Anil Kapoor’s younger daughter Rhea Kapoor produced her first movie ‘Aisha’ when she was just 21-year-old. It was a romantic comedy based on Jane Austen’s novel ‘Emma’. The movie was multi-starrer having Abhay Deol, Lisa Haydon, Amrita Puri, and Ira Dubey among others. Though the movie was received well by the critics, it tanked at the box office. At the 49th International Film Festival in Goa Rhea opened up on how she faced the debacle of her first movie as a producer.

At the panel discussion under the session ‘Masterclass with Mr.India’ with her dad Anil Kapoor, the father-daughter duo spoke on various issues of their personal and professional lives. While her father recalled his days of depression when he was rejected from FTII, Pune, Rhea spoke about the bad phase of her career in her early days.

Talking about her first movie ‘Aisha’, Rhea said, “I went into depression after #Aisha did not work. Everyone made fun of me and @sonamakapoor.”

This didn’t make Rhea bend down and she went ahead to produce more movies that starred her sister Sonam. In 2014, she backed ‘Khoobsurat’ for her sister and this year she wore the crown of success with the movie ‘Veere Di Wedding’ that not only did well at the box office but also applauded by the critics.
