love Bangalore. It is a lovely, creative and clean city. I am excited to be here and hope to return soon.
