Ayesha Takia, who was away from the limelight, was back in the news in 2017! Her photos on Instagram took the internet by storm. Reason? Her alleged lip job. (Pic/Yogen Shah and Ayesha Takia's official Instagram account)
Ayesha Takia was seen with fuller lips in her pictures on Instagram that led to speculation of whether the actress has undergone a lip enhancement surgery
With swollen lips, high cheekbones and a frozen face, Ayesha Takia's 'plastic' look fuelled speculations of her cosmetic surgery gone wrong
Ayesha Takia took to Instagram to shut mouths of haters with a powerful post. She wrote, "Crazzzy long arm... me takin selfies! Y not lol! #StopSelfieShaming All u girls n guys who love urself enough to take ur own picture and feel good about it should be proud. Don't let anyone tell u to dim ur confidence and self love. We live in a world of judgements and bullying, so we need to rise above that n just be who we are and be proud of it. LOVE URSELF (sic)"
This was not the first time talks of Ayesha Takia's plastic surgery have surfaced
In September 2016, Ayesha Takia was subjected to rumours of having had a lip enhancement surgery because of her fuller lips
Ayesha Takia made her Bollywood debut in 'Taarzan: The Wonder Car'
Ayesha Takia went on to act in films like 'Dil Maange More', 'Socha Na Tha', 'Shaadi No. 1', 'Dor' and 'Wanted', among others
Ayesha Takia tied the knot with Farhan Azmi in 2009 and they have a three-year-old son Mikail
Not one to pull Ayesha Takia's punches, the actress, who took a sabbatical from movies post marriage, silenced her detractors with a powerful post yet again last year. It read, "Hey all you fabulous people, let's be super proud of who we are right now coz it's freakin 2017 and we ain't letting no bullies bring us down. I love myself and you should love yourself too. Be fabulous and #StopSelfieSha-ming, stop picking on people for who they wanna be. It's lame AF. Opinions are like a**hol**, everyone has one. So scr** what others think."
Ayesha Takia talking about social media trolls said, "We are surrounded by social media today. You have to develop a thick skin and get over it. So, I cleared things out as much as I could and ultimately laughed it off"
Ayesha Takia says things have changed drastically with a dominant presence of social media today
Ayesha Takia said, "In the beginning, when I was doing movies social media wasn't that big, people weren't on cell phones all the time. Now it's different. You are all over the place, everything is out there, sadly people get trolled constantly."
Ayesha Takia further added, "It's not just for actors, but people in general are getting trolled. My sister gets trolled for just having tattoos and piercing. Anyone can get picked on"
Ayesha Takia, often asked by the media to respond to her father-in-law Abu Azmi's views, finds herself at the receiving end of criticism
Talking about the same, Ayesha Takia had once said, "When people are in the public eye, they are questioned for their choice of words. A difference in mindset and generation gap is the issue. There is a difference of opinion [between me and my father-in-law], which is fine. As a celebrity, I take it in my stride that I am expected to harbour an opinion even on something I didn't say"
Ayesha Takia has time and again mentioned that she respects her father-in-law Abu Azmi. She said, "Even though sometimes in a family, we might not agree with everything an elder thinks or says, but you can obviously respect and love them. That's how we are. We care about each other, but we don't necessarily think the same on every topic and that's totally fine... There is still mutual respect and love there"
Ayesha Takia, who was married to Abu Azmi's son Farhan in 2009, featured in television ads and music videos before foraying into films
Ayesha Takia's photographs that led to her getting trolled for her "botoxed" look was apparently morphed. "I was with my family in Goa when we saw the photographs and we started laughing because it was so not who I am and I realise that anyone, who has seen me and meets me in person, will know that it's absolute crap. So I never felt the need to ever speak about it. But I have realised it since then, that every month, some actor or actress is picked on or trolled," Ayesha said
Ayesha Takia's family stands by her all through - and so the criticism does not affect the mother of a four-year-old son
Ayesha Takia said, "I've been blessed with the most awesome family life and I have a great support system. I have a very full life with a child, businesses and things. So I don't take the time to notice the negativity around"
Ayesha Takia made a comeback last year with the music video titled 'Zindagi Tujhse Kya Karen Shikvey' from the album Zindagi Yeh Zindagi
Very few know that Ayesha Takia has been following a vegan lifestyle for eight years
It's Ayesha Takia birthday today. The 'Socha Na Tha' actress, who was on a sabbatical post marriage, grabbed headlines with her changed appearance that sparked rumours of 'plastic surgery gone wrong'. Here is a look at her latest pictures
