Asha Negi: “It Pinched Me Hard When Trolls Called Me Jobless”
If you have been missing Asha Negi in action, then stream her latest web series, Baarish on AltBalaji. The actress makes her digital debut and returns to entertain audience with it. We got talking to Asha Negi about the web series and also asked her about her journey so far.

The beautiful actress, who is all excited about Baarish, spoke about how she made judgement errors in choosing projects after Pavitra Rishta. Asha explained how she tried her best to set things rolling in her career but wasn’t successful with the shows she chose. “As an actor I gave my 100% but those were not fresh shows. The two shows I worked in after Pavitra Rishta, were replacements for other actresses. And unfortunately they just didn't work. I took up the shows with high expectations but it didn't turn the way I wanted it to. Honestly, I don’t regret it but it surely taught me to be careful for my next projects.” Asha told us.

This was the time when Asha Negi faced criticism on social media and was often attacked by trolls. While speaking about the worst comment she has ever come across till now, Asha said, people used to call her "jobless" and it affected her a lot. The actress said, “There was a phase when I was not doing anything solid in fiction, and people started calling me jobless. I used to feel like asking them, ‘who are you?’ Honestly, their comments made me doubt myself and often raised the question in my mind, “Am I actually jobless?”And it hits you hard and does mess with your brain. But with time I have learnt to ignore and concentrate on my work. You must read comments but just to laugh it out.”
