On Sunday, the actress took to her Instagram handle to share a heartwarming note for her grandmother along with a series of throwback pictures with her. “rest in power, my angel ❤️ when she was born the doctors said she wouldn’t live beyond a few years because of a defected heart valve, but my Dadi lived and how. She worked every day up until the age of 85, going to work at 7 am in her block heels and red streaked hair. She inspired me every single day to do what I love and I’m so grateful to have grown up basking in her energy and light. She had the softest hands to hold, gave the best leg massages, she was a self proclaimed (and very politically incorrect) palm reader and never ever failed to make me laugh. The life of our family. You’re too loved to ever be forgotten Dadi – I love you so much,” wrote the actress who has always seen her grandmother Snehlata as her pillar of strength.
On Saturday, Ananya was snapped by the paparazzi earlier on Saturday. She later rushed to her grandmother’s house to accompany her family. Her father, actor Chunky Panday was consoled by his friends and relatives as he was seen performing the last rites for his mother. Ananya’s cousin, Ahaan Panday was also seen with the family, accompanying his grandmother and uncle Chunky in the ambulance.
On the work front, Ananya Panday will next be seen sharing screen with Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi in Shakun Batra’s upcoming domestic noir film.
