Anand is an Indian film actor who has acted in Indian regional films. The actor's biggest film til date is Mani Ratnam's comedy thriller film Thiruda Thiruda, but unlike his co-stars of that film, it failed to give him a breakthrough. He has also played second lead roles and supporting characters in several films including Kamal Haasan's Sathya and Vijayakanth's Poonthotta Kaavalkaaran. His brother Bharat Arun played international cricket for India.

After his stint in films, he moved on to appear in Tamil television serials including Idhayam.
