If all things had been well, Ayesha Takia, would've been in the middle of her wedding ceremonies at the moment. But following the 26/11 terrorist attacks on Mumbai, the actress and her fiance, restaurateur Farhan Azmi decided to push their wedding to next year. And the actress who'd been refusing films for the last six months, has now signed a new film!
The actress has taken up south director Revathi's (not to be confused with Revathy of Mitr and Phir Milenge) next film. Says Ayesha, "It's a woman-oriented subject and a very interesting concept. It's a sweet story, and is based on the director's life."
She will have three big releases coming up in 2009 Wanted, Tasveer and Paathshala the year she will also tie the knot. However she is unwilling to disclose the wedding date, "As of nothing has been fixed. Let's take it as it comes."
The actress stresses that she isn't disappointed about the postponement of her wedding, "The cancellation is nothing compared to the grief the people in Mumbai have faced in the last month. It's better to push my wedding back by a few months than even think of celebrating at a time like this."
Ayesha concludes by saying, that she and Farhan won't be joining in the Christmas or New Year's Eve celebrations this year, "We will sit at home and just spend time with our loved ones." She echoes the sentiments of most Mumbaikars, who came so close to losing their near and dear ones.
