Sonam Kapoor has three movies under her kitty in 2017. First is the Shashanka Ghosh directed Veere Di Wedding, then there is R Balki’s PadMan as well as Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanjay Dutt Biopic.
Veere Di Wedding stars Sonam alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania. The movie was supposed to be rolling a few months back but because of Kareena’s pregnancy and welcoming baby Taimur, the shoot was shifted to a later date. But now it looks like the movie’s shooting will only commence from June, according to a leading tabloid. The movie was recently in the headlines as its name was similar to another movie Veerey Ki Wedding staring Jimmy Sheirgill and debutante Diljott. Since Veerey Ki Wedding team already has the trademark, Sonam’s movie name may have to be changed now.
Which means Sonam will now focus on the shoot of PadMan which has already commenced. Sonam will be joining Akshay Kumar in Indore to shoot for the movie which will be produced by Akshay’s wife Twinkle Khanna’s production house, Mrs. Funnybones. The movie also stars Radhika Apte as Akshay’s wife. Akshay and Radhika have already shot for some scenes in the movie and Sonam’s character is not yet revealed. The movie is based on Arunachalam Muruganantham, the inventor of low-cost sanitary pads for women in the rural areas.
Meanwhile, Sonam will be seen reuniting with her first co-star Ranbir Kapoor in the Sanjay Dutt biopic which also stars Anushka Sharma, Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Dia Mirza and Karishma Tanna.
