What made you set up the fan club?

We post everything on Ashish including about his shows, his achievements and to encourage voting for him when polls happen. It is also a portal to reach the love of Arabs to him, which we could do thankfully.
What has been your most memorable moment from the club?
There are many. The first time we realised Ashish knew about us was in his birthday segment last year and he thanked us. When Ashish answered our question on his radio interview with Raj Baddan. Also when he replied to us and encouraged our Ashish Sharma library initiative recently.
