Here’s Why Ananya Panday Has Stopped Going To The Gym
Ananya Panday is the gift that keeps on giving and this time, we’re talking about her going to the gym. During an appearance on Kareena Kapoor Khan’s chat show What Women Want, the Khaali Peeli actress revealed that she no longer goes to the gym because she has run out of ‘gym looks’.
Now, it is a known fact that despite being the only fun person to watch in Student of the Year 2 or sharing intense chemistry with Ishaan Khatter on Khaali Peeli, the actress gets trolled on the daily for something or the other. We cannot deny her that. If the conversation was constructive and based on her acting skills or even on nepotism, it would have been completely justified but Panday often gets trolled for the way she looks or what she wears. There is also an immense pressure in the industry to always “deliver” good looks and be “on-point”, especially if you take the mainstream road as Panday has so far.
On the episode of What Women Want, Ananya Panday was asked about the ‘gym and airport’ looks that are obsessively covered by the paparazzi. “I have stopped going to the gym because I don’t have gym looks to give. I am like, ‘How do I wear something new every single day?’ The gym and airport are two places where you have to be comfortable. How will I sit in such a long flight in these trench coats and all? I can’t do it. My airport looks are sneakers, jeans and an oversized sweatshirt. I don’t give it that much importance at all,” she said, according to the Hindustan Times.
Of course, one must assume that the actress spoke in jest when she mentioned the fact about not having any gym looks. Or, at least, one hopes she did.
During the course of the conversation with Kareena Kapoor Khan, Ananya Panday was also asked about being trolled for whatever she wears, even if they are gym looks.
“When it comes to trolling, now I am just like, anything I do or wear, I am going to get trolled anyway. So it’s fine, as long as I am happy and comfortable. I have made it to Diet Sabya and I have been questioned on what I am wearing but that is something that I don’t actually obsess over or anything. As long as I am happy and I get good pictures to put on my Instagram, I am fine,” she responded.
The actress was last seen in Khaali Peeli and is currently shooting for Shakun Batra’s untitled film which also stars Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi. She’ll also be seen opposite Vijay Deverakonda in Puri Jagannadh’s Fighter.
