Action-packed actress ‘Ayesha’ is from Sandalwood (Kannada film industry). Though she starred in Kannada films, she is not from Karnataka. Hailing from Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh, Ayesha is famous for a few Kannada, as well as Telugu movies. She has a very strong and attractive physique that made her entry into the film industries very special.

Ayesha says that she is trained in Karate from the age of one and that she has mastered the art of Karate. She has secured the black belt in Karate, and she used to challenge the boys and men during training. Her toned and muscular physique is what makes her apart from the regular actresses.

Ayesha made her debut film, 'Jayahe', with Jai Akash from Sandalwood, in 2010. The plot of this movie is associated with the struggle in life to find her father. However, Jayahe couldn't appeal to the Kannada audience. Later, she made a new film, 'Onake Obavva', with Deepak in Kannada. Being a revenge story, it attracted the audience to some extent. 'Lady Bruce Lee', her next film, again with Jai Akash, in 2011, was a Telugu film. It had drawn the people's attention because of its action-oriented story.

'Chennamma IPS' is the most remarkable and well-remembered movie in her career. It hit the screens in 2011 in Sandalwood. This story is about an honest cop. She plays the role of an Assistant Commissioner of Police who is harshly treated at the beginning of the movie. The story is about how she converts the negativity and tries to regain the command and control in the city. Sometimes, critics say that this movie is the remake of the well-known Telugu actress Vijayashanti's ‘Vyjayanthi IPS’. Vyjayanthi IPS was a courageous film by Vijayashanti in the 1980's in Telugu. Critics also opined that Ayesha managed to reach the level of Vijayashanti in her acting and ferociousness in the character.

Another notable film includes 'Bhairavi', in 2013. She gained great craze in Sandalwood as Lady Bruce Lee.
