Ananya Panday has established herself in the industry with her spectacular performance and charm. As she's all set to work in the upcoming Shakun Batra's film, the 22-year old actress seems very excited. However, she insists on growing and learning every day and doesn't like being treated like a baby. In her interview with a leading tabloid, Ananya said, "I am excited to grow up. It’s been a year for me in the industry and it has been two years for Ishaan (Khatter, her co-star in Khaali Peeli). We are learning new things every day and gaining new experiences. I am looking forward to growing up in general and also in the industry. Because I feel the older I get, the more things I am capable of doing."
Her last film Khaali Peeli fell short in impressing the audience at large. Talking about the same, Ananya said, "Khaali Peeli is a typical, romantic, masala film. It has a bit of everything. But for me, what was the most exciting part of the film was the treatment of the film. We aren’t the typical hero and heroine. Pooja, my character, is not a damsel in distress. She gets in on the fight. She is a part of the action sequences. I thought that was cool. When sir narrated the film to us, I was like ‘Oh my god! Is she going to do all that stuff?’ It’s the first time I have ever done action in a film. So I really, really like that and I think Pooja is super fun, she is street smart, she is nakhrewali, fully filmy. She is a full-on Hindi picture hero and I like that. It is cool to see female characters like that on screen. So many people told me after watching that ‘You weren’t that typical abla naari. You got into the action, fought for yourself."
