Another Emma

Emma is receiving an embarrassment of attention these days. Her name has shot up to #1 in the U.S. for girls, a U.K. movie based on Jane Austen's novel, and starring Romola Garay, is being filmed as I write, rumors are that preliminary discussions for Clueless 2 are underway, and now Sonam Kapoor has been hired to play Emma in the Bollywood version. The pretty Indian actress will play Desi Emma in Ayesha, which will be based on Jane Austen's novel. Bride and Prejudice, a Bollywood version of Pride and Prejudice was a charming movie. One wonders if this new film will enjoy equal popularity.

Stay tuned for the latest news as the crowded Emma train keeps chugging along. For the best site about Emma, click on Emma Adaptations by Kali. Everything you ever wanted to know about our heroine sits there.

Oh, I would love to see a Bollywood version of Emma, if it's made along the same lines as Bride & Prejudice. Loved the latter, such a funk little flick!

There is no end in sight for another adaption of an Austen novel and I am glad for each new version that comes along !

I'm with Ruth! a Bollywood version of Emma would be a lot of fun.

How ironic that the former colonial state is now redefining the culture of the metropole!
