Ananya Panday's debut film Student Of The Year 2 released on May 9, 2019. Five years later, trade insiders have these suggestions for the rising star

Actor Ananya Panday, who made her acting debut with Student of the Year 2, completed half a decade in the film industry this month. In the last five years, she has given the audience a lot of characters to fall in love with. While some struck the right chord with movie buffs, a few others failed to impress. But Ananya didn't stop trying, and she gave it her all. Last year, her startling work in Dream Girl 2 and her incredibly versatile performance in Kho Gaye Hum Kahan left audiences in awe.

Commenting on Panday’s choice of films, producer and film business expert Girish Johar highlights her inability to take risks. He shares, “She needs to select the right kind of movies, and associate herself with right kind of projects in terms of endorsements and events. It’s not necessary that you work with established big actors, directors. Who is stopping her from exploring newer set of ideas with a fresher set of directors?”

He gives example of actors, who have made a mark for themselves by trying different characters, and asserts that Panday also needs to step out of her comfort zone. “There have been so many talents who have worked independently on projects, which either are indie films or smaller releases, and proved their mettle by taking a tough route. For Ananya also, I’d suggest that this is the right way, rather than just working with just big stars. She is in a comfortable position in this industry to at least try and do different tings, and who knows one of them may click and she will get her footing back,” Johar elaborates.

After making a glamorous debut with SOTY 2, Ananya starred in a commercial potboiler Pati Patni Aur Woh co-starring Kartik Aaryan and Bhumi Pednekar. Her next outing Khaali Peeli released digitally at the peak of pandemic. Panday later experimented with a more mature theme of extramarital affairs with Gehraiyaan, where she shined while sharing the screen with the magnificent Deepika Padukone and the talented Siddhant Chaturvedi.
