In recent times, there’s been a lot of talk about how Bollywood seems to favor actors with less talent over those who are genuinely skilled. Ananya Panday, being a star kid, has faced constant scrutiny in this debate. It’s unfortunate that despite getting many big breaks, she hasn’t been able to win over the audience. Her acting skills were the subject of a viral Reddit thread where people discussed why they think she’s the worst actor despite getting plenty of opportunities to impress everyone.
Here’s what netizens shared what they think about Ananya Panday’s acting skills and movie career in the Reddit’s viral thread:
“Panday cannot do natural acting at all lol 😂 no spontaneity, she always makes this angry face which looks so off-putting.”, wrote a netizen. Another netizen mentioned, “When she was crying in Gehraiyaan when she got proof her fiancé was cheating on her, it was so funny to me, I was laughing. 😂😂…Just coz she makes this 😒😑 facial expressions doesn’t mean acting. Behen has lived life in a bubble, she wouldn’t understand how acting works.”We have set the bar so low for nepos😂 even overacting is tolerable after watching their performances.”, wrote a netizen.
While talking about Ananya’s acting skills, a netizen mentioned, “Ananya is non-expressive no matter how hard she tries and cannot move to save her life…Well, she can’t act to save her life. Hopefully, she will be forgotten in a few years and let’s hope Sara and Janhvi are also gone by then.”
Some netizens did mention their disappointment with Ananya Panday replacing the talented Nushratt in Dream Girl 2.
“The saddest thing is this lowest than mediocre actress replaced a good actress in the second franchise and tried to ride on the success that was deserved by some non-nepo Ananya has the poorest dialogue delivery. Her accent makes it worse. All of them seriously need to learn how to deliver dialogues. Especially Ananya and Janhvi. I couldn’t watch dream girl 2 bcoz of her. My family literally dislikes her soo much.”
“Nepo-nanya will do one movie with a tight screenplay and directed by a competent director, there will be PR articles flying about how her critics were wrong all along. Add in a National award, if that’s too much, Filmfare is given.”, mentioned a user. Another netizen wrote, “The only reason she even has a career is because of the goodwill that her father enjoys in Bollywood.”
