Anil P. Bajaj – A: Wow, thank you for saying multi-talented. Motivation always for an artist is to get recognized for their talent, and for me, it’s to get recognized in India as well since I left India to migrate to the USA to make it in a place where I knew no one and only $42 in my pocket. To make it and to get to the highest honors is my inspiration. My struggle to get there is one of my inspirations and my motivation comes from the people that made it in spite of all odds against them. 

As an actor, I have always admired the intensity of Al Pacino and Marlon Brando, the versatility of  Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep, and the character portrayals of Jack Nicholson and Denzel Washington. As a director Alfred Hitchcock, Satyajit Ray, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Spike Lee, and many many more to mention  As a writer, Oliver Stone, David Mamet, and Spike Lee, to name a few.

In my spare time I like to study my craft and visualize and manifest what I want to achieve.  My hidden talent really is the fact that I understand eastern and western culture equally well. Born and raised in India and living in the United States for half of my life, I understand both cultures well and I understand what makes Southeast Asians’ hearts tick and what North Americans enjoy.
