Anmol was brought up by his mother single-handedly after she got separated from her husband, Ashok Thakeria, in 1994. During an interview, Anmol talked about his parents’ separation, he said,
My parents separated when my sister and I were very young. During our childhood, our mum had stopped taking up any work as she wanted to focus on our upbringing and education. She brought us up to us in an extremely grounded and simple manner. Sometimes it’s not an ideal situation when parents get separated. But in my case both our parents remain important in our lives. Today also, mum is open and nice to dad and vice versa so we are all like friends. As children, you need to be easy-going and supportive. There’s nothing to feel embarrassed about. Be positive. Life is beautiful and everyone has to make the most of it.”
Anmol’s younger sister, Paloma, is a social media influencer.
Anmol was in a relationship with a girl while he was studying in Los Angeles. In an interview, while talking about his girlfriend, he said,
It was probably a decade ago when I was studying in Los Angeles and was in a relationship with a girl from Mumbai. We were in a long-distance romance and would chat online. I had got a week off from university and without telling her, caught a long flight from LA to Mumbai, just to land up at her house after six months of not seeing her. I had to lie about my laptop failing and needing repairs just to make up an excuse for not being in touch for the duration of the long flight, to surprise her. I think that was the craziest thing I did, but she was also really excited that I took the effort.”
In 2014, he played a cameo role in the Punjabi film ‘Double Ke Trouble.’ He made a special appearance in the Sony TV serial ‘Dil Hi To Hai’ in 2014. Anmol debuted as an actor in the Hindi film ‘Tuesdays & Fridays’ (2021) as Varun, opposite the Indian actress Jhataleka Malhotra.

I did want to become an actor for a long time, but my mother insisted to finish the studies first. Then started my rounds of auditions. Bhansali sir was meeting a lot of guys and girls, and I was also sent for a meeting. I then sent him a few audition tapes of me acting and dancing, and then the film happened. There wasn’t any reference through my parents. Also, this film was directed by a newcomer, Taranveer Singh, was a non-film person. My co-star, Jhataleka Malhotra is also a non-film kid. Among us, only I happened to be one, we all got an equal opportunity. Every star kid’s journey is different, some have it easier, some have to go through more process.”
