Rhea Kapoor second venture also based on book

Mumbai: After adapting Jane Austen`s novel `Emma` to make her debut film `Aisha` in 2010, producer Rhea Kapoor is all set for her next venture, which is again based on a book.

While `Aisha` was an adaptation of `Emma`, starring sister Sonam Kapoor and Abhay Deol in the lead roles, her second film is also an adaptation of `Herogiri`, a book written by an Indian author Mainik Dhar.

"I wanted the concept of my next film to be really exciting. `Herogiri` is a story I`m extremely passionate about because it`s interesting and very different," Rhea said in a statement here.

The 25-year-old producer has bought the rights of the book, would turn it into a full-fledged screenplay and will announce the cast soon.

The book `Herogiri` revolves around an ordinary man, possessing extraordinary powers.

"The title caught my attention. Besides, the idea is relevant to today`s times. Although it`s a thriller, the film is fresh and young. We will start talking to actors soon and all decisions, including the one to cast Sonam, will be taken collectively," she said.
