Former superstar Ayesha Jhulka says that she stepped into Bollywood quite early in life and she now regrets every bit of it. The 45-year-old, who had won hearts as the girl-next-door in Aamir Khan’s Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar (1992) or as a college-goer in Khiladi, experienced stardom at an early age. She was only 19 when she got the offer to play the lead in Kurbaan (1991).
“I went with the flow. Honestly, I regret it slightly that I couldn’t live those years as a normal person and was only working. I don’t regret getting into films. I enjoyed myself thoroughly.” As a kid, I used to watch a lot of films. My grand-mom got me my first VCD player. I used to be glued to TV all the time. My parents were very liberal. I studied fashion designing and was set to make a career in it. That’s when I received my first film offer. I could see my visions coming to life, but I was too young at that time,” Ayesha told Hindustan Times.
She was last seen in the film ADA... A Way of Life in 2010. Ayesha is returning to Bollywood with Anil Sharma’s Genius, slated to release this year.
