Ananya Panday finds herself immersed in accolades for her recent portrayal in the much-anticipated film ‘Dream Girl 2’. The actress gracefully embodied the character of Pari, the love interest of Ayushmann Khurrana’s role. Panday’s performance has garnered commendation from both critics and audiences, credited for infusing the film with a vibrant and youthful vigor, flawlessly adopting the requisite accent.

While ‘Dream Girl 2’ demonstrates promising box office figures in India, potentially charting a success story, Panday’s previous endeavor ‘Liger’, co-starring Vijay Deverakonda, faced a less favorable fate. In a recent interview with the Free Press Journal, Panday candidly addressed the disappointment surrounding ‘Liger’s’ box office performance and its personal impact.

In her conversation, Ananya Panday shared her philosophy of embracing setbacks as learning opportunities and propellers for growth. She emphasized the significance of introspection to identify areas of enhancement, rather than dwelling on letdowns. She affirmed, “There’s always something to learn from every experience. It actually makes you understand what went wrong and how one can be better. I don’t believe in keeping on sulking over things. Rather, I move on.”

For those unfamiliar, ‘Liger’, a sports action film directed by Puri Jagannadh and produced by Karan Johar under the Dharma Productions banner, graced screens in 2022. The film featured Vijay Deverakonda in the role of an MMA fighter, with Ananya Panday as his romantic counterpart. Unfortunately, the movie failed to make a mark at the box office and faced criticism from both reviewers and audiences alike.

Shifting focus to ‘Dream Girl 2’, the movie’s theatrical release on August 25 brought forth a sequel to the 2019 comedy-drama. In the initial installment, Nushrratt Bharuccha held the female lead role. ‘Dream Girl 2’, boasting a stellar ensemble including Paresh Rawal, Rajpal Yadav, Annu Kapoor, Manjot Singh, Seema Pahwa, and Vijay Raaz, has garnered predominantly positive reviews from its viewers. The film has amassed a domestic box office collection of over Rs 44 crores within a span of four days. Audiences are encouraged to partake in this humorous escapade at a nearby cinema.
