- Social media users recently trolled Ananya Panday for making a typo
- The actress misspelled 'Angels' as 'Angles' in her Twitter post
- "Tweet of the year," wrote a troll
Actress Ananya Panday recently shared a picture on her social media profiles in which she could be seen posing with her best buddies Suhana Khan and Shanaya Kapoor. It took her a while, but Ananya did correct herself and repost the picture - but not before eagle-eyed trolls had spotted her mistake. As far as errors go, it was hardly on the scale of Anushka Sharma's 2015 tweet in which she added 'Azad' to former President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam's name - which she deleted soonest and for which she was pilloried on social media. Ananya's typo, while not savaged at the same level, also invited ridicule. One troll called her a 'graduate from nepotism school,' which we thought was unnecessarily harsh since a misspelling can happen to anyone and really has very little to do with nepotism.
Here's Ananya Panday's corrected post:
And here are the tweets, where the trolls included her error:

There were several who jumped to her defence, saying a typo is just a typo. We agree.
Ananya Panday, 20, is only one-film-old but has already had a close encounter with social media unpleasantness. Earlier this year, she was publicly called out by former schoolmates for claiming she had been accepted into universities abroad when she allegedly hadn't.
Soon after, Ananya launched an anti-bullying initiative called 'So Positive.' In a video she shared, Ananya said: "They wrote you are too thin. You have no talent. You are a product of nepotism. They accused me of being a liar. Just for a moment, I contemplated about who they are. They are nothing just faceless, unidentified and unverified newly created social media accounts. Social media bullies and I thought why me? Why would someone who does not even know me pass such nasty personal remarks? In the end, I realised it's not me. It's not only me."
Here's the video we are talking about:
Ananya Panday's 'So Positive' campaign has received support from celebrities such as Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Priyanka Chopra, Arjun Kapoor, Tiger Shroff, Anil Kapoor, Preity Zinta, Karisma Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan, Sanya Malhotra, Gauri Khan, Malaika Arora, Karan Johar among others.
Ananya also wrote a post on the allegations that she lied about getting into universities: "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 University of Southern California 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."

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.

On the work front, Ananya Panday is preparing for her second film Pati Patni Aur Woh/i>, which also features Kartik Aaryan and Bhumi Pednekar.
