The Student of the Year Ananya Panday, who is juggling between hectic schedules of her upcoming films and a number of brand endorsements, photoshoots has shared in a recent interview, her state of mind while shooting on sets of films and other projects. The actress who is only one film old gets candid about her way of working and how she processes her creative instructions.
Marking her debut with Karan Johar’s production Student of the Year 2, Ananya shared, “I am just in this ball of being excited, I am just nervous and I am highly dependent on the director, or the photographer. I just love taking instructions and I work the best when someone is super clear and tells me exactly what I need to do. Like in my first film, as it was my first film and I didn’t know anything about lighting or anything, I was really dependent on Punit. I didn’t even look at the monitor once. If the shot is fine, I will be like ok the shot is fine. I like being told exactly what I need to do.”
Ananya Panday, who has also emerged as a youth icon, has also become one of the most followed young actors on Instagram as she recently crossed a following of 4 million mark.
