Ananya Panday is just one film old but the actress is raising in the popularity charts like a pro. The young belle is currently gearing up for her next film, Pati Patni Aur Woh, helmed by Mudassar Aziz, and costarring Kartik Aaryan and Bhumi Pednekar in pivotal roles. A remake of the 1978 classic by the same name, Pati Patni Aur Woh hits screens tomorrow and as the film is inching closer to release, Ananya, along with Kartik and Bhumi, are going into promotional overdrive. However, very few know that when Ananya was approached for the character of ‘Woh’ in the film, the actress was shocked as she thought of herself as the ‘Patni’ type.
Ananya Panday had revealed that she used to watch all the old classics along with her mother and her grandmother. The actress went on to reveal that she had laughed a lot every time when she watched the 1978 version. The actress opened up on what intrigued and attracted her to the character of Tapasya. She deemed her as not the usual vamp or home-breaker, but just a confident and independent young girl who usually finds herself in the wrong situation. ‘When asked what advice she would give to Tapasya, the actress told, “I’d tell her to not interfere in someone’s relationship. If that person wanted to be with you, they would not keep you hanging. So what’s the point of hurting everyone around you.” However, when quizzed about her take on love and relationships, the actress said, “I am a romantic person, I love being in love. I’m in love with the idea of love. I have had my fair share of relationships. It’s normal and one shouldn’t judge me for it because in school you have many short-short relationships, you know. I started working from a young age and have matured a lot in the past year.”
Prodded further if she’s ever been in a relationship, Ananya added, “My life is so public already, I want to keep some things private.” When asked though if she could be in a relationship with a person like Chintu Tyagi, the actress didn’t mince words: “It’s okay to be attracted to other people, but not to the point where your partner gets uncomfortable. I can’t ever deal with a boyfriend or husband like Chintu Tyagi. I’m very loyal and I expect the same.”
