Last year, producer Rhea Kapoor managed a casting coup of sorts, when she signed sister Sonam, alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan for Veere Di Wedding, to be directed by Shashanka Ghosh of Khoobsurat fame. The film was all set to go on floors last September, but Kareena excused herself and went on her maternity break.
While Bebo was busy with her first born Taimur, Sonam Kapoor took on Akshay Kumar-starrer Padman and subsequently was roped in for Sanjay Dutt biopic too, which kept her on her toes.
The makers then decided to roll in May, however now we hear that the film will finally go on floors in August this year.
Speaking exclusively to India Today TV, Rhea Kapoor confirmed, “Yes, it’s going to go on floors in August and we would be shooting a little bit of it in May though, minimally, but Sonam is going to finish Padman and Dutt first.”
She continued, “And of course Kareena, she has not really gone away. She just had a human being and now it’s going to be her time to get back to work and I am so excited. So August seems like the ideal time and we will finish it in one shot. It’s a 55-day film and it’s going to be great.”
