MUMBAI: Asha Negi became a household name post her stint as Purvi Deshmukh in Pavitra Rishta. The actress has been a part of two web series namely Baarish and Abhay 2. During the release of Baarish, Asha went to reveal how naive she was when she first began acting.
She explained that when she initially joined the cast of Bade Acche Lagte Hain, she would ‘fumble’ a lot. The reason was that she didn’t really have an acting or theatre background. She never attended any workshops in the past. She just knew that she wanted to act and hence landed in the city of Mumbai.
However, she received immense support from those around her. According to Asha, their support helped her mould her career. They guided her to be a kind person, as many senior actors at some point lose patience but this wasn’t the case with her and it definitely helped her in the long run.
During the same interaction, she opened up about her downfall when her shows weren’t doing well on TV. She became demotivated towards her career. At this time, she thought her acting career was over. She dealt with depression and was eating a lot which resulted in her gaining weight. However, the phrase ‘Time heals everything’ worked aptly for her.
When it comes to being surrounded by the right people, Asha Negi feels that she is very lucky. As she was encircled with good people including ex-boyfriend Rithvik Dhanjani who guided her through all the ups and downs.
