Ayesha Jhulka (born 28 July 1975 in Srinagar, Kashmir, India) is a Bollywood actress. She is the daughter of Wing Commander Jhulka, an Indian Air Force Officer. During her career, she has worked with major stars like Mithun Chakraborty, Govinda, Jackie Shroff, Nana Patekar, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Ajay Devgan, Suniel Shetty, Akshay Kumar, Shahrukh Khan etc.
Jhulka made her debut in 1991 with Kurbaan opposite Salman Khan, which turned out to be hit. She got two popular hits in 1992, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander with Aamir Khan and Khiladi with Akshay Kumar. She was a new happening star in Bollywood. 1993 was also good for her, as her films Dalaal and Rang were hits. Though Dalaal was a hit at the box office, Ayesha was having problems with its maker because of a certain scene in which they used her body double. Jhulka filed complaints with the Cine Artistes Association and the Film Producers Association. Out of the three controversial scenes, two were subsequently deleted. But it made her hugely upset as she always played the girl next door kind of roles.
