Anirudh found the role of an autistic boy
challenging and interesting so he chose to be a part of the story in Yeh Hai Aashiqui
which was a cameo role. When asked Anirudh about the same, he maintains, "I
don't believe in doing cameo or episodic but this story was special and

He says that post his show Housewife... he got busy with theater and thereafter was hosting shows, "After my daily soap, I was busy with theater and even today I'm in Bangalore for the same. It's not that I had been out of action as I was hosting shows like Star Diwali and curtain raiser of Zee Rishtey Awards and also had been doing ads. Actually I've become very choosy when it comes to selecting the roles."
Further he elaborated saying, "I've always been a theater person and have been associated with the National School of Drama and it always feels good to go back to it. It's like polishing my acting skills and I am happy doing that till I get a good role on small or big screen. Even after that I would never leave theater as this is the place from where I started my acting career."
When asked Anirudh about his upcoming plans, he says, "On TV as of now there is nothing but on big screen yes I'm doing a film as a lead but again can't talk about it. Also there is an item song in Satish Kaushik's film Gangs of Ghosts starring Sharman Joshi and Mahi Gill. It's a club number filmed in a club of ghosts and I'm the lead dancer."
Well, Anirudh we wish you all the very best for your future endeavors!
