Ayesha And Her Journey In Bollywood
Ayesha Jhulka’s journey in the industry has been full of ups and downs, in an interview, Ayesha recalled her life in Bollywood and said, “I had just won a couple of beauty contests in the 80s--Miss Delhi, Miss Mussoorie--and also done commercials for Raymond. Gautam Rajyadaksha was shooting me back then and circulated my photographs in the industry which landed me my first film, 'Qurbaan' with Salman Khan in 1989. I was very young then but thankfully didn't have to struggle much to get a break. Back then, I had never thought that my Bollywood journey would last this long. Things were different back then--less manipulative, less planned.”
She also said that her parents’ supported her a lot and “I was very lucky; things were very easy for me because I had the support of my parents and family. Whatever came to me, I took up, and whatever didn't, I let go thinking it was never meant for me; there was no struggle. I can't think of any instance where I sat down to plan a career. If I had done that, I'd probably have had a longer and more substantial career but I am very happy and content with however it went.”

And I am glad that my decision went down well with the entire family. Sameer is a wonderful husband, and a great human being; he has enhanced my life by giving me the freedom to express myself in various quarters of life and supporting me in whatever I wanted to do. I never felt any pressure; I am really glad and lucky to have him.”, in an interview.
