After winning majority of best debutant award in year 2004 after the release of TAARZAN - THE WONDER CAR and DIL MAANGE MORE, pretty Ayesha Takia didn't really have a great time at the box office.
Her SOCHA NA THA brought her immense appreciation but her subsequent films like SHAADI NO.1, HOME DELIVERY and SHAADI SE PEHLE weren't really noticed by many.
Thankfully a turnaround happened in a small but interesting role in Naseeruddin Shah's debut directorial effort YUN HOTA TOH KYA HOTA. Double whammy came in the form of Nagesh Kukunoor's DOR and suddenly the glam doll was taken seriously as an actor.
All this and more should help her expect a rocking 2007 ahead where she would be having as many as 5 releases at the least, starting with magnum opus SALAAM-E-ISHQ. A guaranteed success in the making, the film pairs her with her SHAADI SE PEHLE co-star Akshaye Khanna. Her next release after this would be Ahmed Khan's FOOL N FINAL where she plays a tomboyish character.
Anurag Kashyap's NO SMOKING is an interesting subject too where she would be seen with John Abraham. The film is aiming for a release towards the middle of the year. After saying KYA KOOL HAIN HUM, Tusshar Kapoor would be exclaiming KYA LOVE STORY HAI in Ayesha's ears soon where she would be working with first time director Lovely Singh.
On the same lines, DE TAALI is another fun film that she is currently working with LOVE KE LIYE KUCH BHI KAREGA director E Niwas. In the film, she would be seen along with youngsters Aftab Shivdasani, Ritesh Deshmukh and Rimi Sen.
With so much happening in Ayesha's film career currently, it is indeed an exciting time for her to be playing a long innings in Bollywood!
