Swara Bhaskar who is currently gearing up for the release of her upcoming film, ‘Veere Di Wedding,’ said not every women-centric film has to be about a social issue.
Bhaskar was present in Mumbai for a promotional interview for the forthcoming film, “Veere Di wedding’.
‘Veere Di Wedding,’ which talks about four childhood girlfriends and their life stories is just a commercial film and not about an issue said one of the lead actress, Swara Bhaskar.
“I don’t think, every women-centric film has to be about an issue or any needs to come out with a social agenda. I do think such films need to be made, and people need to know about the issues. I come from the same background but not every film need to be about an issue. We can have a commercial film about women where everyone is having fun and while doing all of that maybe say something different and that’s ‘Veere Di Wedding’.”
The ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ actor said she is excited about the film’s release because it is a special film for her.
“I am very excited for this film because Veere di wedding is a very special film for me. I have played a role like this before, I haven’t played a rich character before which is out and out glamorous. And also I think to do a lead role in the mainstream commercial film next Kareena and Sonam is a big deal. So far I have only played supporting roles in commercial films.”
Swara was seen sporting a white Atelier Zuhra dress on the song launch of the film ‘Veere di wedding’. When it turned into a meme about the famous Nirma girl from the washing powder advertisement, Swara joined the crowd for a few laughs, she said, “I thought it was funny when you become a meme on the internet, it means you have arrived. It means you are on the public’s mind. I thought the Nirma one was very funny.”
Directed by Shashanka Ghosh, the film revolves around four friends attending a wedding. It stars Kareena Kapoor as one of the leads who is getting married, along with friends as Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar, and Shikha Talsania who have their own stories to tell.
Presented by Balaji Motion Pictures, Anil Kapoor Films & Communication Network and Saffron Broadcast & Media Ltd the film is scheduled to release on 1st June.
