Anirudh Pisharody is a producer and actor. Born in India and raised in Austin, Texas, he brings small-town charm to Hollywood productions.
Though a cinephile from young, strict cultural and parental pressure drove him on a medical path. After graduating from the The University of Texas at Austin in Public Health and a short stint in healthcare finance in Washington D.C, Anirudh quickly realized it was now or never to chase his dreams. In movie-like fashion, he packed up his life in a suitcase and moved to sunny Los Angeles. Using his financial and managerial background and exceptional leadership skills, he founded Black Velvet Films.
Since then, Anirudh has had the pleasure of working on numerous narrative films, music videos, and industrial spots. His notable career as an actor has allowed him to develop special relationships to take any project to the next level and achieve international appeal.
I have been in the industry since 2017.
