Ananya Panday survived a near-fatal incident on the sets of Student Of The Year 2. On a chat show, the actress revealed that her co-star Tiger Shroff came to rescue her, but ran in the other direction when he realised how life-threatening the situation was.
“I would have died! The airbags of the car opened up, Tiger Shroff came to save me, but when he realised that the car is going to blow up he ran in the other direction and left me,” she said, according to a statement given to IANS.
“Everyone had left me in the car and gone! I had heard all these horror stories that once the airbags open up your nose breaks — so my first reaction was — Is my nose broken? Later I realised much more could have happened. Then I saw the movie and the scene is not there and I was like I have risked my life for this,” she said.
Ananya made her Bollywood debut earlier this year with Student Of The Year 2. Directed by Punit Malhotra, the film was unanimously panned by critics and fizzled out at the box office after a promising start.
Even before her first film hit the theatres, Ananya signed her second project – a remake of the 1978 hit Pati Patni Aur Woh, alongside Kartik Aaryan and Bhumi Pednekar. The film, which will be directed by Mudassar Aziz, is scheduled to release on December 6.
