But, soon Ashish realized that he was not comfortable “doing that work”.

Talking about the transition from being a villain to one who spreads positivity and positivity, Ashish highlights that actors are often put in a box. However, he also said that he refused to abide by it which helped to save him from being typecast in the film industry. He further outlined his multifaceted and remarkable work in more than ten languages, emphasizing that “I never saw myself in a cage.”

Sharing the ups and downs of his acting journey, Ashish admits that in his 30-year career, he has seen phases where he had no work left to do. Ashish, on the other hand, said that there was a time when he worked tirelessly and had enough projects.

He told HT, “The careers of actors go ahead. There are times when we have an abundance of work and there are times when there is hardly any work. In a career spanning 30 years, having done around 240 films , I have seen periods of full, continuous, daily work as well as no work. Actors do not always choose how their career progresses. It all depends on what can be offered, what is done In fact, there was a period of about five years long before the pandemic that I had zero films. I didn’t face the camera for two years. When the pandemic came, people said work stopped. Earlier I saw it. All the actors have seen it. People call you and you are at home and they ask ‘Shooting has been cancelled?’ And someone like me would say ‘I don’t have any shoots’,” he says.

He revealed that just five years before the pandemic hit, he had zero offers and did not face the camera for two years. Now, Ashish said that he has many projects in the line and hence he will stop vlogging or giving motivational speeches.
