“I was actually a student when I did Student of the Year 2. I was 18, just out of school. I just wanted to be a heroine, sing and dance, and look beautiful. I was just having fun in my first film. When I saw myself on the big screen, I realised I have a lot to learn and a long way to go. Luckily, I received a lot of love and acceptance from the audience. That has motivated me in my journey so far. My film Gehraiyaan, I think that changed everything for me. That actually made me an actor somewhere. I fell in love with the process of character development. Since then, there has been no looking back for me,” Ananya said during a session on the first day of Agenda AajTak 2023.

The 25-year-old also said she is a ‘hopeless romantic’ and that she would opt for a love marriage when time comes. “The benchmark for love is very high for me because of the relationship my parents share.

It makes you happy, I love love,” she added.
