On the professional front, Sonam Kapoor will be next seen in Veera Di Wedding that will be helmed by her sister Rhea Kapoor. Along with with her will star Kareena Kapoor Khan and Swara Bhaskar in this flick. After geeting tremendous response for her last film Neerja, fans are now expecting an exciting role from her. Talking about the film, co-maker Ekta Kapoor said, ” Rhea and I met to shake hands and not work together, but it is such a fabulous script that my heart is set on it. It is the first film on girl-bonding, the first young film on sisterhood in India, after several stories on boys like Dil Chahta Hai and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. I have been a part of Veere Di Wedding from its inception and I can tell you, it will be a cult film. I want to be out there promoting an all-woman cast.”

Well, we hope that Sonam Kapoor stays strong through this sad situation and emerges stronger through her films.
