Ayesha Omar Says She Cried When She Saw The Stage For “Tutti Frutti”

Ayesha Omar has always been known as someone who is confident and daring. Her item number “Tutti Frutti” in the film “Karachi se Lahore” was appreciated and criticized at the same time. There are some viewers who think that it is okay for Pakistani films to have these item numbers but there are many others who feel that we are following in the footsteps of India and we should not add these item numbers to the films.

Ayesha Omar has never talked about how it was for her to do this item number because she has never done anything like this. In Nadia Khan Show Ayesha Omar shared details which will surprise people. She said,

“I have performed a lot on stage since childhood so I always had a lot of stage confidence. Director Wajahat, who is like a friend told me that there will be a song in the film but we have not yet decided whether there will be a group performance or something different. Finally when the idea evolved into an actual decision, it was decided that I will be performing alone with all these people surrounding me. I told Wajahat I could not do it. He said of course I could and asked me to relax. It was easier said than done.”

Talking about it further Ayesha said that she fractured her toe two days before the shoot which made things more complicated. She said,

“I wanted the shoot to be delayed but because all the arrangements had already been made, it could not be delayed. When I got to the set on the day of the shoot and saw the stage and the people there, I forgot all about the pain in my toe and was scared to do this in front of all these people. I thought I can’t do this. I literally had tears in my eyes. I said to the director, I will only do it if your wife does it first and he said of course she can do it!”

The director gave Ayesha Omar the confidence to get on the stage and go on with the performance but only after she befriended the people who were going to be there while she was performing. Talking about the crowd she said,

“I saw all these weird faces staring at me. The dancers who were with me are used to it of course so they were not going to find it odd. But the other people who were around, some of them were hired and some of them were just random people who had come to watch. I decided to talk to this crowd and said I was doing this for the first time so I wanted them to cooperate with me.”

Ayesha Omar said that she does not let what people in the social media say about her effect her for a long period of time because people say whatever they want to but it is not necessary that you should take it to heart.
