- In 2022, Anees was not allowed to fly to Europe to take part in the competition due to visa issues and a lack of sponsors; however, his contenders, Murali Sreeshankar and Jeswin Aldrin competed in Europe. In an interview, he said,
I wanted to compete overseas as well. But, my visa did not come through. I had shortlisted two competitions for 21st May and 29th May, but could not travel. The officials were not satisfied with my whereabouts between those eight days and hence did not grant me the visa. I cannot really tell how they (Sreeshankar and Anees) got the visa. I can only assume that it’s because both of them have sponsors backing them. I currently don’t have any private entity backing me.” The Bridge
