Bollywood actress, Ayesha Takia Azmi is still remembered for her exceptional roles in popular movies, such as Wanted, Dil Maange More, Socha Na Tha, and many more. Born and brought up in Mumbai, Ayesha was always keen on joining the glamour world. So, she stepped into modelling at the early age of 15 and also did some ad commercials. Later, she made her acting debut in Bollywood with the hit movie, Taarzan: The Wonder Car back in 2004 at the age of 18.
However, the actress is missing from the silver screen as she has taken a sabbatical from acting after her last film, Mod, in 2011. Talking about her personal life, Ayesha had tied the knot with a Mumbai-based entrepreneur, Farhan Azmi, in 2009. After a few years of marital bliss, the couple was blessed with a baby boy, whom they have named Mikail Azmi. However, not many know that Ayesha had brief flings with the brothers of two Bollywood actresses before getting married to Farhan.
Ayesha Takia always preferred to keep her personal life under wraps, but time and again, we got to know about her alleged relationships. Once Ayesha was madly in love with Manisha Koirala's brother, Siddharth Koirala, whom she had met much before making her Bollywood debut. The reports about them dating was the topic of discussion back then, but they kept tight-lipped about the same. Reportedly, Ayesha and Siddharth dated each other for two-three years, before finally parting ways on a good note.
Though Ayesha and Siddharth's relationship was a private affair, she had once revealed about it after parting ways with him. Much after her breakup, in an interview, Ayesha was asked if she developed any feelings for actor, Vatsal Sheth after their kiss in Taarzan. Responding to the same, she revealed that she was already in a relationship with Siddharth Koirala back then. However, Ayesha also shared that she and Siddharth had parted ways due to irreconcilable differences.
After her shocking breakup with Siddharth, Ayesha was lucky enough to find love again in the arms of actor, Ashmit Patel. Yes, you read that right! Ayesha had a short fling with Ashmit, who is Ameesha Patel's brother. Though Ameesha, Ayesha and Ashmit were quite popular back in those days, the trio always kept mum about their personal lives. Even though Ayesha and Ashmit never spoke about their relationship, it was reportedly short-lived.
If reports are to be believed, back in 2005, a video of Ashmit Patel and Riya Sen went viral on the internet, which created waves in the film industry. After the video went viral, people started speculating that something is brewing between the two. While their fans were rooting for their relationship, the video didn't go well with Ayesha. The actress reportedly got so enraged that she cut her off from Ashmit.
Farhan and Ayesha got married after dating each other for three years when the actress was just 23. Once in an interview with a media portal, Ayesha Takia Azmi talked about her decision to marry at an early age and revealed that she had never thought of marrying at 23. The actress also shared that though she had almost quit her hobbies due to her work commitments earlier, she was enjoying her life to the fullest after marriage. In her words:
“I never thought I would be married at 23, but that's the fun thing about life -- you don't know what is waiting for you at the next corner. I have been lucky to be with Farhan. Before I got into films I would paint, read books and do a lot of things, but due to my acting commitments, they took a backseat. But now I am back to all of it and I love it”.
Though Ayesha Takia is missing from the silver screen, she constantly keeps her fans updated about her whereabouts through her social media handles.
