The trailer of Dishkiyaaoon has been released, and along with Sunny Deol and Harman Baweja, the viewers have also noticed a sultry actress with Harman in the trailer. The newbie is Ayesha Khanna, who gets to make her Bollywood debut with Dishkiyaaoon.
Ayesha Khanna may be a novice, but she is not new in the industry. Ayesha has worked for Aditya Chopra’s production house Yash Raj Films in the past, and was involved as a stylist in films like Band Baaja Baaraat and Ladies V/s Ricky Bahl.
Her chance meeting with Shilpa Shetty landed her in Dishkiyaaoon. It’s learnt that Ayesha met Shilpa for some styling-related job, but when Shilpa noticed her, she coaxed her to do the auditions.
As per sources, after Parineeti Chopra (who had worked with Yashraj’s PR department), Ayesha is the latest talent from the production house to have such a promising start to her career.
Confirming the news to a tabloid, Ayesha Khanna is quoted as saying, “Being an actress was never part of my plan. Shilpa insisted that I audition and luckily for me, director Sanamjit (Singh Talwar) loved my performance.”
Even though the action-packed trailer of Dishkiyaaoon is more about Sunny Deol and Harman Baweja, Ayesha manages to attract attention with her unconventional look in fleeting glimpses.
