Models, actresses, fashionistas Shashanka Ghosh’s Veere Di Wedding, has it all. Coined as Bollywood’s major chick flick, the highly anticipated film has an official release date. Movie goers can mark their calendars for May 18th, 2018 and get ready because the film is packed full of fun, friendship, and even a comeback.
Starring Bollywood’s own fashion icon in the making, Sonam Kapoor. This will be making the third time she and producer sister Rhea Kapoor have teamed up on a project. The two also worked on Ghoshs previous film Khoobsurat, and Rajshree Ojha’s Aisha. One can barely hold their excitement to see the costumes Ms. Kapoor will don in her new avatar.
The cast and crew recently wrapped their Dehli shoot. Sonam wrote on her instagram page. “Last day of the dilli schedule for @vdwthefilm ! What an awesome time!! Love my veeres! #kareenakapoorkhan@reallyswara @shikhatalsania@vdwthefilm and the bestest @rheakapoor”
She also posted this fun video
The cast are truly enjoying every moment of filming and completely ignoring the presumption that actresses can’t be friends.

#Repost @sonamkapoor (@get_repost) ・・・ Dear websites, you can put out as many 'blind items' as you like pitting women against each other, it may get you clicks but it won't be the truth. Must you insist on shoving this tired patriarchal concept of women cat fighting into our film (which is not about a road trip) as if grown, intelligent women have nothing better to do. We will continue to be actual friends and try and make a kick ass movie and prove that women can work with each other, get along and have a blast. Because we can, we are and we will continue to. And on schedule. Please keep in mind how outdated, irresponsible and harmful your narrative is and frustrating for a culture of women who actually want to work together. There is no place for it anymore. Sincerely, The Cast and Crew of Veere Di Wedding (Our items aren't blind) @reallyswara @shikhatalsania @poonamdamania @vdwthefilm @rheakapoor #kareenakapoorkhan #veerediwedding
Shooting for the film officially commenced on September 1st and has a set 40 day shoot for the project.
Also joining the cast making this her comeback is none other than Bollywood’s bubbly Bebo, Kareena Kapoor Khan. The film was set to shoot earlier in 2016 however, was postponed due to Khans pregnancy with son (Taimur Ali Khan).
Unfortunately, don’t look for a debut by little Taimur as Kareena answered in this fun video, “No (Taimur is not in the film), but his mother is in the movie… I think that is enough…You can’t have both. Rhea can’t afford both so it is either me or him.”
