Four-year-old Ananya Kurup, known to her loved ones as Shankari, is no ordinary child. At such a young age, she is an ace Bharatnatyam dancer.
She already has 28 stage performances to her credit and is aiming for a Guinness record for the youngest classical dancer. A Junior KG student of Presentation Convent School, Nerul, Ananya started dancing when she was just a baby and literally one year old. She resides in Nerul , New Mumbai. Her Mother recalls her wearing "ghungroos" whilst sleeping when she was barely of 1 year age.
