A source in the know told Mid-Day, “Ekta and Rhea may come from different schools of cinema, but have always aimed to make films that are distinctive, and become a talking point. With the success of Veere Di Wedding, several people from the industry have been encouraging them to work on a sequel since the film’s concept and characters received so much love from the audience. At the dinner, the two had a discussion about the story lending itself to a franchise.”
Word has it that the producers have also thought of the plot. While the prequel was based on how their friendship and relationships went through several ups and downs while Kareena gets ready to tie the knot, the sequel will be based on the journey of the four girls a few years after marriage. Furthermore, the source told the leading tabloid, “The story will require at least a year’s work. Once that has been finalised, they will look at getting bulk dates from the four actors. Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor are keen to start working on the second part.”
Not just that, even the film’s spokesperson confirmed the news by saying, “With the movie faring well, a sequel is being discussed. But it’s too premature to talk about it.” Well, how did you like Sonam, Swara, Kareena and Shikha’s camaraderie in the film? Let us know in the comments’ section below.
