The surprise success (in fact mega success!) of director Ram Gopal Varma's horror flick Phoonk has not only been a boon for its distributors and the down–but–not–out Ram Gopal Varma but it has also made a star out of Ahsaas Channa. The child artiste received innumerable accolades for her frighteningly brilliant performance as the tormented child and won all the sympathies as well as the hearts of the paying audience. Ahsaas is naturally on cloud nine after the success of the film and is receiving a lot of offers from filmmakers. In fact she is bagging many roles reserved for children through her scary avatar.
As for Ahsaas, this recognition and fame is not new as she has seen it all, having earlier worked with the likes of Shahrukh Khan and Preity Zinta in Karan Johar's Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna and the successful, My Friend Ganesha. She has also worked under the Ram Gopal Varma banner in Vaastu Shastra, starring Sushmita Sen. However, the fact is that true success has come her way only through Phoonk which has made Ahsaas an instant star, a celebrity in her own rights.
Here is hoping for many more Phoonk (mind!) blowing performances!
