However, it seems like Ananya’s equation with social media has changed over the years. Talking about the online fame that often comes with the heavy price of being a soft target as an actor, she recently told a magazine that she has recently discovered the Mute feature on Instagram which lets her choose what she wants to see and absorb in her life.
She revealed that she has been muting accounts on the said social media platform, instead of blocking or unfollowing them because people tend to feed their thoughts and mind with what they see on the internet. “I believe that we need to make a conscious choice and switch,” she added and further emphasised that the exercise has worked for her. “ I choose to Mute accounts for a certain period of time until I am ready to allow them back into my life,” she reasoned.
While Ananya mentioned how she continues to have a ‘pretty good’ relationship with social media, she also told Cosmopolitan that at times it gets overwhelming using it. “But it’s all about learning. And once you realise the truth, it becomes all about acting on it,” she signed out.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Ananya Panday is currently shooting for her next project ‘Kho Gaye Hum Kahan’. In the film, she will be reuniting with her ‘Gehraiyaan’ co-star Siddhant Chaturvedi alongside actor Adarsh Gourav.
