‘Haven’t ex­pe­ri­enced celebrity star­dom yet’

She is still best re­mem­bered by her fans as Tosti from her show Saas Bina Sa­sural but ac­tor

Aish­warya Sakhuja (right) says she has yet to face the kind of star­dom that tele­vi­sion ac­tors ex­pe­ri­ence.

“I still haven’t ex­pe­ri­enced celebrity star­dom. I am not try­ing to sound mod­est. Very early on in my ca­reer I re­alised it is all so tem­po­rary. When I walk out of the van­ity van, I get a lot of at­ten­tion, but there are those lull months when I am not do­ing any­thing and peo­ple ask­ing me ‘what next’ and you don’t know what to say,” says Aish­warya.

The ac­tor feels the con­nec­tion be­tween her and her au­di­ence still has space of im­prove­ment. “Peo­ple still don’t know me as an ac­tor. They know me as my char­ac­ter Tosti which will be for­got­ten in some years. I still have to make a per­ma­nent place in peo­ple’s heart,” she says. How­ever, she does ac­cept that main­tain­ing a place in the in­dus­try has be­come even more dif­fi­cult. “Ev­ery­day, new­com­ers are re­plac­ing us. Show­mak­ers are con­stantly de­mand­ing new faces,” she says.
