We all have a lot of memories when it comes to our school life. Where some of us miss our school days, some faced difficult times. Ananya Panday who has made her debut today with Student Of The Year 2, opened up on her school life and revealed that she was bullied in school.

She said:

In school, I would always be uncomfortable because my skirt would expose my thin, chicken legs and wiry hands. I would get called a hunchback as I am tall and would always bend down to hear people. This is the reason trolls don’t affect me, as I have been bullied in school.

She also shared, “In my school, we wore uniforms and couldn’t apply nail polish or kajal. I had so many problems like body issues, stress and exams. I am really skinny even though I eat like a beast. Everyone wants to have a curvy body and look a certain way, but I think now I am comfortable in my skin.

Ananya may have made her Bollywood debut with SOTY 2, but did you know she had a cameo of sorts in My Name Is Khan but it didn’t make it to the final cut? She used to visit the sets of the Karan Johar directorial with Shah Rukh Khan‘s daughter, Suhana Khan. During one such visit, they got a chance to be a part of one scene in the film. Recalling that, she said, “They need some extras to give a passing shot. We were 10 back then. We thought we had given the shot of our life and waited with bated breath for the scene, but it never came. We were devasted to know that it had been edited from the film.”

Ananya will next be seen in the remake of Pati Patni Aur Woh which also stars Kartik Aaryan and Bhumi Pednekar.
