Ananya Panday is all set to grace the silver screen once again, this time in the much-anticipated movie 'Dream Girl 2'. The buzz is real as she joins forces with the incredibly talented Ayushmann Khurrana for this sequel. It's worth noting that just before this venture, Ananya shared the screen with Vijay Deverakonda in the movie 'Liger'. Unfortunately, 'Liger' didn't perform as well as hoped at the box office, which surely was a tough pill to swallow.


In a recent heart-to-heart with IndiaToday.in, Ananya got refreshingly candid about dealing with setbacks and the rollercoaster world of showbiz. Her perspective on handling failures is genuinely impressive. Even when faced with disappointment, Ananya remains steadfast in her belief in herself as an actor. She refuses to let the setbacks define her or make her question her worth.


Ananya's mantra revolves around trusting her gut and tuning into her inner voice. It's all too easy to get swayed by the opinions of critics and the noise from all directions, but she firmly holds onto the idea that listening to your own instincts is the cornerstone of growth and resilience. Instead of drowning in the sea of external voices, she emphasizes the importance of self-reflection. This involves digging deep into the choices she's made and analyzing them from every angle. As she aptly puts it, “I don’t think I question myself as an actor [despite failures]. When something doesn’t do well and if you start listening to everyone, critics, it doesn’t work. I think first you should listen to your own voice and kind of understand what was wrong with the decision that you made. You have to look at every aspect. What was wrong with the film? Did I do something wrong? It is important to access all of it.”


Ananya's wisdom isn't just confined to the world of movies; it's an outlook that resonates with anyone navigating life's challenges. She also gracefully acknowledges that making mistakes is part and parcel of her journey. Being relatively new to the industry and having a long road ahead, she accepts that fumbles are bound to happen. What sets her apart is her commitment to turning these fumbles into stepping stones. She firmly believes that embracing missteps, learning from them, and moving forward is the way to go. 

Ananya Panday's words aren't just for the glitz and glamour of the entertainment world; they're nuggets of wisdom applicable to anyone facing setbacks.
