Anil Kapoor ropes in award winning writer for Ayesha

When it comes to his daughter, Bollywood actor-producer Anil Kapoor wants the best. He has roped in award-winning writer Manu Rishi to pen dialogues for Sonam Kapoor’s next film ‘Ayesha’.

Based on Jane Austen’s “Emma”, “Ayesha” is a romantic comedy about an ultra modern girl who is wooed by three men. While Sonam is playing the female lead, Abhay Deol, Arunoday Singh and VJ Cyrus Sahukar will woo her in the movie. The film is being produced by Sonam’s sister Rhea under their father’s banner.

For the movie, Delhi boy Rishi had to pen "sophisticated" lines - a complete change from what he wrote for the earlier film “Oye Lucky Lucky Oye”

In ‘Oye Lucky...’, the language was very, very West Delhi sorts and the protagonists were not very well read. But in ‘Ayesha’, the characters are from the up market Defence Colony; they are from English medium schools, etc.

The film has been written by Devika Bhagat with Ritu Bhatia.
