Mini Biography :
Not many TV viewers will be able to associate the “I am a Complan Girl” to the latest Bollywood craze and heart-breaker – Arian Ayesha Takia.Ayesha was born in Bombay on April 10th 1986. Her dad’s name is Nishit, a Gujerati, while her mom is part Maharashtrian and part Caucasian (British).

Ayesha had never let her lack of speaking Hindi fluently come in her way. A go-getter, she is no stranger to the silver screen and has faced cameras even at the tender age of 4. Her continuity was what got her noticed and the makers of ‘Socha Na Tha’ approached her in 2004 to play the lead role opposite Dharmendra’s nephew, Abhay Deol, which she accepted.

She also signed up for another film, ‘Tarzaan The Wonder Car’ – which proved to be her debut in Bollywood, as the release of ‘Socha Na Tha’ was delayed.

With ‘Tarzaan The Wonder Car’ Ayesha quickly made her mark in Bollywood and not only was noticed but also received an Award – The Best Filmfare Debut.

Thereafter, her films have done poorly at the Box Office, although she scored highly with teen-aged audience in India and abroad, especially with her performance in ‘Dil Maange More’, and ‘Shaadi No.1′.

She also appeared in a 2006 Telegu movie named ‘Robbery’, which was later dubbed into Hindi and released as ‘Super’.

And then came Dor – in which she plays a role without any glamor – a film that brought a lot of praise and much-need recognition for her. Here she has proved that she can enact both sexy and glamorous on one hand, and the more ordinary, next-door-type girl roles with ease.

Buxom Ayesha has a boyfriend in Farhan Azmi, though she has not made any plans for marriage.

She is a vegetarian, and enjoys going for long drives, reading, spending time with family, amongst others.

Now Ayesha is one of the most gorgeous and beautiful actresses – much sought after by movie makers, and a force to be reckoned with – especially for other leading ladies of Bollywood.

Ayesha Takia  tied the knot with long time boyfriend and restaurateur Farhan Azmi on March 1, 2009. She is now Ayesha Azmi.
