Swara Bhasker had asked Sonam Kapoor to bribe her pundit and shift the wedding date. Here's why

Packed with sparkling chic splendour, Veere Di Wedding is far from distant than your regular chick flick. In fact, it is not one at all. The film starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania is everything but basic and conventional. These four best friends swear, drink, discuss orgasms and live life on their own terms - not so usual in the eyes of the mainstream cinema viewers we say! But, when have Sonam, Kareena, Swara and Shikha done anything regular?

Cut to Sonam's wedding. Stealing the thunder for her three-day-long extravaganze during her wedding with longtime beau Anand Ahuja, the grandeur-filled ceremonies ruled the headlines and trends. Also marking their attendance in luxe couture were Veeres Kareena, Swara and Shikha. However, not many are versed with the fact that Swara almost missed out on Sonam's wedding, and for a very valid reason though.




In an interview with a leading radio channel for their upcoming movie, the leading ladies revealed how the weddings of both Sonam and Swara's brother, Ishan were initially scheduled for the same date - March 12 - which meant the Anarkali of Aarah star would end up missing her industry friend's special day. An astrologer had picked the date for the couple to solemnise their marriage, but Sonam was reluctant to not have Swara at her wedding and thus tried to convince the Bhaskers if their son's big day could be postponed.


“She has called up my parents, asking, ‘Aunty, can we postpone Ishan’s wedding?’ She even offered to talk to my sister-in-law’s parents, because they were her fan. And I was like I can see my brother’s wedding falling apart,” Swara revealed to the radio channel. In an attempt to make things work, Swara made a plan and suggested Sonam bribes her pundit and shift the date of her wedding with Anand. She also asked her Raanjhanaa co-star to keep her parents, Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor, out of the bribe case. We mean, of course, who in their right mind would tell such a thing to their parents?

At one point, Swara and Sonam were planning two weddings at the same time. “I was planning. I asked her to at least tell me the venue. At that point in time, we were looking for various options for a destination wedding. I was looking for flight options from various exotic locations. There were places where the airport was not even close,” Swara revealed to the radio channel.

Thankfully, Sonam's wedding got postponed and, there we had -- Swara, slaying our existence and making memories at the do.

Veere Di Wedding is slated to release on June 1, 2018.
