Anshuman Jha is one lucky guy – after making his debut in Love Sex Aur Dhoka with National Award-winning director, Dibakar Bannerjee, he’s gone on to work with two more directors who are winners of National Awards! He has Yeh Hai Bakrapur coming up next, directed by Janaki Vishwanathan (who won the award for her Tamil film, Kutty); and Chauranga, directed by Onir (who previously won for I Am). After his debut, Anshuman has been busy with theatre; however, he intentionally took a sabbatical for two years and completed four films in that time – Yeh Hai Bakrapur (May 9th), Fugly (June 13th), X (August), and Chauranga (September).
His directors, too, have only good things to say about him:
Janaki Vishwanathan: “On screen Anshuman is ordinarily relatable yet extraordinarily charming. He’s the ideal Jaffar for YHB.”
Dibakar Bannerjee: “Anshuman has a strange awkwardness which I find endearing.”
Onir: “The energy which Anshuman brings to a character is infectious and touched not just the co-actors but the crew of Chauranga as well. Absolute pleasure to work with.”
Psst! The actor is most excited about Yeh Hai Bakrapur, which was an official selection at MAMI 2013 & at the Goteburg Film Fest in Sweden. Check out the romantic track from their film below:
