Today, the very beautiful and much talented Ayesha Takia celebrates her birthday and BollyCurry is here to celebrate the new chapter of her life.
Takia was born on April 10, 1986 in Mumbai. She began her career in front of a camera at the mere age of fifteen when she modeled for the I am Complan Boy! I am Complan Girl! campaign alongside the chocolate boy and dancing sensation, Shahid Kapoor. She also appeared in the music video of the song "Meri Chunar Udd Udd Jaye" sung by the melodious voice of Falguni Pathak. At the age of eighteen, Takia featured in another music video of "Shake It Daddy" by DJ Aqeel. This video caught the eye of various Bollywood producers and directors, landing her the movie Socha Na Tha against Bollywood's current dark horse, Abhay Deol. Following that, she signed onto to do the movie Tarzan: The Wonder Car, which eventually ended up being her 'debut' film due to the release of Socha Na Tha being delayed.
Takia has many accolades to her credit including the 2004 FilmFare Best Debut Award for the movie Tarzan: The Wonder Car. The Zee Cine Critics Award for Best Actress for the movie Dor also belongs to her.
Although the movies following Takia's first two failed to do well at the Box Office, Dor managed to garner attention from critics for her outstanding performance as a widowed Rajasthani woman living in a traditional joint family. The actress's most recent blockbuster is the 2009 thriller Wanted alongside Salman Khan as her co-star. The movie did exceptionally well that it landed itself the title of being the third highest grossing film of the year.
Takia has also done a Telugu movie, Super, which earned a nomination for FilmFare Best Actress Award [Telegu]. In 2011, she starred in the movie Mod, which did fairly well. As of 2012, Takia was seen as the bubbly host of the singing reality show, Sur Kshetra.
As for her love life, the lass is married to a restaurateur, Farhan Azmi, who also is the son of politician and leader of the Samajwadi party, Abu Asim Azmi. In December 2013, the couple was blessed with a baby boy.
