The Indian actress Shabana Azmi, who has acted in more than one hundred Hindi films, said Emma was all that she expected her to be, and more – warm, generous, socially conscious and funny.
Emma Thompson worked late into the night on location in a West London street to shoot scenes for the forthcoming romantic comedy What’s love got to do with it?
She was captured by photographers in a beautiful traditional Indian dress, with the actress Lily James.
They appeared joyful and radiant.
In the film, written by Jemima Khan and directed by Shekhar Kapur, Emma plays Cath, the opinionated mother of Lily James’s character Zoe.
