Bollywood fashionista Sonam Kapoor who will soon be seen alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania in ‘Veere Di Wedding’ is angry these days.
Recently, there were reports about a supposed ‘fight’ on the film’s sets, which have forced Sonam to issue a statement dispelling the rumours.
The actress took to Twitter and cleared the air.
She wrote, “Dear websites, you can put out as many ‘blind items’ (a.k.a gossip you were too lazy to fact check) as you like pitting women against each other, it may get you clicks but it won’t be the truth. Must you insist on shoving this tired patriarchal concept of women fighting into our film (which is not about road trip) as if grown, intelligent women have nothing better to do.”
The post continued, “We will continue be actual friends and try and make a kick a** movie and prove that women can work with each other, get along and have a blast. Because we can, we are and we will continue to. And on schedule. Please keep in mind how outdated, irresponsible, and harmful your narrative is and frustrating for a culture of women who actually want to work together. There is no place for it anymore. Sincerely, The cast and crew of ‘Veere Di Wedding’.”
