Ekta Kapoor refutes rumours, confirms producing ‘Veere Di Wedding’


Last year there were reports that ‘Veere Di Wedding’ co-producer Ekta Kapoor has backed out of the project. This, combined with Kareena Kapoor’s pregnancy, caused a delay in the film which was supposed to start shooting in October 2016. There were also rumours of the film going overbudget.

Now, Ekta has put to rest all the rumours and clarified that her production banner Balaji Motion Pictures is onboard for the chick flick starring Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania.

Ekta took to Instagram today and posted a collage of pictures of the film’s cast and producers, and wrote, “@ruchikaakapoor will hate me robbing her chance for a formal announcement! But wat d hell! @balajimotionpictures on board wid it's favourite n most loved venture!!!bring it on!!! #lovemyveeres.”

The black-and-white pictures has Kareena, Sonam, Swara and Shikha in one photo. Another picture has the gorgeous Kareena and Sonam posing together, while a third one has Sonam posing with her sister Rhea, who is also producing the film, and Ekta herself.

‘Veere Di Wedding’ will be Kareena’s first movie after her childbirth. The movie is set to roll next month. “I am excited about it. The film will roll in May. Sonam and Rhea (producer of the film) are good friends, so the film will be special,” Kareena had earlier said speaking about the film.

She also said, “There are four strong women characters in the film. This is the perfect time for me to do this movie since I am in the best phase of my life.”

Meanwhile, there were reports that another film with a similar title – ‘Veerey Ki Wedding’, starring Jimmy Shergill and debutante Diljott, has already completed 80 percent of its shooting. A Mid-day report last month quoted a member of the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPAA) saying that the Sonam and Kareena starrer film might have to choose a new title as its shooting was yet to commence.
