2) Ashish did not follow the traditional path to learn acting. He created his own method of acting. In his opinion everyone has different equtions of understanding things -

"As a student of acting I was trained in different styles and approaches, but I always differed on one thing. That is, how can we generalize, or say that this particular theory works for everyone? I believe it is so individualistic—what works for me need not work for somebody else. So I believe every actor has to find his or her own method or approach that works the best for them. I agree or disagree with the various theories, be it Stanislavasky, Miesner, Adler, or Brecht. I assorted what worked for me, and made my own individual approach."

3) Proudest moment as an actor - "When my dad called me after watching one of the episodes of Rangrasiya (the Vandemataram sequence), and said, ‘Aaj tum ek paripakv abhineta lage mujhe.

4) Fondest memory of acting school - "For the final presentation, we were supposed to do a play. I [had been] doing theatre before I joined Actor Prepares. Andha Yug was one of the plays I could never do. Playing Ashvathama was my unfulfilled desire, and [one day] our teacher came and announced that we would be doing Andha Yug. I looked up with a twinkle and nervousness… Names were called, and their respective characters. Finally he announced, ‘Ashish you’re doing Ashvathama,’ and I was literally choked with excitement."

5) How he met the love of his life - Ashish felt the eternal connection once and for all when he met 'Qubool Hai' fame Archana Taide - "I was shooting near Vadodara for Chandragupta Maurya and she was part of Mahima Shanidev Ki, shooting was happening in same studio. We had a director friend in common through whom we met on the sets, and that was our first meeting and we enjoyed each other's company.
