Ayesha Takia, the pretty, innocent girl next door, made a lot of promise with her bubbly act in Imtiaz Ali's SOCHA NA THA. Even though the film did not do well at the ticket window, Ayesha was instantly likeable and the movie too was critically appreciated. Ayesha then went on to do many films, but unfortunately none of them succeeded at the box-office. The only film that tasted average success (that too in select centres) was DOR, where once again Ayesha was highly appreciated for her superb portrayal of a young widow, winning her many awards. Even an extremely well made SUNDAY sank at the ticket window. Despite being a commercial failure, Ayesha kept getting good write ups and continues to be a media favourite.
Ayesha tried her hands at 'hat ke' cinema too and did films like Anurag Kashyap's critically thrashed, NO SMOKING and 8X10 TASVEER with her DOR director Nagesh Kukunoor. Some trade pundits were of the view that with 8x10 TASVEER opposite Akshay Kumar, Ayesha Takia would finally taste big time success, but once again lady luck refused to smile on the lady who has always stuck to her principal of not exposing.
CHECK OUT: WANTED-Salman's sonorous gift for Boney Kapoor!
Ayesha is now happily married to long time boyfriend, Farhan Azmi but she still has a few projects in hand. The most important ones being, WANTED opposite Salman Khan, PAATHSHALA and NAUGHTY @ FOURTY, apart from an animation film, AB DILLI DOOR NAHIN. However, the elusive super hit that Ayesha is looking forward to should come in the form of WANTED, as it has all the ingredients of a blockbuster. Apart from Salman Khan in prime form (action role!), Prabhu Deva as the director and Boney Kapoor, the producer, things seem just right for Ayesha.
Well, Ayesha all the best for WANTED!
