Role of Om Puri’s daughter, work as child artist

In response to this question, Ayesha Kapoor said, ‘I was 8 or 9 years old. I acted in a few commercials. In the year 2009, I did the film ‘Babar’. In this I played the role of Om Puri sir’s daughter. After this I did a cameo in a South film. I wanted to become an actress since then. But when she grew up, the family was not giving consent to act. It took me some time to convince them. When I became a bit mature and responsible, he agreed.
Worked in the gym, went home and trained people

When fed up left the gym job

After that I joined hands with a company and did some projects. I kept doing songs and web shows.
Bold show done under compulsion due to non-availability of work
