The first poster of Shashanka Ghosh’s directed film ‘Veere Di Wedding’ is released on 25 October 2017. It is a spectacular poster showing Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Shikha Talsania, and Swara Bhaskar dressed in Lehengas, Sports Turbans, Sherwanis and having a great fun with dancing. While all the three girls look very happy and cheering about the wedding, Swara Bhaskar is seen in a different look. From her facial expression, it appears that she has something else in her mind. Anyway, this is what the fun is all about.
This romantic comedy film is produced by Rhea Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor and Nikhil Dwivedi while its story is written by Mehul Suri and Nidhi Mehra. The release date of the film as shown on the poster is 18 May 2018. The film stars all these four girls (friends) in a lead role attending a wedding.
The film is produced under the banner of Balaji Motion Pictures and the filmmakers have also chosen Sumeet Vyas and Vivek Mushran for the male cast. Badshah is working on the soundtrack of the movie.
Film development and controversy:
In December 2015, Sonam Kapoor told that she would be working with her sister Rhea Kapoor’s project and she also wrote this on twitter. Sonam finally announced this project in June 2016 by her Instagram account.
The shooting of the film got delayed due to the pregnancy of Kareena Kapoor but the main photography started in September 2017. Besides Delhi, rest of the film will be shot in Mumbai and Bangkok. Katrina Kaif and Huma Qureshi were chosen as the initial cast but both of them left this project. Sumeet Vyas is playing the role of Kareena’s boyfriend in the film.
Since the project was delayed a lot, so a Punjabi film with a similar title ‘Veerey Ki Wedding’ was launched which starred Jimmy Shergill. Anil and Reha Kapoor took this matter in high court but they lost the legal battle.
Finally, Reha decided that she will retain the title ‘Veere Di Wedding’ for her project.
