“Most of the educational institutions are supporting So Positive and within 14 hours of Ananya’s first session at Lucknow, 17 colleges from across the country have reached out to her to be their guest and address victims of social media bullying,” says a source.
Talking about social media, Ananya said, “The reason I am standing here is because of social media. I don’t think I would have had the confidence to come and speak over here. Social media has given me so much love and it’s such a positive place. I love being on Instagram because I want to show people the real side of me and I want them to see the unfiltered version of me. I don’t want anyone of you to feel that we shouldn’t be on it because we will be bullied.”
The one-film-old actress is being praised for such an initiative at such a young age. “She is using her stardom in a right way by supporting the teenagers who are suffering cyber-bullying,” adds the source.
