We review the various aspects of anisotropic quark-gluon plasma (AQGP) that have recently been discussed by a number of authors. In particular, we focus on the electromagnetic probes of AQGP, inter quark potential, quarkonium states in AQGP, and the nuclear modifications factor of various bottomonium states using this potential. In this context, we will also discuss the radiative energy loss of partons and nuclear modification factor of light hadrons in the context of AQGP. The features of the wake potential and charge density due to the passage of jet in AQGP will also be demonstrated.
