In a now-deleted photo, Ananya Panday can be seen smoking at her cousin Alanna Panday's mehendi ceremony. In a photo posted by one of the actress' fellow wedding guests, who was present at the party on Tuesday with her family, the actress can be seen puffing a cigarette. Reddit user who took a screenshot of the picture and posted it there before it was taken down caused a controversy.
“Was not expecting Ananya to be a smoker," the Reddit user commented beside the photo. Ananya was seen in the picture smoking while standing in a corner as the wedding guests gathered to celebrate. Many people expressed their shock and concern over Ananya's smoking in the wake of the picture's widespread debate. Others made fun of her.
A user wrote, “Dimag toh nahi hota yinlogo ke paas. Sirf cool dikhna hai,” “Crap, I didn’t know this. She is that beautiful and has such cute lips, can’t believe she is a smoker. Dang,” added another. While another comment read. “I am actually surprised. This is a reminder that not everything is what it seems." Another user wrote, “I have friends and family working in the media and basically EVERYONE smokes. Kareena is a chain smoker, kangana, priyanka, deepika, anushka even who preaches so much about healthy lifestyle. Men all of them as well. I think it’s basically to curb hunger.”
On Tuesday night, Deanne Panday and Chikki Panday were seen accompanying Ananya as she made her way to the mehendi ceremony. Atul and Alvira Agnihotri, Chunky Panday, and Bhavana Pandey were also present during the ceremony. Helen and Salma Khan attended the ceremony, which was held at Sohail Khan's house.
On the work front, Ananya Panday has a busy schedule ahead, including the highly anticipated films Dream Girl 3 with Ayushmann Khurrana and Kho Gaye Hum Kahan with Siddhant Chaturvedi and Adarsh Gaurav.
