Ananya Panday, who is quite active on social media, was last seen in ‘Khaali Peeli’ alongside Ishaan Khatter. Recently, she celebrated her 22nd birthday in Goa with Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi on the sets of Shakun Batra’s next.
The team wrapped up the two-month shoot schedule and they were spotted by the paparazzi at the airport recently.
In an exclusive interaction with ETimes, Ananya spilled the beans on shooting amid the new normal. She said, “I just returned from Goa after two months, I was shooting my next film with Shakun Batra. I was definitely nervous the first time shooting in the pandemic but once we started shooting, it was really reassuring to see that all the safety precautions were taken. I realised how much I missed being on set and in front of the camera and I’m really glad that I can get back to work now and I’m really looking forward to shooting my next with Vijay Deverakonda and Puri Jagannadh sir. It was definitely challenging shooting in the middle of a pandemic and being away from home for two months, but once I’m on set I’m the happiest.”
The actress further also spoke about celebrating her birthday without her family.
She added, “I got so used to seeing my parents and sister and dogs every day because of the lockdown, so it was hard to get used to at first. And I even celebrated my birthday without them for the first time ever."
