It’s not only the elder daughter of Anil Kapoor who is creating ripples in B-town, his younger daughter Rhea is also gearing up for a filmy stint.

Sonam Kapoor ’s younger sibling Rhea Kapoor is turning producer with movie Ayesha which has the former in the lead role. It is based on Jane Austen’s celebrated novel ‘Emma’ and Sonam’s character is of a desi Emma who is independent, young, mature and likes to play matchmaker for others.

It is believed that dad Anil Kapoor wasn’t so happy with the kind of movies Sonam was offered after Saawariya . So he decided an exclusive movie to showcase his dear daughter’s acting talent. He roped his talented second daughter for this flick to act as an official producer though the movie will be produced by Kapoor senior himself.



Rhea Kapoor is an alumnus of Dhirubhai Ambani International School and is acting as an assistant to debutant director Ayaan Mukherji, who is Kajol ’s cousin, for Karan Johar ’s Wake Up Sid .

Rhea, like Sonam, is a tall pretty girl and has started out the same way like her sis did a few years back. Sonam, too, was an assistant director before Sanjay Leela Bhansali made her act in ‘Saawariya’.

It’s been reported that designer Mona May of ‘Enchanted’ fame will dress Sonam for ‘Ayesha’. As for now, papa Anil is busy with production plans of the movie, while the awesome twosome sisters will be in Los Angeles for costume trial sessions.

Sonam shares a great rapport with Rhea and both the girls have been spotted partying together many a time. In fact, both the sisters are creative and have started working together on various aspects of ‘Ayesha’.
