VERSATILE actor Ashish Sharma has shown off his remarkable range in a wide array of projects and won fans around the world. These include a group of friends in South India
who started a fan club dedicated to him. Eastern Eye caught up with them to find out more…

What made you set up the fan club?
We realised Ashish has many South Indian admirers, especially Tamil fans like us. So we thought, why not have a platform to connect with all those fans and then we expanded
further. So today it is not just restricted to Tamil fans. So we interact in Tamil with Tamil fans and in English with other Ashishians.

Tell us more about your fan club?
Our fan club is basically a means to connect and interact with Ashishians using information, edits and chats along with spreading our appreciation of Ashish. Sometimes we translate his tweets (he posts Hindi poems and tweets often). We support Ashish and his projects. When he is not onscreen, we discuss his previous work and future possibilities.

What has been your best moment?
Post Siya Ke Ram we had to wait for six long months before getting news about Prithvi Vallabh. We managed to get a peek of his new look for it and were so overjoyed to share it on our fan club. Also we got our first reply from Ashish recently as we dug out one of his old videos and he was happy watching it.

What is the best thing you like about Ashish Sharma?
We like Ashish both as an actor and a human being. We trust his choices and he never disappoints us. Offscreen he is just like any of us. His social media accounts don’t look
like that of a celebrity. He is a complete family man!

What is your favourite work Ashish has done?
It’s difficult to choose one. Be it Avdhesh, Chandragupta Maurya, Ranveer, Rudra, Ram or Prithvi Vallabh, he breathed life into all these roles. He won Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and that
gave us immense happiness. Now we are excited to watch his movie Khejdi.

What is your definition of a true fan?
A true fan supports and trusts their favourite unconditionally.
