Ananya has worked in two films so far. She debuted in 2019 with Student of The Year 2 and went on to feature in Pati Patni Aur Woh later. She’s currently working on Khaali Peeli with Ishaan Khatter and has also bagged another Dharma film directed by Shakun Batra that also features Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi in the lead.
