Ayesha Khanna, who was part of Aditya Chopra’s production house in the past, will now make her acting debut in the film, Dishkiyaoon.
A source says that after Parineeti Chopra, Ayesha is the latest talent from the production house to have such a promising start to her career.
Ayesha has earlier worked as a stylist in films like Band Baja Baraat and Ladies Vs Ricky Behl. “She had met Shilpa Shetty for some styling work, but she ended up bagging the lead role opposite Harman Baweja.
She was coaxed into auditioning for the part and immediately after, she was selected as the lead,” says the source.
When contacted, Ayesha confirmed the news 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.”
