I auditioned for Jamtara: Sabka Number Ayega but it took three years to release. In 2014-15 I even thought of quitting and even did a part-time business which failed.

But I got full support from my brother, sister and friends. Finally, the release of Jamtara (2020) turned the tide. Meanwhile, actors like Amit Sial, whom I consider my mentor, boosted me.”

- In an interview, Anshuman shared his experience while working with a few Indian directors. He said,
As an actor, I do give my best and work on my character and all the three directors I have worked with have been wonderful. I strictly go by their vision as I honestly believe that cinema (or series) is a director’s medium. Last year, after the release, the first season lockdown happened and everything came to a standstill. In that period, I religiously worked on my craft. This time, I had to go to my hometown, Mor Mokama (near Patna) after a tragedy happened in the family. So, I am with them and hope to go back as things improve and shooting starts.”
