When Sasheh decided to turn actress, she wanted to be sure that there was good enough grooming on her part before she stepped into the industry. While she did prepare on her own during her teenage years, powers that be at Yash Raj made sure that there was no single false step once she was roped in for AURANGZEB.
''They were there to guide me through. This is the magic of Yash Raj actually. When they take up an artist, they groom them the right way and present them as a good artist. They looked after me really well so that my debut comes across fine,'' smiles Sasheh.
Meanwhile at the home front, the lady who took care of her was mother Salma Agha, especially when it comes to her music lessons.
''That's true,'' Sasheh gets emotional here, ''She is the one who has taught me all the music that I know. She has groomed me all through and made me a person that I am today. She has been an integral part of my life.''
While her personal life may be relatively simpler, it is something on the contrary when it comes to her on-screen characterisation in the film.
''Oh yes, there are a lot of turning points in there,'' says Sasheh, ''AURANGZEB is very relationship based where all characters are discovering that what we are and what we are doing. Everything is driven through power here, as is reflected truly by the very title of the film. For me it was fun to play a character which is just totally not me. I am being seen in a totally different avatar than what I am in real life. However, whether in terms of look and personality, I am just not the girl you see in the song 'Barbaadiyaan'.''
