Anjali Barot earned recognition for her role in the renowned web series Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story on SonyLiv. The actress will now star in the web series Shoorveer where she will play the role of pilot Mannju Thapliyal. The trailer of the show has been receiving a great response from the audience. In a recent interview, the actress revealed how she landed up getting the role saying, “Amarbir Bajwa was the casting director. He told me ‘I can only imagine you as Mannju’. He asked me to drop by for a screen test. I went to the office and I was confirmed for the part."
Talking about her show Shoorveer and how it is different and unique, Anjali elaborated, “Firstly, this is a fictional show, we have creative liberty. The show has concentrated on relationships between the soldiers, so you will see their stories. It has a very personal touch to it. That's the beauty of our show. You will not see the same thing again and again. I think the audience will connect with it equally.”
Anjali continues to struggle as an actor despite being one of the well-known new faces of the OTT platform. When questioned about her unfavorable audition experience, the actress revealed, “Recently casting people have started looking into your social media followers. There are genuine casting directors, but, nowadays, a lot of people are getting their roles because of their social media following, which I think is sad, for me and everyone else. People might be great actors but not have so many followers; I still have a decent number of followers. But why should they lose out on opportunities for numbers? This is a bit off but it’s okay, we do have good casting directors who look at the work.”
Prominent actors Makarand Deshpande and Manish Chaudhari appear in the major parts of "Shoorveer," which also features Regina Cassandra, Armaan Ralhan, Aadil Khan, Abhishek Saha, Kuldeep Sareen, Arif Zakaria, Faisal Rashid, and Sahil Mehta. Shoorveer will premiere on Disney+ Hotstar on July 15.
