Trak.in reports that Ayesha is forty percent shot:
“New Delhi, Oct 22 (IANS) Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor, who was in the capital for over a month to shoot for her upcoming venture â€˜Ayeshaâ€™, says the film is 40 percent complete.
â€˜We are done with 40 percent of the shooting for â€˜Ayeshaâ€™ and now we will resume the rest in Mumbai,â€™ Sonam told IANS here.
â€˜Ayeshaâ€™ has been shot across the capital as well as in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand.
Made under the banner of her father actor-producer Anil Kapoor, the movie is being produced by her sister Rhea.
Also starring Abhay Deol in the lead, â€˜Ayeshaâ€™ is an adaptation of Jane Austenâ€™s novel â€˜Emmaâ€™ and is about the perils of misconstrued romance.”
Here’s an interesting interview with one of the stars of Ayesha, Abhay Deol (“Mr. Knightley”): “Call me casual”
“Abhayâ€™s been shooting for Aisha â€“ the film based on Jane Austenâ€™s Emma in which heâ€™s cast opposite Sonam Kapoor â€“ in Delhi too. Is this his attempt to do offbeat stuff? â€œI donâ€™t see my work as offbeat. Itâ€™s something I like to do and am comfortable with,â€ he said. But he does do offbeat stuff â€“ like going off to the US for a welding course just after the success of Dev. D? â€œI did, and I also think itâ€™s logical for me to take a break if Iâ€™ve shot three films back-to-back,â€ he answered.”
