Asha Negi has been making headlines for her portrayal in ALTBalaji’s Baarish 2 alongside Sharman Joshi. Right from her lip-lock scene in the series to her acting chops, Asha has won hearts for her part in Baarish 2.
Asha Negi recently made headlines after she gave hints to confirm her breakup with longtime beau, Rithvik Dhanjani. The actress has now opened up about the dark phase of her life when 2 of her shows did not work well. Revealing how she gained weight because of her battle with depression, Asha has shed light on her ordeal.
Speaking to Pinkvilla in her latest episode, Asha Negi said that the failure of two consecutive shows has now made her a lot more choosy in terms of signing shows. “Emotions did ride high when the two shows didn’t work. When the first show did not work, I was like ‘it is okay, maybe I have had a good career in the past, so one not working is okay.’ But then the next also did not work and I was really disheartened. I was so demotivated. I thought it is over for me. I was very depressed at that time. I had also put on weight because I was eating so much because of depression. It did hamper my mental peace and confidence.”
Asha Negi further said, “I let it happen and went through that feeling. With time, I healed and realised that I am an actor and here to perform and it is okay if my projects did not work, but I can be a little selective with my projects. I won’t pick up any project for the heck of it. That’s why I took a long break because nothing good was offered to me. I am glad it happened. You know, when I had to come to Mumbai, I got projects back to back without much struggle despite my inexperience. I did not see struggle then, so, I feel this is when I struggled. I collected myself then, and with time, I evolved as an actor and person.”
Meanwhile, fans of Asha Negi and Rithvik Dhanjani were heartbroken when breakup rumours of the couple began doing rounds. Eventually when Asha indirectly confirmed their split, several fans even went on to say that they had lost faith in the whole concept of true love after the couple seems to have parted ways.
