Rhea Kapoor, producer of Veere Di Wedding, is happy with the positive response to the film and hopes it changes the way female-centric films are perceived.
“Calling the film a chick flick would put it in a bracket. At a juncture where we are trying to break away from labels, it’s high time we had a film that doesn’t judge women and at the same time is aspirational,” said Rhea in a statement to IANS.
“I am overwhelmed with response from the audience and at the box office and I hope this film breaks the glass ceiling,” she added.
