&pictures is all set to present to its audience a movie that broke all stereotypes about a perfect relationship and explored the aspect of flawed equations, trials of family and the importance of unconditional love and support in modern day romances. The movie sheds light on the lives of childhood friends Kalindi (Kareena Kapoor Khan), Avni (Sonam Kapoor Ahuja), Sakshi (Swara Bhaskar) and Meera (Shikha Talsania) who go their separate ways after their high school final exams and reunite 10 years later for Kalindi’s wedding to her boyfriend, Rishabh (Sumeet Vyas). Kalindi is apprehensive about getting married as she is on the verge of making the biggest decision of her life, while also suffering from commitment phobia. After graduating, Avni takes up law and is a budding lawyer in Delhi. Her mother is on a constant lookout for suitable groom for her daughter which bothers Avni. Sakshi is a care-free girl, who has left her messy marriage behind and now lives with her parents. Meera, who is fondly addressed as Mother Dairy, is married to an American and has a son who constantly keeps her on her toes. The plot traces the ups and downs that the friends face while they learn some bitter truths about love, life, family and each other on a trip to Phuket. As the movie progresses they four friends come together and help each other overcome their hurdles along the way, making their bond unbreakable.
Speaking about the film, Kareena Kapoor Khan says, “This film is quite different from what I have done previously. While the movies I have acted in had a male lead, this story revolves around four girls who are at different stages in their lives and their friendship. From the moment I read the script, I wanted to be a part of the film. I am so glad we made a movie based on friendship like this. Veere Di Wedding is a movie that everyone can enjoy with the entire family. There is something for everyone in it.”
Co-star Sonam Kapoor Ahuja added, “Veere Di Wedding tells a normal and relatable story of a group of girlfriends. Everyone can relate to the film because it talks about the journey of four friends and the audience can live the lives of these characters as they undergo various emotions. I am glad that the viewers who missed watching the movie in theatres can watch the World Television Premiere on &pictures.”
“Working with the four leading ladies of the industry was indeed a pleasure. They not only understood their roles very well, but also came up with ideas and suggestions. We had to only tweak their performances. We had to barely direct them. The movie did well at the box office and I hope that it does even better when it premieres on &pictures”, said director Shashanka Ghosh.
The songs of the movie are not only peppy and upbeat but also catchy. Tareefan became the recent internet sensation and ruled the music charts for several weeks, with Kareena and Sonam lip-syncing to Badshah’s rap. The music of the film is composed by Shashwat Sachdev, Vishal Mishra and White Noise while the lyrics are penned by Anvita Dutt Guptan, Raj Shekhar, Qaran, Rupin Pahwa, White Noise, Shashwat Sachdev, Badshah Gaurav Solanki and Shellee.
