Ashmita Bakshi, an extremely beautiful girl from Aamchi Mumbai has no qualms in accepting that she had absolutely no connections in Planet Bollywood. Neither did she had any dreams of becoming a celluloid silver screen heroine. Besides she is frank enough to admit that probably her filmic journey may have gained its roots from her college days when like any other bubbly girl even she had taken part in the dance competition & fashion shows of the intercollegiate festival. Anyways Ashmita is now already 1 film old. Her debut film ‘Black Home’ was released just last month and now she is waiting with batted breath for the release of her next film titled ‘Makad Jaala – A Political Trap’.
Ashmita avers, “I was born & brought up in Mumbai. You can say that I am a typical Mumbaite girl, an IT graduate topped with an MBA degree. I stay with my family who are absolutely non – filmy. And of course I have no filmy connections whatsoever to my credit. I had never thought even in my wildest imagination that even I would don the grease paint & face the arc lights. So as I was telling you I did take part in the dance competitions & the fashion shows in the intercollegiate festival. Which eventually got me interested to try my hands at acting in films. And luckily for me one of my film titled ‘Black Home’ has already been released on 20th Mar, 2015, In which I did an important character. And now my upcoming film ‘Makad jaala-A Political trap’ is all set for release on 24th Apr, 2015. In ‘Makad Jaala-A Poilitical Trap’ I am playing a lead role of a character whose name is Neha and who is a bold & bindaas girl, one who loves her boyfriend Rada (Amit Pundir) but at the same time I even slap him when he tries to go in the wrong track. Neha potrays the role of a strong headed girl. Personally too, i am a strong supporter of what is right. Strangely enough even before the release of ‘Makad Jaala-A Political Trap’ I started getting good roles in movies in lead. It changed my life, thanks to my director Dinesh kumar Sahu. I should also thank my co-actor Amit Pundir and the entire team of ‘Makad Jaala-A Political Trap’. To sum it up I would say that I have more films coming up. One of them is titled ‘Honeymoon Hungama’. No doubt I am playing the main lead in it and for which I have just completed the shoot. I have 2 more films lined up but I shall reveal their names once I sign on the dotted lines.”
