Kareena and Sonam starrer ‘Veere Di Wedding’ sails smoothly over the weekend


Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania starrer ‘Veere Di Wedding’ is doing great at the box-office. The Ekta Kapoor and Rhea Kapoor production has passed the box office test with flying colors. The film went on to earn Rs 13.57 crore on its third day, thus taking the collection over the weekend to Rs 36.52 crore.

On Friday, the movie had gone on to mint around Rs 10.70 crore and on the second day too it showed an upward trend and managed to earn Rs 12.25 crore.

The film has scored excellent collections in Delhi / UP and East Punjab and other circuits which are dominated by multiplexes. (Also Read: Post ‘Veere Di Wedding’, Kareena Kapoor bags films opposite SRK and Akshay Kumar?)

‘Veere Di Wedding’ producer Rhea Kapoor is happy with the positive response to the film and hopes it changes the way female-centric films are perceived. “Calling the film a chick flick would put it in a bracket. At a juncture where we are trying to break away from labels, it’s high time we had a film that doesn’t judge women and at the same time is aspirational,” Rhea said in a statement to IANS.

“I am overwhelmed with the response from the audience and at the box office and I hope this film breaks the glass ceiling,” she added.

Though it is facing competition from Alia Bhatt’s ‘Raazi’ and Harshvardhan Kapoor’s ‘Bhavesh Joshi Superhero’, the girl gang is expected to sail smoothly over the week too.
