Bollywood Emma, Ayesha, to start filming in April


Things look a little more definite for the Bollywood adaptation of Emma produced by Slumdog Millionaire star Anil Kapoor.

That’s right, the word is final. The Jane Austen classic Emma will be adapted for Indian audiences in a project titled Ayesha. The camera starts rolling this April with Abhay Deol in the role of Emma/Ayesha’s secret love. Along with Abhay the movie will star newcomer Arunodoy Singh who plays the role of the Victorian Casanova.

Now whose our Emma, or shall we say Ayesha you ask? Well none other than daddy’s girl Sonam Kapoor whole be sporting an ultra chic and glam avatar for this home production.

Although the news of the moment is the rumor of Dad Anil Kapoor playing Sonam’s onscreen father too in the film. No last word has been given on this news because Anil remains hesitant at the idea of playing Sonam’s father when he still acts opposite actresses like Katrina Kaif and Kareena Kapoor.

There’s so much wrong in that article that we have to giggle, but here’s hoping that the underlying stuff is right!
