Ashlesha on getting ‘Rishtas’ in DM
Ashlesha Thakur aka Dhriti, has been receiving a lot of marriage proposals on social media and in her DMs. She revealed that she has been getting a lot of ‘Rishtas’ in her DMs and that people are sending her the creepiest and the sweetest of messages. Ashlesha added that while she is enjoying the attention, she is unsure about how true all of this is.
She essayed the role of Manoj Bajpayee’s daughter Dhriti in the show and in the second season her performance received a lot of praise.
Ashlesha’s take on the kidnapping scene from the movie
The actress also opens up on doing the intense kidnapping scene. She said that-
“It was exhausting and emotionally and mentally challenging for me. Getting kidnapped was something that was making me very nervous. I did not want to do that scene. I was telling Raj and Suparn sir, ‘let’s do it another day’. When I did the first take, I was confused whether I was doing the correct thing. When the directors supported me, I knew I was on the right track.”
Ashlesha expresses her experience of working in ‘The Family Man’ series on Twitter
Ashlesha had shared a bunch of pictures from the sets of The Family Man season 2 on her twitter handle. One picture even showed blood smeared on her face while in another photo, she is seen enjoying some ice cream in between takes.
She wrote in her tweet, “Bruises, sweat & tears matched with fits of laughter, high fives & lots of hugs. Our incredibly creative & generous cast, crew, outstanding fans-it’s all been beyond anything I could have imagined. The love is real & will keep it growing @rajndk @Suparn @sumank @BajpayeeManoj.”
