Best known for her performance in 'Dor' and Salman Khan starrer 'Wanted', actress Ayesha Takia, who will be seen hosting a singing reality show, says she wants to do things other than films for the time being. 

Ayesha is making her debut on small screen as the host for singing reality show 'Sur-Kshetra' that would have a mix of both Indian and Pakistani singers.According to a report in Times of India.

After making her debut in Bollywood in 2004 with 'Tarzaan - The Wonder Car' that got her the best debut actress award, Ayesha did several films like Imtiaz Ali's 'Socha Na Tha', 'Dil Maange More' with Shahid Kapoor and later Nagesh Kukunoor's critically acclaimed 'Dor' (2006) and commercially successful film 'Wanted' (2009).

"Right now I have not signed any film. I am just trying to understand and experience few things about me and about my life. I don't think as of now films fit into it. I can't say that I am putting a full stop to my career in Bollywood. It is like never say never," Ayesha told PTI.

"Movies take lot of your time from making to promotions. Today I can do my business, enjoy my family life, travel around. I have been doing films for quite some time, now I want to do something different," she said.

Ayesha and Nagesh Kukunoor share a close bond and she insists that if Kukunoor offers her a film that is different, she will do it.

"If a friend like Nagesh wants to make something like 'Dor', I would love to be a part of it. I am not putting a full stop to my Bollywood career... Like a rule. I am open to doing it (films), but may be in the future," she said.
