, better known
as Tara from Saat Phere, is in no hurry to prove herself. She believes
in taking a break when she wants to and doing things that she feels is
right. "I strongly stand by my decision to take a break after Kyunki
Saas... (where she played the role of Teesha)," says the attractive
actress. Just when her popularity charts were soaring with Teesha's
character, she took a sabbatical and went back to her hometown, Pune.
However, thanks to Saat Phere, Ashlesha is back in the limelight. "I
personaly think in Saat Phere, the whole package has clicked well with
the audience. I have personally learned a lot from this show.
Experienced actors like Akshaye Anand, Sulekha Sikhri have taught me a

has become a style mantra now! "The channel gets loads of feedback that
the audience likes to see me in that way. So it's cool for me."
Apart from this show, Ashlesha recently did few episodes for Shhhhh.

What about the personal front? Is it all work and no play? "I will
cross the bridge when it will come closer to me, right now the bridge
is far away," says the clever star. Saat Phere takes 17-18 days in a
month so what does she do in the remaining time? "Oh, I just love
sleeping! To me it's the most effective stress buster in this world. I
have two very close pals in this industry Aditi Pratap
and Kiran Dubey
and we just love to chat with each other and hanging out when we are
not working," says a smiling Ashlesha.
