Ayesha Takia refuses to Kiss!

Nagesh Kukunoor's Dor has opened well across the country and going by director's testimony Ayesha Takia has been a revelation in his film.According to him, at first, he was stunned when somebody suggested Ayesha's name for the role. But he knew that Naseer did cast her in his movie, he thought there must be something to her. "I watched some scenes from Socha Na Tha, and she emerged as a really natural actress. What really did it for me were the emotions on her face. She's fantastic. I'm sure Tabu and Juhi would have given powerhouse performances, but I think, in this story, the only way to create empathy is to keep the character younger," he gushes. Apparently floored by Takia, Nagesh offered her a role in his next film but we hear that she has refused the film as there's a kiss was involved in it. According to insiders, Ayesha loved the script but given its kissing situation she has no option but to reject the offer. But this is not the first time she had rejected any movie on the similar grounds. Ayesha also gave thumbs down to Yash Raj's ‘Neil N Nikki’ as she was adamant not to kiss on screen. But still Nagesh is full of praise for Ayesha. "It comes as a pleasant surprise to see a two-year old in the industry trying her hand at a new genre. At a time, when she is not even considered a bankable star to sell an art house product, her decision to act in a de-glamorised set up is laudatory," he exclaims. Way to go Miss Takia!
