Career

Anjali has completed five years in the Entertainment Industry as of 2020. She always wanted to be an actor. Anjali did her graduation in Mass Media and worked as an associate producer at Never Ending Story (a famous production house). In an interview, she said,

So, I pursued my Mass Media studies and went on to work as an Associate Producer in an ad production house with the hope that I would get an acting gig someday. But eventually, I realized that that’s not how it works and you need to simply audition. So, I quit my job and thus began the vicious cycle of calls, auditions, some hits and some misses. Today, as I complete five years in the industry, I feel blessed to have had exposure across digital sketches, commercials, web series, short films and now, Sony Liv’s ‘Scam 1992’. I feel fortunate that I’m not only living my dream but my mother’s too.”

Anjali was shortlisted by Mukesh Chhabra for a role in a Bollywood film in 2018 but did not get the part. A year later, she was selected by Mukesh Chhabra for a role in Hansal Mehta’s web series Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story. The show is about Harshad Mehta, the man behind India’s biggest financial scam.

Facts/Trivia

  • Anjali decided that she wanted to be an actor when she was seven years old, but according to her, she was not confident enough to share this with anyone. In an interview, when she was asked about where she got her passion for acting, she said,

    I get it from my mother. She always harboured this dream of pursuing acting but she couldn’t really do much about it. Back in those days, it was a lot of factors such as resources, knowing the right people or simply even taking the plunge that was a challenging affair. But she always had this one dream of watching herself onscreen and among the many other things that I have her to thank for, this is one of them that I have imbibed from her. I was certain that I wanted to be an actor since a very young age and I couldn’t picture myself doing anything else.” A childhood pic of Anjali Barot
