Ananya Panday’s debut opposite Tiger Shroff and debutante Tara Sutaria in Student of The Year 2 were with a lot of brickbats. It is a known fact that Ananya chose films over college. The actress has been quite candid about her dream of making it big in showbiz. Speaking about her decisions, Ananya had earlier said, “I was all set to go to college, I was going to USC to study but I wanted to give it one shot before I left so I went and auditioned for the film. And luckily, I got it. This a dream come true.”
However, according to a recent report in Mumbai Mirror, Ananya was recently called out for faking acceptance into US universities by a few girls on social media. Ananya attended Dhirubhai Ambani International School till grade 12. As per the report, a comment read, “Our school has a set of counselors and we all know where everyone’s applying and going. Ananya didn’t even get assigned a counselor because she always said she wanted to act or take a gap year. All of a sudden in March when USC released its decisions, she started saying she got accepted! But she didn’t even apply because our school conducts mock SATs which she never took. Everyone asked her to show her acceptance letter but she kept saying it’s lost.”
Ananya replied to these accusations and said they do not make a difference to her. “Once a film is out, people start making up stuff. I have no idea who this person is,” the actress told MM.
In fact, mum Bhavana Panday, too, had revealed to an interview to Pinkvilla earlier that Ananya had indeed got through USC and she held onto the seat just in case the film offer did not work out. But she eventually gave up the seat.
