Post her debut, she went on to star in films like Khali Peeli, Pati Patni Aur Woh and Gehraiyaan.

The actress further recalled people telling her to fix her body and that it was very ‘hurtful’ to hear such things. She continued, “As soon as I started working, people started saying things like ‘you should fix this and fix that, like get a boob job or change something about your face. And, it is said very casually and not in direct words that you sometimes even don’t pick it up. They would say, ‘just fill up a little more. Put on some weight.

Ananya added that she was hurt by people’s suggestions. The actress thought, “Is that what people really care about? Is that what I am reduced to? Is there nothing about me paramount to my waist size or chest size? The worst thing you can do to someone is judging them for their body.

Ananya has interesting projects in the pipeline. The actress will be seen in Liger alongside Vijay Deverakonda. Besides that, she also has Kho Gaye Hum Kahan with Siddhant Chaturvedi and Adarsh Gourav.
