Azmi hails from a conservative Muslim family with strong political background as his father Abu Azmi is state president of the Samajwadi Party. Apparently, when Ayesha Takia decided to make a comeback in Bollywood after a gap of two years post marriage, Farhan advised her to pick roles that does not harm his father's political image in any manner.
From what we hear, it seems like Farhan Azmi would be more comfortable seeing his wife covered from head to toe.
It is even being rumoured that the reason why Ayesha Takia bagged the role in MOD is because of her relationship with director-producer Nagesh Kukunoor. Ayesha apparently considers him to be brother and ties him rakhi every year. As per sources, Ayesha's husband flew down to the location where MOD was being shot to make sure everything went off well.
However, speaking to a leading newspaper, Nagesh dismissed the rumour saying he always dressed his actors to suit a particular character. Ayesha Takia also said, “I've been very particular about what I wear anyway."
