Sonam Kapoor's last film 'Neerja' was a huge box office success but the actress feels that people still have a wrong notion about women centric films.
In an interview to Firstpost she was quoted saying, "Everybody thinks a woman-centric film has to be really hard-core, arty and all that. When Rhea and I made Aisha, people wondered why a girl would make a commercial film about a pretty girl who's doing nice things. That's the way people were thinking. So Rhea and I were like, why can't we make female-led commercial films? That's what's doing well abroad right now. All the hit romantic comedies are female led, the so-called commercial chick flicks. Aisha was a first of its kind in India. After its success, it was easier for us to make Khoobsurat, which did phenomenally well and received positive reviews too. People then eventually saw it for what it was, that we're not commenting on society or anything. So my sister is, like, I don't want to be apologetic about making a fun, female-centric film. Not taking away anything from Neerja, but why can't we make glossy, pretty girl films? Girls want to come and see that stuff, you know."
Sonam's next 'Veere Di Wedding' promises to be a chick flick. Sonam further added, "Rhea is producing it in association with Balaji Films with Ekta. It's got Kareena Kapoor, me, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania. We're four best friends in their early to late 20s, all at different stages in their lives, and it's over a course of six or seven days. So it's a conversation, a comedy, but a female-centric film."
