The Veere Di Wedding trailer came out yesterday and we absolutely loved the badass avatars of Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania! The actresses were at their stunning, wittiest, and funniest best at the launch event. Among the OMG moments and revelations, Kareena also told the media that she almost walked out of the film. She elaborated saying:
I got pregnant after signing the film, so I told Rhea about it and that they need to take someone else. As a producer, she stood by me. She decided to change the character to be pregnant. But then I told them that I can’t do this. However, it was Rhea’s conviction that she said, ‘Let’s just wait for some time’.
When asked about her future projects, the Begum of Bollywood said:
Right now, I want this movie to release. I wanted to be a part of (this film) and I am happy about it. I haven’t thought about what I’m going to do next. Let’s see, Taimur is just 16 months old. So I want to spend more time with him. After the release of this film, I will take three months’ time to decide my next project. But I promise to do at least one or two films a year.
The actress continued working in films even after getting married and credited her husband Saif Ali Khan for his unwavering support:
I am so lucky to have a husband who is so understanding. He told me to go to the gym and go back to the studio and take my son along to set an example. Yes, we (women) can do both.
I am super excited to see Bebo in this female-led film! What about you?
