Beautiful and talented, Ayesha Takia started her career at the age 17. In her first year of her career, she won the Filmfare Best Debut Award 2004 for her performance in ‘Tarzan: The Wonder Car’ and ‘Dil Maange More’. Her first music video was Phalguni Pathak’s ‘Meri Chunar Udd Udd Jaye’ when she was 15. Then came ‘Shake it Daddy’ which brought her a lot of recognition. ‘Socha na tha’ is the first movie she signed up for but it got delayed and her other movie ‘Tarzan’ is now claimed as Ayesha’s first movie in Bollywood.She is a Mumbaikar and comes from a mixed family. Her father is Gujarati, and her mother is half British and half Maharashtrian. In spare time, she enjoys reading books, listening to music, spending time with family, long drives, and sitting at cafes over conversation with people she likes. Ayesha had to learn Hindi to do films, but only needed to learn diction because she came from a family where they speak more English at home. She is a pure vegetarian.
