Actress Sonam Kapoor is having a busy year. The elegant daughter of superstar Anil Kapoor has been shooting films back-to-back and is in no mood to slow down. So much so, that she is celebrating her birthday today i.e. 9th June, far away from home. In fact, she is in Scotland, on the sets of Pankaj Kapur’s Mausam that co-stars Shahid Kapur. Sources from the sets of Mausam say that the unit has planned a surprise birthday special for their leading lady. Sonam’s Mom Sunita is already with her in Scotland and Papa Anil plans to surprise her by flying down there.
To celebrate her birthday the team of Sonam’s forthcoming film Aisha, released the film’s first look. Produced by Anil Kapoor Films Company, the movie is doubly important for the Kapoor family as it also marks the debut of younger sister Rhea Kapoor as producer.
Aisha is an adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic novel, Emma with Sonam Kapoor playing the protagonist. Directed by Rajshree Ojha, it co-stars Abhay Deol, Cyrus Sahukar, Ira Dubey among others and is slated to release on 6th August 2010. It has been shot extensively in Mumbai, Delhi, and Rishikesh.
Sonam’s fans have been waiting in anticipation for the first look of the film. Within hours of creating groups and pages of the movie on social networking sites, the response has been tremendous.
Here is that first look of Aisha courtesy official Aisha site. If the first look is anything to go by, Sonam Kapoor has just got herself a winner.
