Sonam Kapoor and her sister, producer Rhea Kapoor are really keen to have Kareena Kapoor Khan as part of the cast of Veere Di Wedding. How keen, is proven by the fact that Kareena’s pregnancy was written into the script when she was actually pregnant. And when she decided to do the film after the birth of her baby, the pregnancy was written out of the script. Says a source in the know, “When Kareena announced her pregnancy her character in Veere Di Wedding was made pregnant. She then decided she would do the film after motherhood. So now, the character is not pregnant anymore.”
Sonam says the film is about four friends getting together for a wedding. “One of their friends is getting married. It’s about these women going through a process of self-discovery. It’s about relationships. It makes a statement on contemporary women, not an in-your-face message but a subliminal message. And if you have a daughter, this movie will have a lot for you to take home,” she adds.
All the four actresses Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhaskara, Shikha Tilsania and Sonam have been bonding before the shoot begins. “We’re having ball as we are working on our comic timing. When you have talented co-stars around, you just want to do better. We want to maintain a light-hearted atmosphere through the film. When the shoot gets over, we should say, ‘Arrey. Ho gaya?’ And after seeing the film the audience should say the same,” she says.
Sonam is pretty thrilled about working with the ravishing new mom. “I am very excited to work with Bebo. I’ve grown up in her company. She is one of my closest friends. Kareena, her sister Karisma, my sister Rhea and I have been very close for years,” she adds.
