'Ashish Vidyarthi Doesn't Try To Be Naseeruddin Shah or Big B'

Monday, February 22, 2016

Bollywood actor, Ashish Vidyarthi, could well be re-living his own real life tale on screen. Even though he has close to 200 films to his credit in the last 25 years, he is still craving for something big on screen. With ''Bollywood Diaries'', he is enacting the part of a main protagonist, Vishnu, who finds his true calling in the profession of being an actor, though only after retiring as a government servant.

For the actor who has been around since 1991, it has been one long journey which has seen him dabbling across various genres.

"Ashishji has seen a very tough phase in his career that involved a long period of struggle. He is such a known and wonderful actor but still so grounded. When he walks into the sets, he doesn't try to be a Naseeruddin Shah or an Amitabh Bachchan. He stays on to be truly humble even after doing 200 odd films," says director, K.D Satyam. This, despite the fact that he has an experience of working in films across languages like Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Bengali, Odia and English.

"The best part about him is that I see him as my character Vishnu," Satyam continues, "Even in real life, he is still not an out and out urban guy. He has that craving to do something extraordinary. He is known for his versatility but as an actor, he believes that the best is yet to come."

''I am particularly impressed by Ashish's story. It is wonderful and very poignant. Through him, you feel the tragedy and absurdity of the dreams that countless people like Vishnu carry in their hearts through the years," said film director, Sudhir Mishra.

The film is set to release on Friday.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Your work may need more personal involvement. There is a lot to do but not enough time. Do not be hesitant in asking for a privilege or a favor. Pursue details of important issues personally to avoid last minute problems. Appointments and schedules tend to get upset. Your mate or beloved will be in playful mood and expect you to respond favorably. But you seem to have someone else on your mind.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)The cards say that this week you must focus on your health. The path to this is to reduce stress. Do not get hyper and do not react too fast if things do not go your way. Your ally in these times will be the Earth Sign Virgo who will cool you down. Stay away from Leos if you can, they will only encourage you to be more reactive. The Card of the week is Tarot Key no: XV; The Devil. Sensationalizing rather than understanding will cause problems for you. Understand this and you will be better off.
