No two ways about it. ...the name Ashish Sharma was alien to me before RR...Just by chance,I happened to watch it and when he made his first appearance ...I was like WOW *wide eyed* * mesmerised *...and from thereon,there was no looking back...after RR ended,I tried watching many shows but couldn't sustain because I guess I was looking for Rudra and that is impossible to find......It will be possible only if Ashish plays a character again.
He is doing a great job as Lord Ram but I dare NOT call that HOT ...it's more on scared lines.
Right now I am watching 3 shows of Ashish on TV and on a serious note I can't decide who's hottest among the three
Even Ashish 's version of Ram is very hot sply in the yudh kand his stubbled look is killer (Bhagvan maaf karna)
But yes Rudra being a contemporary character is a bit more hot than his mytho nd historic character
About the eyes, I have seen many actors who have expressive eyes. But what makes Ashish stand out is the way he uses them differently for different characters.
Like Rudra and Chandragupta Maurya both are very patriotic and have angst in there eyes. Both are very attached to their mothers, nd miss them.
Both characters were given similar scenes but Ashish maintained the difference between both the characters beautifully. While Rudra had a maturity in him, CGM has a boyish charm, innocence in him.
Nowadays in SKR Ram's anger is on some other level. Any other actor would have lost the serenity of Ram while performing these scenes, sply wen we know that how he portrayed Rudra and Chandragupta's anger. But for Ram it has always been restrained anger.
Ashish's Ram is not even that distant and god like, he's very human but still he brings the divinity with his eyes. Or I can say he does it just the way Lord Ram was, human yet divine
Infact I watch these shows back to back I literally get confused if he's the same actor or not. Such is the difference. That's where his "talking eyes" take the cake and he shines in each role.
