After the success of women-centric film ‘Veere Di Wedding’, plans are already underway for a sequel to the Ekta Kapoor co-production.
A source told Mid-Day, “Ekta and Rhea may come from different schools of cinema, but have always aimed to make films that are distinctive, and become a talking point. With the success of Veere Di Wedding, several people from the industry have been encouraging them to work on a sequel since the film’s concept and characters received so much love from the audience. At the dinner, the two had a discussion about the story lending itself to a franchise.”
It is being reported that while ‘Veere Di Wedding’ focused on Kareena’s character, Kalindi’s wedding, the second part is expected to fast forward to a few years after the marriage and how the four friends are dealing with their own lives.
The source added, “The story will require at least a year’s work. Once that has been finalised, they will look at getting bulk dates from the four actors. Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor are keen to start working on the second part.”
The film, which was also produced by Rhea Kapoor and directed by Shashanka Ghosh, also stars Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania.
