About the experience

Due to COVID-19, this experience was fulfilled over a video call.

Who is Ananya’s favourite character in Harry Potter? Which is her all-time favourite film? What book is keeping her occupied during the lockdown? Does she like mythology? Which iconic film would she want to be a part of? Shreyas and Shahu discovered the answers to all these questions and more, all whilst being virtually starstruck! Ananya discovered that Shreyas is an aspiring actor and a talented VFX artist, and that Shahu has met her numerous times before! She recounted how Shahu gifting her a bouquet of Perk chocolates was part of her favorite fan moments! Shreyas and Shahu aced a quiz about Ananya. Did you know she was scared of dogs as a child, but now has two adorable pet dogs, Astro and Fudge. Shreyas and Shahu then proceeded to ask her some questions. Will Khaali Peeli release in the theatres? Fingers crossed (maybe we’ll see Shreyas and Shahu at the screening)! Ananya was all set to give Shreyas and Shahu some delightful relationship advice. She proceeded to ask them who their respective crushes were, but found out they have only been crushing on her! Cue - happy tears. If you’re into Indian Mythology and are looking for an interesting book to read, Ananya recommends “The Palace of Illusions”, which is Mahabharata from Draupadi’s perspective, and “The Forest of Enchantments”, which is Ramayana from Sita’s perspective. After this amazing conversation, our heart is happily humming away. Here's hoping for an Episode 2 of the same!

About Hothur Foundation

Hothur foundation helps uplift the economically backward by providing medical aid, quality education, and counselling for women and children.

This campaign will help raise funds for economically challenged women and children who are acid attack survivors. As heartbreaking as it sounds, acid attacks are unfortunately still very common in India, and in so many cases families have been driven to bankruptcy due to the astronomical cost of surgeries and medical recovery. Hothur foundation covers 100% of the costs of medical treatment and helps empower acid attack survivors. The funds raised through this campaign will be used to medically & surgically treat child acid attack survivors by providing reconstructive and corrective surgeries, to correct functional, non-cosmetic deformities, and improve their quality of life, as well as provide for their education and welfare needs outside the medical sphere and provide counselling with regular follow-ups.
