Highlight Story

She has been wearing greasepaint from a tender age and featured as a child artist in horror thriler Phoonk 2 and drama Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna to name a few.

Now a grown up girl, Ahsaas Channa says this is what she had always wanted to be — an actor.

“It was like I knew I had to become an actress right from when I was in my mother’s womb. I was really impressed by the industry and I knew that I had to be a part of it...in case I am not able to make it as an actress, I will become a director. I just want to be associated with the industry,” she said.

As a child artist she worked in Aryan, My Friend Ganesha, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna and Vaastu Shastra. But Channa has not regrets and feels those roles helped her become a better actor. “I don’t regret anything that I have done. In fact, I am really happy with my work. I am extremely proud of it,” said the class eighth student. The actor can be seen in the TV show Devon Ke Dev Mahadev, at present and said that she was keen to do a mythological show. “I haven’t done anything like this before. I love the way they dress up and talk on the show,” she said.

Despite being a part of showbiz, she still gets “scared” before a long scene or a stunt. “But after a while, it gets ok,” she added.
And what about studies? “I make sure not to neglect my studies. I take my books along with me on the sets and try and complete my homework between shots. Also, I make sure not to get into any daily soap where I have to shoot daily,” she said.
