A "Serial Chiller" as her Instagram bio declares Ananya shares a close bond with her family—mother, Bhavna Panday, father Chunky Pandey and sister Rysa Panday. The 22-year-old recently launched her “So Positive” campaign—an initiative against cyberbullying. She’ll be soon seen in the sports-action film Liger, which is set to release in September, 2021.
