Asmita is a trained Kathak dancer who has been able to successfully manoeuvre from being an Indian model to acting in 9 south films as a female lead and also in two television shows. She is now seen in the web series 'Poison 2' as Hina.

Asmita shares, "I have enjoyed every part of the journey and met a lot of good people on the way. When it comes to my role or character in the web series, I was attracted to the charged-up storyline with full of manipulations, and the strong character that I was essaying on screen. The season is a poisonous concoction of emotions such as jealousy, lust, revenge, rage, betrayal, insecurity, etc all served on a platter of 11 episodes. I essay the character of Hina in the show, who is supporting the main protagonist i.e. Aftab Shivdasani to achieve all his plans."

Hina is in love with Aditya (Aftab's character); how the story unfolds will get the viewer's pulse ticking. Vishal Pandya is a master director of this genre and has layered the heady mix with more mystery and ambiguity. In fact, Hina is the only positive character in the show and comes with no hidden agendas like the other characters.

Sharing about her experience with the main protagonist Aftab Shivdasani, Asmita says, "He is real fun to work with and also a very down to earth person. He was the senior-most artist on the sets but was very real; it was great to have a conversation with him. He is super-friendly and I believe every person who has ever worked with Aftab Shivdasani is his friend. He would pull my leg and play pranks many times and the entire unit was aware of the joke except me. I used to wonder, why everyone is laughing. The fun and energy he brings on the sets are unparalleled."

The trained Kathak Dancer

Asmita is a trained Kathak dancer and also believes that is a fabulous dance form that gives a lot of flexibility and poise.

"I personally love this dance form. It is said that if one knows a classical dance form, they can learn another quickly. I have seen the same with my Gurus, after mastering Kathak - they mastered other dance forms too like it was just a piece of cake. I am still a learner and believe in continuous learning. The modern generation prefers it less as it takes years of practice and immense patience to learn Kathak. However, I believe that youth should learn it. Kathak gives emphasis on poses, expressions, grace, hand, eye and body movements and footwork. This makes your body look younger, lose body weight and brings a lot of excitement in life. Within no time you will discover that you have become more active and full of energy. The facial expressions, footwork and grace also improve," she adds.

The life during New Normal

Parts of the web show were shot pre and post-COVID-19 both. After the relaxation for the lockdown announced by the Maharashtra Government, there were many changes in the working pattern with the new shooting SOPs in place. The production house ensured to go beyond the procedure in the SOP and took all the care to ensure that all the cast and crew are safe. Right from wearing masks to having food packed in trays to sanitising clothes and also the vanity vans, all the cast and crew had realised the importance of following the.

She adds, "Everything looked very different, it became difficult to identify the person behind the mask as we were so used to seeing faces. There was a seriousness in the air, people used to talk less to each other. However, in a few days, everyone got adjusted to the new normal and the old camaraderie was rekindled on the sets."
