Her definitive beauty raised a plenty of eyeballs and Ayesha’s was just one step away from getting the much-needed recognition in the Indian Film industry. By then, Ayesha became a household name in the advertisement and musical video industry.
Her claim to fame came after Ayesha appeared in another music video, Nahin Nahin Abhi Nahi alongside Keith Sequeira. The early 2000’s was a time where remixes ruled the chartbusters, and this song was no different.

Ayesha Takia Filmography
Ayesha penned down her first film contract for Socha Na Tha. However, it wasn’t her Bollywood debut due to the delay in the post-production of the movie. Takia’s first ever Bollywood film was Taarzan: The Wonder Car. She was critically applauded for her role in the movie. She even had her hands on several awards for the role in the movie. Her first step in the Bollywood was a successful one, but somehow she couldn’t replicate her performances in later years giving flops after flops.
After a series of flop movies, Ayesha appeared in the movie, Dor. It was a small-budget film where the actress played the role of a widowed Rajasthani woman with sheer perfection. The directorial venture of Nagesh Kukonoor and methodised acting of Shreyas Talpade and Gul Panag was well-received by the critics. Ayesha won several awards for her finesse in the portrayal of a strong character in Dor. She has even featured in a Telugu film, Super alongside Nagarjuna.

The biggest milestone in her acting career came in the form of Prabhu Deva’s Wanted. She was cast alongside Bollywood’s Bhaijaan, Salman Khan, and Vinod Khanna. The movie was a blockbuster hit and went on to become the third highest grosser at the Box office in 2009. Takia received positive reviews from the critics and was considered as one of the prime reasons for the film to do incredibly well at the Box office.
Somehow, she started to fade from the industry. Maybe she chose her family after marriage over her career and decided to shift her attention there. But she somehow managed to pull out of the Bollywood scene. After Wanted, she was seen in just a film titled Mod in 2011. Her performance was much-credited by the critics. However, we haven’t seen much of Ayesha Takia ever since. She appeared as a host in Sur Kshetra in 2012, but with time disappeared completely from the screens.
