Veere Di Wedding was supposed to go on floors in the beginning of 2016, but due to Kareena Kapoor Khan’s pregnancy, the shooting of the film was pushed by almost eighteen months. The best thing to happen during this time, that acted as a great example in Hindi Cinema, was that producers Ekta Kapoor and Rhea Kapoor didn’t replace Bebo and waited for her. Talking about the same, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja said, “We were very open to shooting with Kareena even when she was pregnant. Unfortunately, you cannot get insurance if you’re pregnant and making a film without insurance is impossible. We did not know about this before.”
The Prem Ratan Dhan Payo actress further added, “As women, we need to stand by each other in every way possible. After Kareena said ‘yes’ to Veere Di Wedding, there were other actresses who wanted to do the role and we could have gone ahead with anybody else. But she was the best fit for the role, the first choice, and an irreplaceable part of the film. Someone as committed and talented as she is, deserves a team that waits for her.”
Also starring Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania, Veere Di Wedding releases on 1st June.
