Ananya Panday, who marked her Bollywood debut with Student Of The Year 2, claimed in most of her interviews that she had got admission in the prestigious University of Southern California. She stated that she chose not to pursue education as she wanted to focus on her acting career.
However, Ananya got involved in a little drama a few days ago as a bunch of her classmates stated that she was lying about getting admission in USC. Things became really ugly and Ananya, a butt of all jokes.
Now, Ananya has posted her certificate of admission to prove that she wasn’t lying. Ananya shared a few pictures of her admission certificate and a letter from the university with her fans today.
Along with the images, she wrote, “I didn’t want to do this. I didn’t feel like I needed to explain myself to anyone, but the rumours that I faked my admission at USC have been doing the rounds for a while now. They’ve been getting out of hand, and it’s even more unfair and sad that my family and friends have to go through this. As I’ve stated earlier, I was accepted by Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at USC for a major in Communication in the Spring 2018 semester. But since I was shooting for my first film and the release date later got pushed, I had to request for a deferral (which means postponing my admission) twice – first to Fall 2018 and later to Fall 2019, both of which they gracefully agreed to do. In my case, I could only defer my admission two times so I will not be attending university (for now), since I’ve decided to pursue my career in acting.”
“As for the people who have been trying to pull me down with these accusations, I would like to send you all lots of love, peace and positivity. And would also like to say that even though they’re claiming to be my classmates (nameless and faceless) – I’m sure they aren’t because I’ve grown up with the people I went to school with and they would never do something like that. It’s never okay to bully anyone – creating fake conversations, stories and screenshots is very dangerous and can seriously damage people’s lives. So please be loving, positive and kind. (PS – my father’s real name is Suyash and I blurred out my address for security reasons),” concluded the newbie.
Ananya will be next seen in Pati Patni Aur Woh and she will be sharing screen space with Kartik Aaryan and Bhumi Pednekar in the movie.
