Mira Rajput and Gauri Khan come together to support Ananya Panday in fight against online bullying


Mira Rajput and Gauri Khan became the two leading Bollywood personalities to publicly support Ananya Panday’s unique initiative against bullying. This was after the Student Of The Year 2 launched her new Digital Social Responsibility campaign coinciding with the World Social Media Day on Sunday.

Billed as So Positive, the campaign aims to build a community to create maximum awareness on social media bullying. Ananya took to Instagram to share a video where she was seen urging people to stop creating hatred on social media platforms. The caption of the video read, “So Positive (SO+). A part of growing up is taking responsibility & as a woke Millennial I, Ananya Panday introduce y’all to my Digital Social Responsibility initiative ‘So+'”

In the video, Ananya was seen discussing her personal struggles with social media bullying.

Reacting to her initiative, Shahid Kapoor’s wife, Mira Rajput, wrote on Instagram, “100% with you on this Ananya Panday. Say no to cyberbullying. Stop spreading hate without a face.”

Gauri Khan, wife of Shah Rukh Khan, too wrote in Ananya’s support, “Good iniative Ananya Panday… raising awareness about this subject.”

Ananya has spoken about her bullying experiences as a school student on several occasions. Speaking Times of India this year, she had said, “In my school, we wore uniforms and couldn’t apply nail polish or kajal. I had so many problems like body issues, stress and exams. I am really skinny even though I eat like a beast. Everyone wants to have a curvy body and look a certain way, but I think now I am comfortable in my skin.”

She had added, “In school, I would always be uncomfortable because my skirt would expose my thin, chicken legs and wiry hands. I would get called a hunchback as I am tall and would always bend down to hear people. This is the reason trolls don’t affect me, as I have been bullied in school.”

With Mira Rajput and Gauri Khan throwing her weight behind Ananya’s initiative, the campaign launched by the young actress is bound to get the much-needed boost in days to come.
