Nine days ago, ‘Veere Di Wedding’ opened in cinemas and the response to it pleasantly surprised everyone, including the lead cast and the film’s producers, Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor. Given the blitzkrieg promotions and the heartening response to their labour of love, the women behind the all-girl film have decided to give themselves a much-deserved break from their crazy work schedules.
Rhea Kapoor is already holidaying in London with her sister Sonam K Ahuja (who turns 33 today), Kareena Kapoor Khan (accompanied by Saif Ali Khan and son Taimur) and Samyukta Nair. A day or two ago, they were also joined by Arjun Kapoor, who was in the English capital for his film, ‘Namastey England’.
In the meanwhile, hearsay is that Ekta Kapoor plans to make a visit to Vaishnodevi Temple in Jammu a few days from now and won’t be back in the city till the last leg of the month. The TV czarina, who has proved her mettle as a film producer on several occasions, wishes to thank the almighty for the success of her recent release.
To jog your memory a bit, Ekta, who turned 43 years old on Thursday this week brought in her birthday at the Tirupati Temple in Andhra Pradesh. She also had a quiet birthday with her family and close friends. She now plans to make a visit to Jammu and spend some quality time offering prayers and reflecting on the year gone by and seeking blessings for what lies ahead.
