She was part of the crime web series Undekhi (2020) but what made the audience sit up and take notice was her role as Purva, an obsessed lover and sinister daughter of an ominous politician (Saurabh Shukla), in Netflix's hit thriller Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein.

For a change, it was the male lead (Tahir Raj Bhasin) who was portrayed as the victim of her whims and fancies. For anyone who has seen the series, Anchal establishes herself as a powerful, thinking actor who stands out in a sea of talent in the industry. It would be but natural to see comparisons with her coming up whenever a top actress fails at delivering on similar roles in the future, because merely screaming, shouting and twisting your neck do not make an obsessive lover.
