Ayesha Takia makes her own rules for success.Updated: Mar 24, 2006 19:45 IST
In an age where most actresses are successful because of dare-bare acts, there is one woman who believes in making her own rules!
Sweet and sexy Ayesha Takia does not want to flaunt her delicious curves. The actress gets upfront in a tête-à-tête with HTTabloid.
"I have to face my family, my boyfriend and in future my kids also. I don't want to embarrass them because of my dare bare acts! So, I don't want to do anything which looks obscene on the screen," says she.
Ayesha, who kicked off her acting debut with films like Socha Na Tha and Tarzan, is rejecting offers even by the top brass of directors just on the grounds of exposure and kissing.
"Yes, I have said NO to directors like Yash Chopra. I had even refused to do Neil n Nikki because I felt that I would never be comfortable in a bra and panty and run around the beach. Besides that smooching sequences in the film were toobold for me to do. I want to maintain my dignity in the industry. I don't want to compromise that for a big director or for some big money," she states."Today, if I have to face my family and boyfriend, tomorrow I have to face my kids also. How will I justify my exposure and appearances in a bra? I have some responsibility towards my family and I will never compromise for that. I was very clear in my mind from day one," Ayesha further adds.
The lady has even turned down roles like Chameli saying that she does not aspire to reach on top this way. "I have always opted for different kind of roles and I depend on my work and skills rather than on my skin like many other women in the industry," Takia concludes.
