Ash appeared on the talk show Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai hosted by late Bollywood actor Farooq Shaikh. In that particular episode, she was asked to call a friend who knew her well. Ash called Chandrachur Singh, with whom she was good friends at that time and worked later in the 2000 film Josh.
Chandrachur told the host that she was a good singer and Farooq asked Ash to sing a number. That's when she started singing the song Meri Sanson Mein from Aur Pyar Ho Gaya, which also starred Bobby Deol and Shammi Kapoor.
The throwback video from 2013 shows a golden moment from 1998 when Ash appeared on the talk show Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai hosted by late Bollywood actor Farooq Shaikh.
In the clip (19:07), a shy Aishwarya is heard crooning Meri Saanson Mein when Shaikh asked her to show her singing talent after Chandrachur Singh revealed her skill. Apparently, Chandrachur and Ash, who later worked in Josh (2000) together, were very good friends at that time.
The film's music was composed by the celebrated Pakistani qawwali singer, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, who also had a cameo in the film. He died just a day after the film's release.
Ash has had a successful career in Bollywood. Even after two decades, she is still one of the most sought-after actors in the film industry.
She is currently shooting for her upcoming film Fanne Khan, co-starring Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao. Incidentally, in the film, she plays a pop star, someone quite similar to pop sensation Beyonce.
