Kareena is part of ‘Veere Di Wedding': Sonam Kapoor
Mumbai : Actress Sonam Kapoor today trashed reports, which have suggested that Kareena Kapoor Khan has walked out of their forthcoming film “Veere Di Wedding”.
While Kareena, yesterday, said at an event that she would shoot for the chick flick in October, a section of the media has reported that the actress, who is expecting her first child with husband Saif Ali Khan in December, has opted out of the movie.
Reacting to the reports, Sonam told reporters here, “The newspaper did not clarify things with us (team of ‘Veere Di Wedding’). The story is untrue. It’s a miscellaneous gossip and it’s a baseless news. It’s irresponsible reporting. I am very upset.”
“Kareena is part of ‘Veere Di Wedding’ and she will be shooting for us in October and some portions in April,” the “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” actress said.
Sonam, 31, feels the perception about pregnant working women needs to change in society.
“We all women, be it actresses, sportswomen, reporters and others go through this phase (pregnancy) and it’s normal. There are people in society who think women can’t work during pregnancy. I think they are just being judgemental and unfair,” she said.
“I am very optimistic that things will change and people will not think all this,” she said.
Sonam’s sister Rhea Kapoor, who is producing the film along with Ekta Kapoor, has also stated Kareena will shoot for the film in October.
“The report (of Kareena not doing the film) is completely untrue. Kareena is very much a part of ‘Veere Di Wedding’ and will be shooting for us in October and early next year,” Rhea said in a statement here.
The movie will celebrate the spirit of modern Indian woman. Also starring Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania, it will be directed by “Khoobsurat” fame Shashanka Ghosh.
