Before making her cinema debut with Karan Johar‘s directorial, Anjali has been a part of several hit TV shows such as Dhai Kilo and Kulfi Kumar Bajewala.
When she had enrolled herself in acting school 10 years ago, people would tell her that she could never become an actor. But Anjali was pretty sure about doing lead roles of the show and stay clear of doing best friend roles who is eating burgers all the time.
When she landed her second TV show Kulfi Kumar Bajewala as a lead, Anjali told Siddharth Kannan that people have sent her 100s of DMs saying, ‘Who gives a fat girl a second show as a lead? I am sure she must be sleeping with someone’. “And I am wondering, these people think you won’t get work without sleeping with someone? It is stupid that we are still talking about all of this,” she added.
Anjali is currently receiving praises for her role of Gayatri who confronts her family for calling her Golu all her life and attacking her self-confidence. With this role, she saw an opportunity to turn the tables and make the person come out and say it.
She added that she is not less than the next person just because she looks a certain way. She said that she has complete faith in her talent and intent and she knows what she brings to the table.
