A person stands up and says no to intimidation and many people will follow her, says Ananya Panday about her new initiative.
Being a celebrity has its own fair share of benefits, as well as disadvantages. While there are anxious fans who hope to see you and encourage you, there are others who aim, Troll and the bully, sitting miles away, exactly what Ananya Panday has taken as cause with their initiative so positive.
Ananya also mentioned that social media , although so powerful, it can also be a negative breeding ground. Trolling, in particular, is something that must be done with.
The 'SOTY 2' actress talked about what drove her to take up the cause and bring such a relevant initiative to life, " I have been thinking of this for a really long time because you know when social media intimidation takes place everyone sees it happening and it happens in front of everyone because its in digital platform but no one really says anything about it and when you are young you always aspire to be like someone and you always look up to someone and when you see someone takes action, I think everyone likes to follow that so one person stands up and says no to bully and a lot of people will follow that. So with this initiative what I am aiming to do is, build a community because when you go through things like cyber intimidation the most important thing for you, you have someone to talk to and feel like you are not the only person who is going through this. that's what I wanna do. I wanna show people they are not the only one who's going through this and there are many who are going through it. You have people to talk to and you have me if want to talk to. I want to bring light on this topic.
The different social media networking websites have a different impact and Ananya shared, " Instagram can be bad as well when you get Troll ed. But I think you need to take it positively and at the same time, not too seriously because it can get to your head. However, one should know that at the end of the day, you are here to act and that's what people [actors] should be here for.
Though Ananya might be just one film old but she has been witnessed the digital faceless world of bullies. However, the way she has tackled the Troll s is absolutely refreshing and healthy. Ananya Panday 's take on social media intimidation is commendable and is receiving appreciation from all across the world.
