AYESHA TAKIA, WHOSE

father-in-law, Sa­ma­jwadi Party leader Abu Azmi, is in­fa­mous for his misog­y­nis­tic re­marks, says she may not al­ways agree with an el­der’s opin­ion, but there’s “mu­tual re­spect” between them. Abu Azmi had once grabbed head­lines when af­ter the mo­lesta­tion of women by a mob on New Year’s Eve in Ben­galuru, he had said: “It was bound to hap­pen. Women call nu­dity a fash­ion. They were wear­ing short dresses.”

He had even com­mented that women were like “su­gar” and men were like ants. Be­ing an independent woman, who pur­sued her pas­sion for act­ing with films like Socha Na Tha, Tarzan: The Won­der Car, Salaam-ei shq and Dor, one won­ders how Ayesha finds a bal­ance with such thoughts within her fam­ily.

In an in­ter­view, Ayesha ex­plained: “When you are in a fam­ily where there are two or three peo­ple in the lime­light - like pol­i­tics and act­ing - two worlds col­lid­ing like that, there will be times when ob­vi­ously in the press or pub­lic eye, those opin­ions can col­lide and not match. I think the main and im­por­tant thing is to have com­mu­ni­ca­tion.”
