This week's model cum actor is "Anurag Pandey" from Delhi who is slowly becoming a name to reckon with on the Theatre circuit. A Model on the Block, Anurag hails from Moradabad and is keenly interested in dramatics, acting, modelling as well as walking on the ramp. A fresh bundle of talent to watch out for, Anurag has kickstarted his career as second lead in a short film “Girgitt” that is produced under the banner of Qrius Films. Girgitt will soon find a premier screening in one of the prestigious film festivals being held across the country. In this film Anurag is playing second fiddle to a policeman who is corrupt to the core and doesn’t mind using his power to make some extra money. He is also keenly looking to walk the ramp professionally for designers.
Of late, good films are thinly delineating the lines between cult and mainstream. Every day, we get to see a movie where the actors are pushing forwards more and more, and are enjoying more success in cinema than ever before. Ask him what roles he is keen to do and pops the answer: “Anything that is meaty and gives me a chance to experiment with myself. The nuances you can bring in such a project is ultimate. I would like to make any character as real as any living character and in ways more nuanced, more interesting."
Speaking about his ambitions, he says, “I don’t mind playing any character as I feel with my looks I can experiment variety, even negative, and it would be exciting just to be intrinsically evil that the audience would love to hate. Also I think doing such a role would not only be pretty challenging but are sure to raise your profile as well. Just the way, Rajkumar Rao has raised his own with projects like Shahid or Citylights!!”
As a role model, he look to actors of substance like Rajkumar Rao and even doesn’t mind shedding off his garbs if the role demands it. Having said this, he also adores Salman bhai for his popularity and Akshay Kumar for the varied roles he has done. "If I am able to do even one percent of what they have achieved, I will consider myself very lucky. I am just looking for that one chance to experiment with variety,” signs off Anurag.
With a focus to see himself on the big screen and make a mark, Anurag is keenly looking to do movies, TV serials & short films, ads, print media and ramp walk too. We at Films & TV World wish him all the best. To view his profile, click: http://www.filmsntv.com/p/models.html
