Aye­sha ‘laughed off’ Bo­tox, filler ru­mours

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Monika Rawal Kukreja monika.rawal@htlive.com

Ac­tor Aye­sha Takia, who is mak­ing a come­back on screen to­day with the re­lease of a mu­sic video on hu­man traf­fick­ing, was trolled re­cently for her ru­moured cos­metic pro­ce­dures.

While the ac­tor says that she “laughed off those com­ments”, the so­cial me­dia re­ac­tion did rat­tle her a bit — she had been away from the pub­lic eye for a long time be­fore at­tend­ing a few events in Mumbai ear­lier this year; her last ma­jor film Wanted (2009) was fol­lowed by mar­riage and moth­er­hood.

Some of those event pho­tos showed Aye­sha with a face (in­set) that ap­peared Bo­toxed and a mouth that seemed to have lip fillers; this in­vited much spec­u­la­tion and trolling. In a chat with us, Aye­sha says that the pho­tos were mor­phed. “I was in Goa when those pic­tures went vi­ral and it’s so ridicu­lous, be­cause any­one who has seen me in per­son would know that it’s ab­so­lutely crap. But celebri­ties have to go through all this.” How did she re­act? “I just laughed off those com­ments on my In­sta­gram posts. I didn’t let them play with my mind,” says Aye­sha.
