Tele­vi­sion ac­tor Aashka

Go­ra­dia (above), who has been ac­tively work­ing in the tele­vi­sion in­dus­try for the last 15 years, at times feels like quit­ting but a thought keeps her go­ing. “Some­times you want to take a break or try some­thing new. But then you re­alise that this ca­reer is some­thing that I have put in so many years to build, and I don’t need to take a break from it,” says Aashka, who has done tele­vi­sion shows such as Kkusum, Kahiin To Hoga, Mere Apne, Laagi Tu­jhse La­gan and Baal Veer.

Aashka adds that when­ever she reaches a sat­u­ra­tion point, she talks to her­self. “I tell my­self, ‘turn around and look at what you have built and why do you need to be sat­u­rated from some­thing that you have made on your own’. I start feel­ing that this is my lit­tle em­pire and this is what I own, so I don’t have to go away from it.”

Although, Aashka has never taken a sab­bat­i­cal from her act­ing ca­reer, Aashka says, she has mas­tered the art of get­ting in and out of her char­ac­ters.

“After do­ing tele­vi­sion for years, I can say that the mo­ment we cross 100 episodes, we learn to switch on and switch off. From 9am, you are play­ing a par­tic­u­lar char­ac­ter and then you switch after 9pm it’s part of your daily rou­tine. So, our lives are al­ways on a switch on and switch off mode,” she adds.
