A girl with a non-Bollywood background, with big dreams in her eyes, moving from a small city to dream city Mumbai, and achieving goals after years of hard-work is a dream come true story.
After felicitated as the Iconic female actress by the Mid-day International Showbiz Awards, Anamika says, “I love to perform different and challenging roles and since I moved to Mumbai, this city gave me hard time but also many opportunities. 2021 is the best year for me so far. Director of the series Heena Dsouza gave me the chance of playing Pooja in Mukesh Jasoos, which is a very greyish character with many shades. I am truly grateful to Mid-day for felicitating me with Iconic Female Actress Award. When I was receiving the award from Vivek Oberoi in Dubai, that was a proud moment for me and for my parents too. In that moment, every hardship I faced in the past felt worth. I am really thankful to Mid-day, Humara Movies, Disney plus Hotstar and all the people for loving and supporting my work”
