Trivia: Model and actor Ashish Chaudhary has acted in Hindi films of various genres. Starting from action to thriller to comedy to romance, he has done it all. He was also a part of two shows on television. Tragedy struck the actor when his sister and brother-in-law were killed in the 2008 Mumbai attacks.
The actor made his debut in 1997 with a television show named ‘Humko Ishq Ne Maara’. After appearing in films like ‘Chalo America’ and ‘Love at Times Square’ and another television show named ‘Hum Pardesi Ho Gaye’, Aashish finally got noticed in his film ‘Qayamat: City Under Threat’ in 2003.
Ashish was then seen in ‘Shaadi Ka Laddoo’, a comedy film where he played second parallel lead to Sanjay Suri. His versatility was seen when he starred in a bold film like ‘Girlfriend’ which dealt with the issue of lesbianism. Fans got to see him in random films like ‘Fight Club- Members Only’, ‘Teesri Aankh: The Hidden Camera’ and ‘Speed’, none of which were successful at the box office.
The handsome actor finally tasted success with Indra Kumar directed comedy film ‘Dhamaal’, in which he starred alongside Arshad Warsi, Javed Jaffrey, Ritesh Deshmukh and Sanjay Dutt. The film was a surprise success at the box office and managed to bring in good revenue. It did bring in more offers for Ashish but the films which he did were not well- received at the box office. ‘Rama Rama Kya Hai Dramaaa’, ‘EMI’, ‘Paying Guests’, ‘Three- Love, Lies and Betrayal’, ‘Season’s Greetings’ and ‘Daddy Cool’.
2008 proved to be a bad year for him on the personal front. He lost his sister and brother-in-law in the November 2008 bomb blast in the Oberoi Hotel, Mumbai.
In 2011, he was seen in ‘Double Dhamaal’, the sequel of his 2007 hit Dhamaal. The film, however, failed to match up to its predecessor’s level and was not half as entertaining. He will next be seen in the third film of the Dhamaal series. The film, named ‘Total Dhamaal’, is set to release August 2014 with a huge star cast featuring the original cast of Sanjay Dutt, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi, Ashish Chowdhry and Javed Jaffery. The film will also feature Malika Sherawat and Kangana Ranaut. Besides the Dhamaal franchise, Ashish Chaudhary has returned to television to join the cast of Ek Mutthi Aasmaan as the male lead, Raghav Singhania on Zee TV.
