Says Arshi, “Ehsaan ji thought that I have a attractive face and figure and if I try I can possibly make it as an actor.” He used to instigate me, and it was at Ehsaan ji’s provocation that I started acting in various dramas in Bhopal city. I started get offers for modeling, and that’s how got assignments for modeling for “Madame”, “Diesel Genes”, “Pepe Jeans”, “Agarwal Jewelers” and many more.” She simultaneously got a break in a Tamil Film “Malli Mishtu” where she played the lead role opposite Tamil Star Naresh.
