Mumbai, Aug 31 (PTI) Best known for her performance in Dor and Salman Khan starrer Wanted, actress Ayesha Takia, who will be seen in a new avatar as a host on singing reality show, says her Bollywood career is not over yet.

Ayesha is making her debut on small screen as the host for singing reality show Sur-Kshetra that would have a mix of both Indian and Pakistani singers.

After making her debut in Bollywood in 2004 with Tarzaan - The Wonder Car that got her the best debut actress award, Ayesha did several films like Imtiaz Ali's Socha Na Tha, Dil Maange More with Shahid Kapoor and later Nagesh Kukunoor's critically acclaimed Dor (2006) and commercially successful film Wanted (2009).

"Right now I have not signed any film. I am just trying to understand and experience few things about me and about my life. I don't think as of now films fit into it. I can't say that I am putting a full stop to my career in Bollywood. It is like never say never," Ayesha told PTI in an interview.

"Movies take lot of your time from making to promotions. Today I can do my business, enjoy my family life, travel around. I have been doing films for quite some time, now I want to do something different," she said.

Ayesha and Nagesh Kukunoor share a close bond and she insists that if Kukunoor offers her a film that is different, she will do it. "If a friend like Nagesh wants to make something like Dor, I would love to be a part of it. I am not putting a full stop to my Bollywood a rule. I am open to doing it (films), but may be in the future," she said.
