Hello Mumbai News Entertainment Desk :
In our Entertainment Desk we are introducing you the aspiring Actor Ashish Singh, Casting Director and Actor who shares his Bollywood Journey with Hello Mumbai News Reporter Janvi S. Panjwani.
There is no doubt that the dazzling World of Glamour and Neons lures aspirants for stardom. Some make it, while some not as the acting arena is not a bed of roses initially.
One aspirant for stardom is Meerut, U.P born Ashish Singh. He was brought up in Delhi and is now settled in Mumbai.
After schooling from Meerut Public School Meerut, Ashish completed his graduation and pursued BCA from CCS University.
Notably, in his childhood, the acting bug bit him.
Speaking to Hello Mumbai News, Ashish feels that the very definition of acting gives him a boost, motivation and goose bumps. He started acting in School, colleges, plays, dramas, and dabbled into all that mattered to become.
So he decided to pursue his career in acting and reached the Mecca of Hindi Films, Mumbai to pursue chosen acting career. He landed in Mumbai with a dream to become a good actor since everyone told him that he is blessed with the looks of an actor and to try his luck.
To get moulded as a perfect actor he enrolled himself in an acting institute called “Kreating Characters” and completed the course. He had etched in his mind that he will remain in Mumbai till he gets a break in acting.
Simultaneously, he started to impart training in gyms as a Personal trainer as he is a certified trainer and a dietician.
Despite giving auditions he was being rejected. But he believed in Shah Rukh Khan’s quote that rejection will instill confidence and the more you get rejected you will reach your heights.
For almost 2 years he gave auditions, but got rejected fromall corners resulting in his moral going down . So he decided to leave this industry. He firmly believes that destiny has other plans for him.
He chanced to meet a casting director Vishal Sharma in his gym to whom he started giving training. Vishal is also from Delhi and he had shared a great bonding with him and told him about his issues.
His brother a mentor, asked him to take up Casting and that he will do something in this industry. He will get to know everything about this industry and side by side give auditions.
In the year 2016 he started doing casting under him and gradually learnt the system of casting in Optimystix India pvt. ltd. as a casting associate and his journey as a casting director and organised more than 50 TV shows.
Having said all, internal actor was constantly asking him to work in front of the camera. So started giving auditions again. He was fortunate to have got an assignment from Sab TV through Beyond Dreams Production. But ironically, it got scrapped amid first lockdown. He got disappointed and packed his bag to leave Mumbai to his home town with a firm decision not to come back again. This happened with him and his mother asked him to revert what for what he was born.
His many assignments as an actor have been for IPS Diary for DD National
Code Red For colours TV

Recently he completed an ad film for Imperial Blue.
