Anubhav Srivastava (born 9 March 1986) is an Indian filmmaker and motivational speaker. He has gained attention as the creator and director of Carve Your Destiny, a documentary film which researches the core qualities which make people "successful". Working independently, he has interviewed several prominent Indian personalities for his project and his efforts received attention in the Indian and UK media even though the film is still in production.


Born in India, Anubhav spent most of his early years in the capital city of New Delhi and studied at St. Columba's School.[1][2] He created the concept for Carve Your Destiny in 2007, at the age of 21, while pursuing his studies at a university in New Delhi. The project was originally conceived as a possible entry to an international inter-university competition. However, it was rejected at the university as the implementation of the idea was not considered feasible.[3] After the early disappointment, he then decided to pursue the film independently although he was initially doubted due to his young age, lack of relevant contacts and prior filmmaking experience.[4][5] Anubhav has stated in many interviews that he faced a large number of rejections from people he approached for the film.[6][7][8] In a BBC Radio interview in March 2010, he stated that he had conducted 11 interviews but faced 140 rejections.[9] He has currently moved to the United Kingdom to interview international achievers.[10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21] [22][23][24]
