Time to stop blaming her motherhood for this...
Veere Di Wedding was touted as the chick flick that's going to change the game in Bollywood. This genre has hardly been attempted before. The best we have is Aisha which didn't really make the audience go gaga over the genre. Veere Di Wedding is thus a film everyone wants to watch because it's not only because of the theme but also because of the cast. It has Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania in it and could be a female version of Dil Chahta Hai. But then we heard Kareena Kapoor Khan's pregnancy became a roadblock as the actress decided to walk out of it because of that. The film got delayed and now we hear, her pregnancy is not even the real reason behind its delay.

According to a source close to the production, Kareena's pregnancy has hardly anything to do with the film's shoot getting delayed because it was part of the story right from the start. In fact, it's the film's budget that's making things difficult here. We hear the film has already gone over-budget making the producers reconsider the project. It is said that the film might not happen at all if the budget is not reined in. So any talks about Kareena's motherhood being an issue is nothing but rubbish. In fact, Sonam himself had said how it was nothing but a boon that the Ki & Ka actress got pregnant at this time. She told a daily "If Kareena had not gotten pregnant, we’d have had to use prosthetics for her character to look pregnant. So in many ways, her pregnancy is God-sent for our film. Lolo (Karisma Kapoor), Bebo (Kareena), my sister Rhea and I have always been close. Bebo is one of my favourite actresses. It’s a pleasure to work with her.” So clearly, Kareena getting pregnant in the film was a given. It is just coincidence that the actress is actually expecting her first child now.
The film anyway was in lot of news for other reasons as well. There were reports that it is the remake of Hollywood film Bridesmaids. It is a chick flick which revolves around one of the girl’s marriage, sounds familiar to the Hollywood film right? Sonam had mentioned during an interview with a daily that Kareena will be playing her best friend. In Bridesmaids, the story was about two best friends Lillian (Maya Rudolph) and Annie (Kristen Wiig).

What this piece very obvious is the last character in the film. The Hollywood film has a very naughty and outspoken chubby girl, Megan (Melissa McCarthy). Veere Di Wedding also has a chubby girl – Shikha Talsania in the film. So, doesn’t it make a resembling cast and storyline? Yeah, Bridesmaids had six girls, but only four of the characters were important in the film. So, Veere Di Wedding might be similar.
