Notes

"I have always been very individualistic when it comes to my work-choices and I guess now it's paying off. I have never desired to be part of mainstream cinema.so in the genre that I do fall into, I've been pretty lucky so far. Also I feel that this is a good time to be in India, professionally speaking. Art cinema is not as closely defined and limited as it used to be in the seventies. Now there is greater opportunity for a parallel cinema to exist. --Ayesha Dharker in a 1999 interview with IndiaInfoline,com

On auditioning for Andrew Lloyd Webber who produced the London stage musical "Bombay Dreams", Ayesha Dharker told London's Evening Standard (February 6, 2002): "It is a dream come true for me. I met him when he came to India more than a year ago to announce he was going to do the musical. Then I got a call a few months back from the Really Useful casting people and I auditioned for him singing jazz - I was so happy to get the part."
