The fifth episode of Pinch by Arbaaz Khan was released today and the guest for the episode was Ananya Panday. Ananya kept a smile on her face all through the episode and had an answer for all her trolls.
Ananya has been trolled a lot online. When she was a guest on Rajeev Masand's show, her statement about having struggled a lot was trolled a lot on Twitter. Ananya spoke about it on Pinch saying her statement was wrongly interpreted, and what she wanted to convey didn't come out well. Ananya was trolled a lot for her statement and memes were being made on the actress. When Arbaaz made Ananya go through a few of these memes the actress had a good laugh and said she loved memes and takes all memes made on her in a positive way.
Ananya and her best friends Suhana Khan and Shanaya Kapoor are together known as Charlie's Angels. When Ananya was asked about who Charlie was amongst them she said she couldn't reveal that and that it was a secret between the trio. Ananya once tweeted about her group and spelt ‘Angels' as 'Angles', for which she was once again trolled a lot on Twitter. Ananya feels people should understand it's normal to make a typo and people shouldn't make such a big issue out of it.
Arbaaz Khan further asked the actress what on social media pinches her the most to which she said, "If people troll me I take it in a positive way, but it upsets me when they start saying things about my mom, dad and even my little sister. I don't hate my haters, in fact, I feel they are my biggest fans because they are constantly checking on me."
Ananya further spoke about her initiative 'So Positive', which she started a few years ago on World Social Media Day. It's an initiative against cyber bullying. Talking about it she said, "I have always felt the answer to hate should always be love. I started this so that people who have no one to talk to can reach out to someone. Always talk to someone you trust, it can be your teacher, parents or cyber police too."
