Ayesha fumes

Ayesha Takia , the very own doll of indi fillum industry is particularly amused at the rumours doing the rounds these days. And surprisingly, it is not the rumour concerning a link-up, even remotely which has got the sweet Ayesha so very agitated, rather it is the news that her in laws are very conservative, and due to which Ayesha has taken to wearing Burkha now!In fact another version of this story also includes the fact that her new family even opposed her foray into acting.

Ayesha is ther amused at the varied attempts by contemporaries to put her into the retired actress’ bracket after marriage.

‘I’m amazed at the games people play. The other day someone asked me if I’ve started wearing a burqa after marriage,’ laughs Ayesha. ‘Far from feeling clamped, I now have the freedom to do more things than before. My parents-in-law are cool about my business ventures with my husband and my film career.’

‘Farhan (her husband) and I went around together for five years before marriage. So there goes the conservative card. Suddenly after we made it official, I hear all kinds of rumours, including one that I’m out of Revathy Varmha’s film and that I’ve been replaced by some other actress.’

In fact to add another feather in her capo, Ayesha also plans to start up a new business.Talking about the same, Ayesha said, ‘I started working in films when I was only 15. And I just realised I’ve been at it since then. I need to venture out. It’s time to try out new things in life. Today a young woman has so many opportunities. I’m fortunate to have a name and a face that’s recognisable. I want to use that to my advantage and start a clothes line by the middle of next year.’

Ayesha, her mother and sister Natasha will be partners in the apparels business. Excitedly Ayesha raves about the same : ‘All three of us are very excited about doing the clothes line. We love fashion. It’s basically for the girls in the family.’

Ayesha’s husband Farhan Azmi, who is a restaurateur and the son of Samajwadi Party leader Abu Azmi, will be there to help his wife with the clothes line. Well, we are all happy for you Ayesha!
