Bride and Prejudice is a 2004 romantic musical film directed by Gurinder Chadha. The screenplay by Chadha and Paul Mayeda Berges is a Bollywood-style adaptation of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. It was filmed primarily in English, with some Hindi and Punjabi dialogue.
The plot follows the plot of Pride and Prejudice, with many elements compacted to brief references. Some character names remain the same, while others are changed slightly, using localized names with similar pronunciation (such as Lalita for Lizzy). The main characters are Aishwarya Rai as Lalita Bakshi (Elizabeth Bennet in the novel) and Martin Henderson as William «Will» Darcy (Fitzwilliam Darcy in the Austin’s novel).
Ashanti sings «Take Me to Love» and «Touch My Body» in the film. According to director Gurinder Chadha in «making-of» extras on the DVD release, Ashanti’s appearance in the film is an homage to the tradition of a celebrity making a cameo appearance to sing a song that has no direct involvement in the plot in Bollywood films.
The film received funding from the UK Film Council with the stipulation that a majority of filming had to take place in the UK. Locations used include Halton House, Stoke Park, Turville, and Cobstone Windmill in Buckinghamshire, and Southall, Somerset House, Little Venice, the London Eye, and the National Film Theatre in London. Other locations used for the film include the Golden Temple of Amritsar, the beaches of Goa, the Grand Canyon, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, and Santa Monica Beach.
