During the show, Karan asked Ananya Panday if she was one of the women who adored Arjun Reddy, the character in the movie of the same name. To this, Ananya said that although she loved the songs and the movie, she would not be okay with the romantic relationship depicted in Arjun Reddy, neither for herself nor for her friends. She also spoke about how people often look at something on screen and start to believe that “it’s okay to act like that in real life.”
“Honestly, I feel like if people have come to him (Vijay Deverakonda), I’m sure there are people like that. I’m just not surrounded by those people. And I wouldn’t recommend any of my friends to agree. But that’s just the way I am,” Ananya added when asked if she’d be okay with girls being attracted to someone like Vijay’s Arjun Reddy character. Ananya’s answer has now won hearts on the internet.
One user who called Ananya “mature” tweeted, “I didn’t expect this maturity from Ananya Panday, well said.” As horribly boring as last night’s episode of #KoffeeWithKaranS7 was, it’s worth noting that #AnanyaPanday didn’t mince words while shouting #ArjunReddy – a hugely poisonous movie – while sitting next to #VijayDeverakonda, the rather boring) actor from the poisonous movie,” said another fan. “Ananya talked about her opinion about Arjun Reddy. I was like FINALLY SOMEONE HEALTHY,” someone else added.
Ananya will next be seen in Liger with Vijay Deverakonda. The film marks Vijay’s Bollywood debut. The film, directed by Puri Jagannadh, will be released on August 25.
