Sneha who has acted with all the leading performers of the industry inclusive of Nagarjuna, Balakrishna, Tarun hasn’t been garnering good opportunities in the recent times. Stereotypical roles modelled with glamour has been her forte and repeated roles such as that didnt help her cause to any avail. She has now settled for motherly roles in Bollywood when her career has literally faded in the southern industry. She was touted to be the next Soundarya but destiny had some other ideas.
She has accepted an offer to play a wife alongside Naseeruddin Shah in a Hindi film titled ‘Made Dad’. She would play mother to Ayesha Takia in the cited film. In fact her supposed debut in Bollywood was destined to happen long back with Rajkumar Santoshi’s Ramayan but the role went on to Kajol. The film though was shelved later due to budget constraints.
Ayesha Takia Azmi, who is married to well-known entrepreneur Farhan Azmi, is planning to open a chain of cafes called ‘Chai Coffee’. The first outlet is expected to open in Versova, Mumbai.
ANJAANA ANJAANI, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra and directed by Siddharth Raj Anand, is almost complete, except for a 3-day shooting. Since the makers couldn’t get permissions to shoot on a bridge in U.S.A., the portions are currently being shot in Malaysia.
While on ANJAANA ANJAANI, although the release of the film has been fixed for 1st October, Siddharth is keen to bring it in July, almost three months before its scheduled date.
Karan Johar and debutante director Siddharth Malhotra are still searching for the right title for their film, starring Kajol, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal. In fact, both Karan and Siddharth have asked netizens on Twitter to come up with an apt title, but haven’t found one yet.
Bollywood actress-turned-business woman Ayesha Takia says her 21-year-old sister Natasha Takia is all set to enter the Hindi film industry next year. She wants her younger sibling to be welcomed by the audience like Kareena Kapoor was.
“My sister Natasha who is 21 will be in films next year. Hopefully, she’ll be welcomed in the industry like other star sisters. I’m very excited for her. Let’s hope her career works. She’s preparing herself, working out ferociously. When I started out I had no clue about these things. At least now when they know I’m her sister they’ll give her a chance,” Ayesha said.
“There’re so many beautiful girls in this country. Maybe they’ll watch Natasha at least the first time because she’s my sister. But there’s the downside. They’ll start comparing us. Audiences are so unforgiving. They give you one chance, and then they let go,” she added.
Ayesha said she would like Natasha to be received like Kareena Kapoor, who became a bigger star than her elder sister Karisma. However, other star sisters like Tanisha (younger sister of Kajol) and Shamita Shetty (younger sister of Shilpa Shetty) were cold-shouldered by the audience.
Audiences would now get to see more of Natasha and less of Ayesha on the big screen as the latter has ventured into the business world.
“I’ve done it (films) for so long. I’m now enjoying making my own rules. I’m having a ball concentrating on business ventures. My first boutique hotel in Goa is on. We are hoping to start it this season,” she said.
