Apart from his busy schedule as an actor, he loves painting, directing, writing and photography very much which he says he practices daily. Must say he is one multi-talented guy!
When we got in touch with him to know about his interests other than acting, he said "During my school days, I was a painter and hence I wanted to pursue a career in painting but due to some reasons I could not go ahead with it. However, I still practice painting at home. I love painting very much and my love for it grows deeper with each painting that I do."
Camera too is his best friend says Ashiesh, "From college days I used to click random pictures and since then I developed a love for photography. I got a professional camera too later and I used to click pictures wherever I used to go. I like to capture the beauty of nature at various places and I also like clicking random pictures of my friends. Even now when I go on the sets, my camera goes along with me always. I have captured the pictures of behind the scenes fun on the sets pictures of all the shows that I have done."
We also got to know that the pictures for the banner of his play See No Evil, Speak No Evil, Hear No Evil and Do No Evil were also clicked by him, "Yes, it is very true that the pictures of the play are clicked by me. The ones in which I am there are clicked by my other friend. It was fun clicking those pics, I enjoyed that photo session very much."
With such a hectic schedule, and managing his hobbies he removes some time to write a feature film and is also into direction, "Writing is something that I like. Currently, I am writing a feature film and also directing two stories - one is based on Child Molestation and the other one has a theme of Love can overcome Terror."
Seems that managing time is not difficult for him, "I believe that we all can manage our time. All it takes is the passion and the way of managing your time. If both these qualities are there in you then definitely it will not be difficult to do multitasking."
"Even though I have grown up as an actor, I am still a painter and director at heart" he concluded.
