Talking to IndiaForums, Ayesha quippted: “No, I wasn’t skeptical to play a mother at this age. I didn’t have any doubts or issues on playing the part because as an artist, one should believe in going wherever and however the story of the show is moving. I believe that whatever happens, it only makes the story better and one should go ahead with it. Two new fun elements in form of kids have been added which has made the story more intriguing and gripping, so the twist is only for the betterment of the show. Also, as an actor, I feel one should accept such things for the experience of it. You get to live a life and explore that side of your personality that you’re not”.
She further talked about the actresses getting typecast for playing mothers on-screen at very young age and shared, “I feel, gone are the days where the actors are typecast into playing certain roles. There are so many mediums and so much of content being made that one can always opt to go and explore and then come back and do other things. There are so many examples of the same in the industry who’re doing the same brilliantly. I believe, I’m lucky to be a part of the industry when typecast is no more a concept. Lastly, I have a few nieces and nephews and I love playing and being around them and hence playing a mother wouldn’t be rocket science to me; I knew I can do it convincingly and hence had no doubts on playing a mother”.
Ayesha, who is originally from Agra, is seen playing a Maharastrian girl in the show.
