While everyone lavishes expensive gifts on birthdays, Ayesha Takia's beau restaurateur Farhan Azmi had a 'cheesy' gift for her birthday. He celebrated Ayesha's 23rd birthday yesterday with a Philadelphia cream New York cheese cake baked by himself! As the actress is allergic to chocolates, he made a strawberry cheesecake.
Farhan brought in Ayesha's birthday at her Versowa home with a surprise birthday party on April 9. Farhan says, "Ayesha didn't want a big party so we celebrated her birthday at home. I baked a a Philadelphia cream New York cheese cake specially for her at my restaurant Cafe Basilico.
Apart from the Philly cheese cake there were doughnuts, munchkins which are like chocolate bomb filled bluberry fillings and sugar and different types of cheesecake which Ayesha loves."
Farhan adds that though Ayesha has been keeping a strict watch on her diet and weight, Sundays, birthdays are binge days. "Ayesha has lost so much weight that I am worried about her," Farhan says.
Says Ayesha, "We don't need an occasion to exchange gifts as we keep splurging on each other all the time. I just gorged myself on the food that was cooked at home as I have been on a strict diet.
It was chill out time with family and Farhan. I have been eating only vegetables, salads and fruits and gymming everyday. I have also been learning the Ramdev Swamy school of yoga and have lost 10 kilos in six months." Ayesha's current list of films include Prabhudeva's Wanted, E Niwas's De Taali, Nagesh Kukunoor's Eight By Ten and Ahmed Khan's Paathshaala.
