After the highly acclaimed Bollywood version of Pride and Prejudice; Bride and Prejudice (2004 and staring Aishwarya Rai Bachman), another offering in the form of Emma must be brought to our attention!
Reknowned Indian director Anil Kapoor is said to be making a version of Emma for his Economics graduate daughter Sonam Kapoor, who, although has made her Bollywood debut in the 2007 film Saawariya, it yet to make it 'big'!
The rest of the cast have not been finalised but it is close to confirmation that Sonam will be the new Emma in this version of the classic novel. It has been suggested that Emma's fiery character of will be well suited for this young actress.
Although it has been confirmed that this film will only be 'loosely-based' on Emma, What do you think about the prospect of this take on one of our favourite novels??
All comments are most welcome.
