Asha Alahan is the daughter of Dev and Sunita Alahan. She was born on 13th January 2006, shortly after her twin brother Aadi. In March of that year, Sunita still hadn't got back together with her father, and decided to leave the Street with the twins.
In late 2009, the twins returned when Sunita resumed her relationship with Dev. Sunita feared that Asha had meningitis after discovering she had spots and a high temperature. A Doctor from the Medical Centre visited their home and much to the relief of a worried Dev and Sunita, Asha was diagnosed with a virus.
In April 2013, the twins lost their mother when Sunita died from her injuries following a fire in the Rovers Return Inn - the fire being started by her ex-boyfriend Karl Munro, who also turned off her life support machine in Weatherfield General.
- Both Asha and Aadi Alahan were played by triplets Hannah, Harris & Ria Ahmed in 2006. Since the character's return in 2009, Asha has been played by Tanisha Gorey.
- Aadi and Asha appear to have been aged up a year at some point since their 2009 return. This is evidenced by their 10th birthday taking place in January 2015 and their first year at Weatherfield High starting in September 2016.
