Anisa Butt


I studied Drama (performance) at Queen Mary's University of London, and started by doing a number of fringe plays. I was part of Flex FX Dance Company, as an actor/dancer for 2 years and performed at venues such as The Royal Albert Hall, London. I auditioned for a Bollywood Film in London, which opened the door to other opportunities in India, and hence travel a lot between London and India now, and have agents in both countries. My career essentially took off on TV for Disney India, with the series 'Ishaan,' produced by Red Chillies Idiot Box. Amongst commercials, theatre, i have also got the opportunity to be part of wonderful features, such as Bollywood's "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Half Girlfriend and international film Brahman Naman, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival (In Competition in the World Dramatic Section) in January 2016 and was picked up by Netflix for distribution. Other than acting, i have been an avid poet, and occasional blog writer, for websites like Female Hustlers, and now the Big Picture film Club. My passions include dance, fitness, everything movie related and everything hustle!
