Aisha (2010)

We get a peek at the upcoming Bollywood film based on Jane Austen's Emma starring Sonam Kapoor as Aisha and Abhay Deol as Arjun.

"Aisha is a girl with a simple diktat - everyone's business is her business. Arjun is a boy with even a simpler set of beliefs - Aisha should mind her own business. Caught in the Delhi upper class world with its own set of social rules, Aisha navigates her world with a great sense of style and even greater optimism. Caught in her web are her best friend Pinky, the small town girl Shefali, the west Delhi boy Randhir and the hunk Dhruv. Aisha will make sure everyone dances to her tune. And all Arjun wants to do is disentangle that web and get Aisha out of an impending sticky mess. Who will succeed and who will succumb? Welcome to Aisha's fabulous world where playing cupid is as easy as 123...if only that Arjun would stay out of her way!"

Release date: August 6, 2010 in India
(MTA - I thought it was going to be released in North America on that date, no known dates yet)

  1. Dare I say I'm a little excited for this one? Hoping it will prove to be a pleasant surprise as I like the cast.
    Oh, and I wanted to say that I adore your blog! It's a veritable treasure trove of period drama information. Keep it up!

  2. Haha, I'm really curious about it! After the awesomeness that is Bride and Prejudice, Bollywood is more than capable of making a literary adaption film!

    Thanks for the info.

  3. I heard that the movie trailer was released yesterday. Have you seen it yet? I can't seem to find a link on the website. I am so looking forward to this. I wonder if it will be subtitled into English?

  4. Thanks Marie!
    It makes me happy to know that others love to find out more about period dramas too!

    Dazzling Mage,
    I do hope that this one will be fun!

    Laurel Ann,
    I didn't read anything about a trailer, only a reference to a "first look" by which I assume they meant the first photos and the website. I read that they'll be showing the trailer at the premiere of Ravaan.

    I mistakenly assumed that it would be in English, silly me. I think though that they must be releasing it with English subtitles (or dubbed) at some point or else they'd lose out on a large market of Janeites?

  5. There is another Austen indian adaptation, Kandukondain Kandukondain. It is in Tamil.
