SONAM KAPOOR REVEALS WHY SHE DIDN’T PLAY KAREENA KAPOOR’S ROLE IN VEERE DI WEDDING
Here is why Sonam Kapoor did not chose to play the lead in Veere Di Wedding
Sonam Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s upcoming film Veere Di Wedding is the most anticipated film of recent times. The film is being co-produced by Rhea Kapoor, yet Sonam is not playing the lead character in the film.
It is a rare sight to witness two top-notch celebs in the same film where one is playing the lead character and the other one is playing the supporting role.
This leads to question as to why Sonam Kapoor opted to be supporting actor in the film, despite it being a home production for her. Sonam and Kareena share a great bond with each other and that is visible in the trailer for the film and the events but is the reason that Sonam chose to do a supporting character?
In a recent interview, Sonam Kapoor told IANS; “I don’t believe that I need to play the central character. It’s the character I wanted to play the most and I had the choice and I chose Avni. It worked out really well…. If I had chosen to play the central character, I don’t think any other mainstream actress would have done the film.”
So, it was Sonam’s fear that no mainstream actress would come on board to play a supporting role if she plays the lead, and thus sacrificed and stepped down to the role of Avni.
Veere Di Wedding will hit theatres on June 1.
