you & me
They say that positivity really opens up ways for people. Anas Ali Imran is among a few actors who see nothing but positivity even in the failures that come in life. He went for the Bridal Couture Week auditions and after getting very close to be selected he was dropped, which he took as a motivation and returned with a bang and entered in the modelling world.
He has done a number of commercials and from commercials he started getting offers for serials. In a short span of time, he has acted in many mainstream serials.
