Asha Negi: Overwhelmed with the love I got for Ludo


This is why I am really thankful to the lockdown. I think there were lot of fire mishaps that happened around the world. Some were quite huge, and may be if I could, I would like to change that. Since you resumed work amid the pandemic, tell us about the experience? Honestly, there has been no exciting offer that came my way. (Photo: Asha Negi/Instagram)
After ruling television, Asha Negi made her mark in the digital space this year. And of it was amazing. However, I took it as a test, and learnt a lot from the experience. Initially, we were not used to it, and would keep sanitising ourselves every hour. There are so many things. I think the year was pretty kind to me. They were so excited and took efforts to make me feel loved. Apart from that I think I really want the aliens to come. I don’t know why a lot of people don’t do it as it’s quite therapeutic. I was busy cooking, painting, watching shows.

Besides the pandemic, if you could change one thing about 2020 what would that be? Now that you look back, which has been the closest to your heart? I will not lie, I have also done that, and this year, for a change, I took out time and spent days with them. While Baarish and Abhay were also great parts, I was just overwhelmed with the love I got for Ludo. Not just because it was my first film but because of the director and my co-stars, Ludo will always be very special to me. In an exclusive chat with indianexpress.com, Asha Negi talks about the past year, why she was happy during the lockdown and her fantasy to have aliens living with humans. Anyone who feels they are spending way too much time checking other people on Instagram and Twitter, should delete the apps. I was also hooked on to Mad Men. What are your expectations from 2021? Excerpts from the conversation…

As I told you, 2020 wasn’t so bad for me. Although, I must add that I no longer have patience to work on never ending projects. Also, I received some great feedback for the film. While most celebs were connecting with fans via social media, you actually took a sabbatical from all that. The thing is that we just become so addicted to social media sometimes, that throughout the day we are only scrolling on the phone. What has kept Asha Negi away from television all this while? Neither anyone was calling me to meet them or coming home as everyone was locked in their own houses. It could have been the year for your big screen debut with Ludo but it released on Netflix due to the pandemic. Also, most of us tend to take our families for granted, and not spend enough time with them. Even though it wasn’t on the big screen, my fans made sure to make its release so special. It does take a toll on you and your mental health.

All your projects had you play very different characters. They haven’t arrived yet as the people of earth are not ready for it. I loved Paatal Lok.

What were the kind of shows you watched? I am just thankful to each one of them for their selfless love. Yes, it was tough, as a lot was happening. That one should find happiness in the smallest of things. However, we did get used to it, and I guess it’s going to be the new normal for all of us. With three big releases – Baarish 2, Abhay 2 and Ludo, the actor is back in the grind after a short break. There were so many that I can’t remember all the names right now. I was so happy (laughs). The year was mentally exhausting for most of us, and you also had a setback with your relationship. What has been the biggest learning for you in 2020? While she rose to newer heights in 2020, Negi’s personal life saw a hard time as she parted ways with longtime boyfriend Rithvik Dhanjani. The first time I was told about it, I was a little disheartened. The universe can teach us whatever it has without it also. What was the thought behind it’? It was really weird to maintain social distancing on sets, and especially during a scene. Given that you are not a very social person, was the lockdown experience easy for you?

Asha Negi It would be so much fun. I had some good web series, and of course, my first film released. How was 2020 for you?https://images.indianexpress.com/2020/08/1×1.png
Frankly, it wasn’t bad when it came to work. I would like to do a finite show, with an exciting script. I would be more than happy to be back provided I get the desired parts. This is why I took a break to give my brain a break. Of course, I want the virus to go away now. I really like the kind of shows that Jennifer Winget does. It would be a refreshing break. It was a great experience and a really happy time. And especially since it was the lockdown, we were spending too much time on these apps, and it was really not healthy. 📣 The Indian Express is now on Telegram. Any regrets about that? It’s high time they come in, and we could all live together.
