Earlier we had reported that Sonam Kapoor would soon be seen sharing screen space with Kareena Kapoor Khan in Rhea Kapoor’s venture Veere Di Wedding. However, now we hear that the film has run into troubled waters with Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji opting to back out of co-producing the film.
Apparently, after the recent set back Balaji suffered with the underperformance of A Flying Jatt at the box office, the production house has decided to freeze its film production wing until they decide upon a suitable business model. With this decision, trade circles have been buzzing with reports that Balaji has decided on opting out of co-producing Veere Di Wedding.
With Balaji opting out, we further hear that Anil Kapoor, who is the primary producer, has approached Eros to come on board as a co-producer at the asking rate of Rs. 32 crores. However, reports state that Eros, that has been going through its own share of troubles feels that the price of Rs. 32 crores is a bit too high for this all-girls-starrer. Another challenge for the makers of Veere Di Wedding is the fact that Kareena Kapoor Khan, who is pregnant, is looking to complete her schedule of the shoot as soon as possible before the actress takes off on her maternity leave.
On contacting Anil Kapoor’s office, we are informed that despite these recent setbacks, Veere Di Wedding is very much on track. As it stands currently, the film is facing massive challenges in terms of production, but hopefully all will be sorted soon.
