Ayesha Takia is tying the knot with boyfriend Farhan Azmi on March 1.
Ayesha Takia has finally opened up about her big day â€” her wedding to long-time boyfriend Farhan Azmi. We were actually planning to get married sometime around Christmas last year, but the 26/11 attacks on Mumbai left us all feeling very sad, so we postponed the wedding. March 1 was found to be suitable for all, so thatâ€™s it,â€ she says. But ask the actress about her wedding plans and the she clams up. â€œIâ€™m not going to talk about my wedding plans or the wedding dress or where weâ€™re going for our honeymoon. Those details are very sacred and very personal and I donâ€™t wish to discuss them beforehand. All I can say is that weâ€™ve planned it all and Iâ€™m praying that everything goes off well.â€
Is she going to quit films, in the tradition of most newly-married Bollywood heroines? â€œNo. In fact, it will be work as usual once the wedding is over. I enjoy working in films and will be back in the studios soon.â€
Ayeshaâ€™s always been picky about the roles she chooses. Will that change once she gets married? â€œIâ€™ve always been very conservative about my screen image and the type of roles that I play. I donâ€™t think marriage will change that because I have always played only those roles that Iâ€™m comfortable with,â€ she replies.
Her fiancÃ© Farhan is an hotelier and the buzz is that the two are building a hotel at Goa. Ayesha says, â€œYes, we have built the first of many hotels in Goa. The project is nearly complete. Once itâ€™s on track, we plan to have an entire chain of hotels around the country.â€ So is she going to be a partner with her husband-to-be in his future enterprises? â€œWhy not? After all, women are all about multi-tasking. I can very well divide my time between my work and his work and give my best to the two,â€ she says.
Now that sheâ€™s marrying into a family of politicians, is public life also on her agenda? â€œIâ€™m just 23-years-old. I started with my acting career when I was just 15; everything in my life has come at the right time. Perhaps politics will also happen when Iâ€™m mature enough to take it up,â€ she says before signing off.
