Ayesha Takia's back after the break

Ayesha Takia's back after the break

Ayesha Takia, who is making a comeback with director Nagesh Kuknoor's 'Mod', says the break post her marriage was a practical step towards a secure future.
After marrying restaurateur Farhan Azmi in 2009, Ayesha got involved in his restaurant business. The Salman Khan-starrer superhit 'Wanted' was her last release.
"I had been working for so many years before 'Wanted', which did really well at the box office, and I am thankful for that. I really took time to understand about the restaurant business," Ayesha said at the unveiling of the first look of 'Mod' in Mumbai.
"I took the break because I really needed to look at things from an outsider's perspective. As an actor, it helped me a lot."
Her love for acting inspired her to make a comeback, she added.
"For me, it's really about the craft and I enjoy it thoroughly. So, if I don't sign anything that genuinely excites me, I lose interest right there. I was fortunate that Nagesh came to me with 'Mod'," said Ayesha, who made her Bollywood debut with 'Taarzan: The Wonder Car' in 2004.
The 25-year-old, who earned critical acclaim for her performance in Kukunoor's 'Dor', is all praise for the director for extracting the best out of her.
"Nagesh is the one who truly brings out the best in me. He taught me my true potential as an actor. I am fortunate to get a chance to work with Nagesh, who gives me roles any girl would die for."
"After 'Dor', I didn't think it was possible to do such a role again, but 'Mod' is the best film for me to do after a long wait," said Ayesha.
Set in a small hill station, 'Mod' is a love story between two very different people. In the film, she has been paired with MTV VJ Rannvijay.
Ayesha is in awe of the character she essays in the film.
"The character I play is amazing. She is mature, independent and totally my opposite. I am amazing (laughs) but not that independent. She manages her life. She has this clock store and earns her living. She meets Raanvijay and falls in love with him."
"She is unlike any character I have ever played before. When you do a Nagesh film, you really go into details about the character, her mind and her life. So, the character is amazing and I would miss her forever," she said.
Releasing September 30, the film also stars actor Raghuvir Yadav and Tanvi Azmi in pivotal roles.
