Kareena Kapoor Khan will be starring with Sonam Kapoor Ahuja for the first time in Ahuja’s home production ‘Veere Di Wedding.’ The film was supposed to start rolling in early 2016 when Khan announced her pregnancy, but that didn’t happen and even though it started more than a year later, Ahuja says Khan was the first choice and irreplaceable.
As according to Mirror, Ahuja revealed, “We were very open to shooting with Kareena even when she was pregnant. Unfortunately, you cannot get insurance if you’re pregnant and making a film without insurance is impossible. We did not know about this before. As women we need to stand by each other in every way possible. After Kareena said ‘yes’ to Veere Di Wedding, there were other actresses who wanted to do the role and we could have gone ahead with anybody else. But she was the best fit for the role, the first choice, and an irreplaceable part of the film. Someone as committed and talented as she is, deserves a team that waits for her.”
‘Veere Di Wedding’ is slated to release on 1st June.
