Quoting Mr. Subhash Ghai on Anurag
“The moment I needed a new hero for Black & White, I immediately called for a file with the pictures and details of the Pune Film Institute’s first batch acting students, the very first look at Anurag’s photo made me select him. I have nurtured a confidence in actors who are trained for two long years and are serious in making it Big. I needed no auditions from him, I cast him immediately. He proved his worth and I am extremely pround of him today, for showing his talent and intelligence with such diligence and humility, he is a good person. After Black & White I am sure Anurag will make it very big. I wish him all my luck, today and always.”
