Ananya Sharing about her Toxic Trait: "It is very similar to Ahana..."

The actress shared, “It is very similar to Ahana (her ‘Kho Gaye Hum Kahan’ character). I have a very validation-seeking side, so I can become a little needy sometimes. I need to know, ‘Is everything okay? Are you okay with my performance? Did you like this or that?’ Sometimes what I’m trying to get better at is not basing myself so much on someone else’s opinion. It is very similar to Ahana’s journey.”

"I'm so happy about the realization"

Adding to the discussion, she elaborated on the toxicity of social media and how its reach exceeded her expectations. Ananya shared saying. “In general, I used to see before, when I post pictures on Instagram and be like, ‘Who messaged me?’ or ‘What are the comments?’ or ‘What are the likes?’ or ‘Who all have reacted to it?’ and get very upset if it didn’t reach that many likes. But I’ve realized that I stopped caring about this, and I’m so happy because it was a very toxic and sad way to go.”
