On the occasion of World Social Media day, Ananya Panday announces her new initiative, ‘So Positive’ against social media bullying, on her handle. The actress who made her debut as the ‘Best Student’ in Student Of the Year 2 has been vocal on the whole cause and has launched one of its kind platform to battle it all. Soon after the announcement, Ananya also shared the logo of the initiative which reflects the complete philosophy of the initiative. Posting a video on her social media handle, Ananya Panday announced her new initiative named ‘So Positive’ as a Digital Social Responsibility (DSR). Illustrating all the struggles and battles the actress had to fight each day, Ananya’s initiative is surely the first step in the right direction to fight away what every teenager on social media deals with.
So Positive is an original cause taken up by Ananya which is backed with substantial data, research, and behavioral statistics. The initiative aims at creating and spreading awareness about social media bullying. The initiative’s prime focus is to make people aware of the fact that this issue exists and stays very prevalent in society. Also, the steps that can be taken by the recipients of this destructive criticism in order to deal with this. The platform would create engagement to inform the broader public about the existing actions to emerge out of the issue. Ananya’s initiative is centered around extending support and providing guidance to people to collaborate with helpful entities such as government and lawyers, to name a few. Entering Bollywood as the youngest star and creating a mark for herself with her promising debut along with a winning streak all across, Ananya has been vocal for the cause. Hence, Ananya’s announcement is surely a greater responsibility and proves her to be the real next-gen star.
Talking about why Ananya has taken up a DSR when there are so many other causes which require support, Ananya shares, “I decided to bring this up because it’s very relevant. I was older when I got on social media but I have a younger sister (Rysa) who is just 15 and she is already on Social Media. Trolling and bullying have become a norm on social media and people are not aware of the ways to deal with it. So it’s important to create awareness and let people know that they are not alone.”
On the work front, Ananya Panday will next be seen in Pati Patni Aur Woh with Kartik Aaryan and Bhumi Pednekar. Although the title is the same, this movie is going to be completely different than the original and is an out and out romantic comedy.
