6 Years of Aisha


By: Gabriela Yareliz

On August 6, 2010, this funny, stylish, Bollywood adaptation of the Jane Austen classic, Emma, was released.

Aisha is a hard-to-forget film. It was the first film where I really loved Sonam Kapoor’s performance. And while it has its cheesy moments, it has some fantastic dialogue, clothes, songs– and Sonam is just stunning in it.


I have never watched Clueless, and I was never a Mean Girls fan. I was an Aisha girl. I remember learning some killer Hindi phrases, full of wit, from this film.

Here is to orchestrating things, being vulnerable, trying to make sure everyone is happy and friendship. Aisha taught us, even with the best intentions, things can get messy. But true friendship remains.
