New Delhi: Remember Ayesha Jhulka who featured in several hit films from the 90s, most notably the likes of ‘Khiladi’, ‘Kurbaan’, and ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar’. Ayesha has also made her acting comeback with Amazon Prime Video’s ‘Hush Hush’ series. Recently, in an interaction with a publication she shared whether she was uncomfortable filming a scene in ‘Khiladi’ wherin Akshay Kumar had spat water on her face.
Speaking to ETimes about the mentioned incident, Ayesha said, “I strongly believed then and believe it even now, that if you have taken on a project you have to surrender yourself to your director and your team. Have faith in them and just do what they are telling you to. Yes, when it comes to the don’ts, you must say establish don’ts before you get onto the set, or before you sign the project, which I have.”
The scene appeared in the romantic song ‘ Kya Khabar Thi Jaana from Khiladi (1992). In the said scene, Akshay moves up in the swimming pool with a mouth full of water and spits it on Ayesha’s face.
“I have also had my restrictions, that I would not wear a particular costume, or not be comfortable doing certain scenes. I have also had those don’ts, but not after coming on set. Once I decide to do a project, with all the clarity, then I would go all out, surrender myself, try to be punctual, try to be the director’s actor, and I don’t like to throw tantrums unless I am being troubled unnecessarily,” Ayesha added.
Ayesha also added that she is very happy for Akshay Kumar’s success today and that she shared the ‘best chemistry’ with him.
‘Hush Hush’ is a thriller made by an all-women crew and is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video. The web series also stars Soha Ali Khan, Kritika Kamra, Karishma Tanna, and Shahana Goswami.
