Ayesha on family life and Botox rumours
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.”
