The role of Aisha is essayed by the beautiful new starlet of Indian cinema and daughter of Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, who recently joined L'Oreal Paris' Dream Team alongside other A-list international actresses such as Eva Longoria, Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson. Hollywod is also beckoning for the exceptionally gifted actress, who hails from one of Bollywood's most respected acting dynasties, as she is currently in talks with Ben Stiller regarding his forthcoming film project.
