Ayesha TakiaAyesha Takia finds a brother in Nagesh Kukunoor

Actress Ayesha Takia and filmmaker Nagesh Kukunoor bonded real well during the making of Dor .

He may have been very strict with her and the other actors on the sets of 'Dor', but Nagesh did develop a special fondness for Ayesha Takia while making the film.



So much that Nagesh asked Ayesha to become his rakhi sister. Ayesha says she was taken aback when she heard it first. But once Nagesh's proposal sank in, she became emotional because she does not have a brother in real life.

Incidentally, the film was being shot in the days when the festival of Raksha Bandhan comes. So, Nagesh and Ayesha had a formal Rakhi ceremony.

Nagesh, Ayesha and her family met at Ayesha's boyfriend Farhan's restaurant Basilico in Bandra. They all had dinner after which Ayesha tied Rakhi to Nagesh. In return he gifted her some money (as is the custom) and lots of blessings.

Ayesha says it was quite an emotional moment for her and Nagesh. She also vows to keep tying Rakhi to him in the coming years.

It is also coincidental that the film that has brought them together is called 'Dor'.

The movie is slated to release this Friday. Ayesha has just returned from Bangkok after the shoot of another movie called 'De Taali'. She is now getting busy in the promotion of 'Dor'.

'Dor' is a story of two women whose lives are invariably strung together in a strange way. The film has Ayesha playing a Rajasthani girl who lives contently amid the patriarchal, strict traditions of a Rajput family. The second actress in the film is Gul Panag who plays an independent, confident woman from Himachal Pradesh.

Kukunoor calls 'Dor' his most challenging movie till date.
