Then he began working on a stage production of Spartacus. He was so enamored with the experience which led Anupam to work his way into playing a background actor for the production. From that point on he joined the Behroop theater group.
Anupam took the next step by applying to India’s prestigious National School of Drama. But before he continued that another opportunity revealed itself. A friend of his let him know about a Scholarship that was available to study acting at the Korean National University of Arts.
Anupam decided to move to South Korea and passed his required exam with flying colors, winning the scholarship. But he knew that his parents were unhappy about his decision, so didn’t reveal anything about that until he was accepted.

It was after returning from a trip to India in January 2020 that his life would change forever. When Anupam got back to Korea he was contacted by a Korean casting agency that specializes in foreign characters.
They requested Anupam send them a tape for an unspecified role. After he did so they brought him in for an audition with a casting director. That was the time when Anupam’s eventual breakthrough character Ali Abdul from “Squid Game”.
At first, Anupam wasn’t quite physically right for the role, so he bulked up gaining more than 10 pounds of muscle to give himself enough semblance of power. The next task for him was trying to familiarize himself with playing a Pakistani character.
To do so, he watched several BBC documentaries and YouTube videos that dive deep into the Pakistani migrant experience. Additionally, he spent time with Pakistani friends living in South Korea so that he could pick up some of the nuances of the Urdu language. Thanks to his hard work, Anupam was able to survive these three intense auditions.
In 2017 Anupam suffered a devastating loss when his father passed away back home in New Delhi.
