Homely girl Sonam Kapoor to go hip!

Sonam Kapoor After playing homely girl in her previous two films, Sonam Kapoor is now set to go hip in dad Anil Kapoor's home production 'Ayesha'.

Kapoor, who has already produced Gandhi My Father , has planned this film exclusively for his daughter. He has roped in writer Devika Bhagat to write the narrative of 'Ayesha', which is based on Jane Austen's famous novel 'Emma'. Sonam gets to play desi Emma, one who is young, witty and rich. Devika has earlier penned the story of Bachna Ae Haseeno .

Sonam will be seen in an ultra-mod chic look for portraying Emma, as Anil Kapoor believes that the story of Emma can be told well in contemporary Indian context. The film will be set in a metropolis. Of late, Sonam has been shedding her traditional looks; her recent photo-shoots (especially for Verve) and public appearances say it all.




Abhay Deol has reportedly been finalized to play the male lead, who is Ayesha's worst critic as well as the one who secretly loves and cares for her. Newcomer Arunodoy Singh is roped in to play an amiable young flirtatious man whom Ayesha adores and pursues. And VJ Cyrus Sahukar will provide the third angle to the story as a guy who wants to marry Ayesha.

Rumour has it that Anil himself is likely to play the role of Ayesha's father - an amazing character who's a hypochondriac highly concerned about the health and safety of his loved ones.

The movie is ready to go on floors by April and it's been reported that shooting will proceed at single stretch.
