According to the sources, the young actor was very ecstatic about his role in Wazir as an ATS Officer. As soon as he was selected for the role, he began working on his character immediately. He went from learning his Punjabi dialect, to tying on a turban and being prim and proper. He spent time at a friends place to learn how to tie a turban, just to get a feel of it. He took the experience to a whole other level. Anjum also traveled from Malad to Bandra to test his comfort and the reaction of the people.  Initially, he felt uncomfortable and would have headaches because of the weight of the turban, but eventually got accustomed to it.
