After Tollywood’s Vijayashanti, there hasn’t been (m)any heroine(s) who could successfully play the action-heroine’s role to perfection. Vijayashanti, who has since become a full-fledged politician, dazzled in many action films in the late eighties and throughout the nineties in Telugu and Tamil films. Our smiling beauty Sneha made a pathetic attempt in ‘Bhavani IPS’ and failed miserably.
Taking on the mantle from Vijayashanti, actress Ayesha is making waves in Sandalwood by successively taking on action-packed heroine’s roles in Kannada films. Ayesha is already known as ‘Lady Bruce Lee’ by the fans in Karnataka. Yesteryear’s Kannada actress Malasree too tried her hand at ‘action films’ a few times and did a fairly good job.
Hailing from Tirupathi, Ayesha is well trained in the martial art from of Karate in which she has secured a ‘black belt’. She has a toned, muscular physique besides retaining her feminine beauty. She reportedly started learning Karata when she was just one year old. Fearless at heart, she is said to have floored many ‘men’ during her Karata training.
With films like ‘Jeha He’ and ‘Chennamma IPS’, Ayesha has started going places as an ‘action heroine’ in Kannada films. ‘Chennamma IPS’ is said to be the Kannada remake of Vijayashanti’s timeless classic ‘Vyjayanthi IPS’. Ayesha plays the role of an Assistant Commissioner of Police who goes all out in her offensive against the hooligans the rid the city of crime and deceit.
Looking slim and strong, Ayesha sure deserves the tag of ‘Lady Bruce Lee’!
