“Even today many people refer to me as Abhay. So, with Chase I am trying to establish Anuj Saxena,” the actor said in an interview.

Chase, which will be released by November end is produced by Anuj’s production house Maverick and also stars Udita Goswami in the lead. It is being directed by Jagmohan Mundhra.

The film, which was earlier titled Begunaah, is the story of a man who is punished for a crime he did not commit and his struggle to prove his innocence.

Anuj, who has an MBBS degree started his acting career through television with a show on Doordarshan called Aasman Se Aaagey, also starring Amrita Singh and Pankaj Kapoor. He later went on to become a part of popular daily soaps like Kkusum, Kumkum, Kora Kaagaz and Saara Aakash among others.

However, he left television in 2006 when Kkusum completed 1,000 episodes.

“After doing five years of Kkusum, it was like doing the same thing again and again. Everyone has to move on in life and take a decision. I don’t have any regrets,” said Anuj, whose first film under his production house was Aloo Chaat, starring Aftab Shivdasani and Aamna Sharif.
