In most of her recent interviews, Sonam Kapoor has spoken enthusiastically about her upcoming home production Veerey Di Wedding. She, along with Kareena Kapoor Khan, will be seen in the lead roles of the film that will be directed by Shashanka Ghosh.
However, it seems Sonam may need to change the title of her film, because another film with a similar name has already completed more than 50% of its shoot.
The other film is called Veerey Ki Wedding and has Jimmy Shergill and Diljott in the lead roles. It is believed that the director Ashu Trikha has already shot for all the songs and crucial scenes in Veerey Ki Wedding.
Anil Kapoor, Sonam’s father and co-producer of Veerey Di Wedding, wasn’t happy about it and thus he had urged the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPAA) to intervene in the matter.
“The association suggests that a trademark supersedes any other registration. Legally, we have supported our title with everything,” Ashu Trikha, who registered his film’s title with the Indian Film and TV Producers Council, told Mid-Day.
Mid-Day also quoted a senior IMPAA saying, “Anil will have to choose a new title, since shooting is yet to commence for his film. That’s the only way out.”
The shooting for Veerey Di Wedding is expected to start in April.
