Mumbai, Mar 10: 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.
