Meet Ananya Swaminathan from ‘2 States’

2 States UK Release (4)Bollywood beauty Alia Bhatt portrays the role of Ananya Swaminathan in the upcoming Abhishek Varman directorial, 2 States.

Ananya is an intelligent, confident and beautiful girl. She is the eldest child of a middle class Tamil-Brahmin family from Chennai. Full of ambition and youthful energy, she rejects conventional outlooks on relationships, cultivating instead, her own unique viewpoint. She has unwavering faith in her ideas of right and wrong and no qualms in standing up for what she believes in.

Even though the cast, creed and community of the person she wants to marry are immaterial to her, she holds great value in the consent and happiness of her more traditional parents.

Ananya navigates the complex journey of falling in love with Krish (Arjun Kapoor), familial opposition, the madness of an unfamiliar Punjabi family and the imbalance between tradition and her own conviction, leading her to question everything she has so far believed about love and marriage… and her dreams of a life with Krish.

Come and fall in love with Ananya in UK cinemas on 18th April 2014.

2 States is produced by Dharma Productions and Sajid Nadiawala Productions.
