Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani marked Anjali’s Bollywood debut. The actress is happy to have spread the message of body positivity through her character in the film. In an interview with the Hindustan Times, she opened up about the roles she wants to play. She said, “Whatever comes next for me, I want to be very careful in what I’m choosing so that I’m not stereotyped. I hope I get to play something more challenging and unbelievably different, and not what filmmakers and audiences already expect from me. I want to play different parts, whatever it takes.”

Speaking about the toxic beauty standards in the film industry, she said, “It’s not just the showbiz industry, even the audiences will not be very happy with a heroine if she looks like me. It is a very hypocritical world that we live in. Everybody wants to see a toned body and fair skin on screen. Sabse zyada seetiyaan item number par hi bajti hain. That is the world we live in and that is the truth nobody wants to accept.”
