‘Veerey di Wedding’ is a much awaited movie release of Sonam Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan. There was a rumor that due to a brawl Kareena has left the movie. She dismissed such rumors claiming that they are just that – rumors. The movie’s preview is all set to release and the actors are all very excited.
Veerey Di Wedding – a chick flick?
Sonam Kapoor’s sister Rhea Kapoor is directing the movie and they have roped in Swara Bhaskar and a newcomer Shikha Talsania. Talking about the movie, Sonam Kapoor reveals that it is going to be a chick flick. But it also is going to have undertones of feminism and female empowerment.
This is not the first time the sister duo have produced and acted in chick flicks. They have created this trend from Aisha. Although Aisha did not fare well at the box office, they went on to work with Disney later. Khoobsurat too was a chick flick – straight out of the Disney Princesses’ land.
Cast & Crew
This movie is female oriented but as the title suggest it revolves around the wedding of certain brother. Who the other cast member is? We are yet to know. But Kareena Kapoor Khan has revealed that this movie is about four friends. The four girl friends go on a tour from Delhi to Europe. Due to this suggestion some rumors have started that this movie is about “the sisterhood of the traveling pants.” The rumors have neither been confirmed nor denied by the cast yet.
Sonam and Kareena will be seen in leading roles in the movie. However, the two newcomers will support the plot of the film. A few days ago there was some brawl over the title of the movie. It was heard that Sonam wanted it to be something else instead of Veerey Di Wedding. Although it was a big change, the real question is why Sonam wanted such a change all of a sudden.
We hear that another film with the same name is coming to the market. Apparently that film has already completed more than 50% of their shooting. The other film called “Veerey Ki Wedding” is a film starring Jimmy Shergill and Diljott. Mid-Day also quoted them saying that Anil Kapoor will now have to change the title of the film. It is the only way out for them now.
The film has already gone through a lot of topsy turvy it seems. Right from Kareena’s pregnancy to the similar titles, the film has been through one hell of a journey. After Neerja, Sonam’s fans are eagerly awaiting a good film release. Kareena too seems to have set ablaze on the path of feminism and women centric roles. She has played a strong character in her last hit Ki & Ka.
Sonam plays the role of a middle class Delhi girl in this movie. Her character is about what choices life presents and what you should do and what you shouldn’t. She tries to balance whatever comes her way. Kareena’s character, on the other hand, is more progressive. She tries to manage everything and she also paves the way for the story to go forward. Producer Rhea Kapoor feels that there are not many Bollywood films that teenage girls can watch and relate to. She wants to create that space in Indian cinema for the women.
