THINGS I DO
The acting bug hit me pretty young. I was 12 years old when I decided I wanted to pursue this as a career. So far it has been quite the journey! and a roller-coaster working in the UK and internationally too.
I have loved writing from a young age, specifically poetry, and now I have ventured into the spoken word space as well. I always find it an amazing creative outlet, and love expressing myself through words.
The podcast @unplugwithani started as a side hustle, and now I have amazing guests on the show from all over the world. The main themes of the show include mindset, motivation, spirituality and self improvement.
For those of you wanting to get a taste of what this is like, I have created a 12 week program called 'Finding yourself,' a transformative program centered around tapping into your best self, and creating new boundaries whilst thriving with the focus on developing more self love.
If your an artist looking to work on your limiting beliefs, this is a great programme for you!
A BIT ABOUT WHAT I DO
Purpose driven transformation
Coaching has probably been a calling like forever! Somewhere the larger purpose to everything I do comes down to leaving an impact. I've realized that I have this opportunity not only through my art and work as an Actor, having incredible conversations through my podcast, but also through working more personally with people. It is so rewarding because it isn't about creating a teacher, student relationship but a safe space for growth, and I definitely grow as I help other's grow.
I have been fortunate enough to be a content writer on the Big Picture Film Club, as well as sites such www.femalehustlers.com. Writing has always been something I have thoroughly enjoyed, specifically poetry! Follow on IG for all my spoken word updates :) Something special in the works soon! 2021
Unplug with Ani
I started the podcast, out of a passion for connecting with my following. I am also a people lover, and am passionate about making a difference. Studying Sociology and Psychology has also contributed to making me fascinated with human behaviour. What a beautiful journey this has been so far connecting with people from all over the world.

Man, so for as long as I can remember, I have wanted to act and perform. The bug hit me bad in drama class at school, post an improv class to be precise! I remember doing a stage version of 'Titanic,' and learning a basic waltz (which I still remember till date!) Its crazy how things stay with you.
From being part of a huge Disney India show called "Ishaan," (kinda like a high school musical) to Hindi features like 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani', to indie movies like 'Brahman Naman' on Netflix, to plays, commercials and shorts, I am so grateful for this gift and for a being a student of this craft. I hope I continue to get projects that inspire me, and move you as an audience, and that I can play for the rest of my life. I wanna leave everything on the dance floor.
Having completed courses with The Academy of Modern Applied Psychology as a life coach practitioner and considering my on going love affair and respect of psychology, which has truly transformed me from the inside, I want to share that knowledge with other's, to enable them to feel more empowered. Though the time period is tailored to a client, I highly encourage 3-6 months in duration, to exemplify the benefit. This can be discussed in the initial consultation.

WHAT CLIENTS, COLLEAGUES AND LISTENERS HAVE TO SAY
"Anisa is a woman that inspires. In the time that I have known Anisa, I have come to know her as a woman of dedication, passion and perseverance. Her strength of character shines through whatever she takes on, be it her podcasts, dancing or her performances. She stands for what she believes in and believes in what she stands for. Not only is she talented, she is also one of the most kind and caring persons that I have ever met. What stands out the most to me about Anisa, is her constant evolution. She grows both as an artist and as a person with each passing day."
Writer and Filmmaker
"It’s always great working with Anisa, her curiosity and tenacity informs her layered approach to character study and the result is an engaging and original performance. Coupled with her professionalism on set and stage, means its always a collaborative adventure when storytelling with Anisa!"
"Having observed Anisa from near and afar for a few years now, I can say that she one of the most hard-working, motivated, driven and grounded women I know. While her ambitions soar high, she keeps her eyes to the ground, focused and intentional about everything she puts her hand to. She’s constantly improving herself — sharpening her skill and craft, learning the new and staying ahead. Her faith and her optimistic outlook on life are evident in the way she approaches every single assignment she works on. She’s the kind of person who doesn’t start something and abandon it — she gives it all she’s got, she sees it through and she makes it better and stronger with time. I’m privileged to know her and I love watching her grow with every new assignment she works on!"
"What I love most about working with Ani is that she truly cares about people. I feel like she is a real cheerleader for my own success! My work with her has opened the door to past experiences that created a series of limiting beliefs, but instead of just focusing there, she has helped me see that my desires and dreams are achievable and that I have the power to make it happen. I'm inspired and motivated in a way that I couldn't have imagined before! I credit her positive energy, authentic space for listening, and her encouragement on real situations in my life with helping me create lasting changes. Ani is responsive, supportive, and genuine! I would recommend personal coaching with her to anyone looking to take themselves to the next level!"
"Anisa is true inspiration! I have known her personally and professionally for many years and her perseverance, hard work, creativity and ability to reinvent herself, innovate and grow is second to none. Beyond her journey of being such a talented and versatile actress across Mumbai and London, she has now carved out a place for herself with her super engaging podcast covering such a wide range of guests from all walks of life, talking about their stories. Her curiosity and deep understanding and love for people and her happy nature make it a bliss to work with her."
