Vikramaditya Motwane and Ananya Panday will soon come up with a cyber thriller

What Ananya said

“With Vikram sir, it was actually a dream to work with him because I’ve watched Udaan countless times. It’s my mum’s favourite movie. I think I was in shock when he wanted to meet me. To begin with, when my team said Vikram sir wants to meet you, I said, ‘For what? He wants to work with me?’ And when I met him, I asked him, ‘Are you sure you’re directing this film?’ He said, ‘Ya, I’m sure.’ So it took me some time to register that I’m working with Vikram sir,” Ananya said in the interview.

“The self-belief is very low in me. I’m a validation-seeking sort of person. So even when I’m on set, I need my directors to confirm like 10 times that the shot was okay. I’m always like, ‘Was it okay? Should I do one more?’ Even when someone praises my work or compliments me, my first reaction is, ‘Really? Are you sure? Me?’ So I have that, which I’m trying to get better at. I don’t know where it comes from. I think it’s always been in my personality,” Ananya added.
