With Dor, Ayesha Takia finally managed to convince people that she could act. Nagesh Kukunoor got most of the credit for bringing out the best in her, and since then Ayesha has been an integral part of the Kukunoor camp
Recently spotted at the promotional event of Mod, the next movie she’s doing with the director, she, of course, couldn’t escape the most expected question. “Is it true that you are only allowed to work with Nagesh?” jabbered a journo and before she could reply, the huge audience present at the press conference broke into gales of laughter. “I wish I did every film with Nagesh. He’s let me realise my true potential and I love working with him, but I don’t think I am going to answer that question,” she replied in her usual cheery tone. But what we failed to comprehend is her last line. Why was she so reluctant to answer that question? Giving rise to more doubts in our minds, we think Ayesha doesn’t want to accept the fact that the only guy who offers her movies is Nagesh (apart from an odd Wanted) or she is trying to take the extremely boring, diplomatic route. Well, we leave it at that and wait and watch if Ayesha can recreate the magic of Dor.
