Sonam Kapoor took to twitter to clear the air after a leading website posted a blind item alleging that there was a catfight between the leading ladies of ‘Veere Di Wedding’. She posted the following message on her social media handles:
Dear websites, you can put out as many ‘blind items’ (a.k.a gossip you were too lazy to fact check) 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 fighting into our film (which is not about road trip) as if grown, intelligent women have nothing better to do.
We will continue 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 Please keep in mind how outdated, irresponsible and harmful your narrative is and frustrating for a culture of women who actually want to work together.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.
Good for you Sonam! So well said.
The movie is being produced by Sonam’s sister Rhea Kapoor, while Shashanka Ghosh is directing it. The movie stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania alongside the Neerja actress.
