‘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.
