When dedicating the film’s success to the producers Swara said, “Ekta (Kapoor) deserves every credit for having pushed and backed this film. Rhea and Ekta have really done a tremendous job in making this film. And I think there was this notion in Bollywood that the masala commercial space is like the male bastion in terms of opening and ‘Veere Di Wedding’ has made a small crack in the glass ceiling with these amazing opening numbers. Now people won’t be able to say female stars cant bring great opening numbers on box office.”

Everyone is loving everyone’s performances. ”
