Apart from ramp modelling, Sasha Merchant has appeared in several television commercials. On her Bollywood dreams, she told IANS: “I think Bollywood is a lovely industry to be a part of. I am sure everyone has that dream and I would love to be a part of it if something amazing comes my way. I didn’t plan modelling and it literally came out of the blue. In the same way, I am open to acting if something exciting comes up.”

Sasha, daughter of model-actor Aseem Merchant, also opened up about her modelling journey: “I was in college and it was a very random thing because an agency spotted me.
