The cast of "Veere Di Wedding" yesterday in Delhi said the aim to make the film is to present a normal story about four female friends and not promoting women empowerment. Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, however, believes the film is an entertaining take on gender equality. "It is a female-driven film, but it is not about women empowerment or anything like that," said Sonam.
Swara Bhasker, who plays the role of Sakshi in the film, says the Shashanka Ghosh-directed movie is empowering as it focuses on choices women make. "What was liberating about this film is that it was about four girls, but there was no violence or social issue, just a normal entertaining film," she said. The movie is produced by Ekta Kapoor and Rhea Kapoor.
The team promoted the film with hashtag #imnotachickflick as they didn't want their movie to get attached to any kind of labels. "There is nothing wrong with 'Veere...' being called a chick flick. But when there are females in the film it is immediately called a chick flick overlooking its real genre," Swara said. "Veere Di Wedding" will hit the theatres on June 1.
