Worsening the anti-nepotism wave in the country are ill-informed newcomers like Ananya Pandey who amidst Coronavirus scare, recession and outright starvation posted a picture on social media celebrating, of all things, Lipstick Day.
Those close to the semi-newcomer say it’s time to stop her frivolity in these fearful times. However Ananya’s father Chunky Panday speaking exclusively to this writer, defends her saying, “That (the lipstick social-media post) was a brand engagement. These are extraordinary times and everyone needs to cheer up.”
Ananya returns to shooting this month with Vijay Deverekonda for Puri Jagnannath’s Fighter.
