Gen Z star Ananya Panday is the talk of the town for spreading kindness around like confetti. She recently extended her initiative ‘So Positive’, and launched a campaign ‘Social Media for Social Good’ to hail the Samaritans who have used social media to help the ones in need during the second wave of Covid 19.
Speaking about the her relationship with social media in an interview with a leading magazine, Ananya shared, “Currently, my relationship with social media is like that of a couple who has taken a long break and then gotten back together so it’s pretty good right now. When it comes to social media, I think it’s important to set boundaries with yourself.”
She further adds, “You need to recognize when it’s getting too much, or when it’s affecting your mental health, and I’m not very good with that. I tend to indulge once I start scrolling, I just keep scrolling and don’t know where to stop. So I’m really trying to monitor that.”
Ananya then talked about her initiative, a series titled ‘Social Media For Social Good’ to spread positivity on social media. “Recently, I launched this initiative on social media, where we feature the stories of social media heroes, and how they’ve helped their followers. That’s something that really shows the positive side of social media,” she said.
On the work front, Ananya is on a roll with different projects from multiple genres. She has Shakun Batra’s next and Pan-India film ‘Liger’ in the pipeline.
