Anjli Mohindra grew up in Nottingham and trained at The Television Workshop. Her first major television role was as Rani Chandra in The Sarah Jane Adventures, aged just 19, a role she played for four years. She then had supporting roles in several popular shows, including Cucumber (Channel 4), written by Russell T Davies; Paranoid (Netflix); The Boy with the Topknot (BBC Two); and Bancroft (ITV).
Perhaps her highest profile role to date was as the duplicitous Nadia in the multi BAFTA and Golden Globe-nominated Bodyguard (BBC/Netflix), Jed Mercurio’s thriller that gripped the nation in 2018. The same year, Anjli starred alongside Tom Riley in ITV crime drama Dark Heart and guested in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (Sky One). Showing a talent for the macabre, she starred in Mark Gatiss’ take on the classic Christmas ghost story, The Dead Room (BBC Four), alongside Simon Callow.
In 2019, Anjli appeared in new drama Wild Bill (ITV), starring opposite Hollywood legend Rob Lowe and in 2020 she appeared as Tiffany ‘Doc Doc’ Docherty alongside Suranne Jones in Vigil (BBC) Tom Edge’s six-part edge of the seat thriller. Anjli is about to take the lead, alongside Paapa Essiedu, in brand new thriller Extinction (Sky), described as a "gripping exploration of memory, fate, and the limits of love".
Anjli has made strides to develop her voice as a writer, winning a place on the Royal Court’s Young Writers’ Programme. In the midst of the pandemic she made her writing debut with a new short film The People Under the Moon (2020) produced entirely during lockdown and as part of the Virtual Collaborators series launched by actor/writer Danusia Samal.
