Bollywood has offered us several films like ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ and ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ and others which celebrated ‘bromance’ among its male leads. However, very few films have been made celebrating ‘Womance’, the female equivalent of ‘Bromance’.
Shashanka Ghosh’s female buddy comedy film ‘Veere Di Wedding’ filled that void as it is an ode to the endearing bond shared among four women i.e Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania. After receiving a mixed response from the critics, the film opened to a good response at the box office.
The film that released last week earned a whopping 5o crore within 6 days. And now the film has already crossed the 60 crore mark on its 8th day. Tweeting about the film’s steady run at the box office, film critic and business analyst Taran Adarsh posted, “
#VeereDiWedding is STEADY at the commencement of Week 2… Biz should witness an upward trend on second Sat and Sun… [Week 2] Fri 3.37 cr. Total: ₹ 60.33 cr. India biz.” (Also Read: Ekta Kapoor: Breaking the glass ceiling and Box Office numbers, one film at a time!)

Ekta Kapoor, couldn’t contain her happiness over the film’s success at the box-office success. Sharing her happiness she took to Twitter and wrote, “Next time I hope when a project with an all-women cast is made we r used As an example to get it greenlit! N disparity in pay is always justified with ‘women can’t open a film’ this with ‘Raazi’ shud shut that myth forever AMEN”
Really, times are changing for good in Bollywood as female-centric films are breaking records and setting a benchmark!
