New Delhi: Veere Di Wedding is just a week away from its release and the promotions are in full gear. Kareena Kapoor, who is also promoting her film with her co-stars Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania, called the film "progressive", according to an IANS report. At an event, the actress said that the audience really impressed with trailer since it has a very different tone. "People have appreciated the trailer because this film's language is very different. It's really a progressive film," the actress said. Kareena added that she enjoyed reading the script and believed people would want to see something like this on-screen. "This film shows what happens in life of four childhood friends. It's very interesting. When I first read the script, I enjoyed reading it. I felt excited and sure that people would like to see this kind of a film," she said.

The Udta Punjab actress said that films like these have been made with the "male perspective" but this is the first time when something like this has been taken up. "We have watched films like these from male perspective in Dil Chahta Hai and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, but through this film, people will, for the first time, see a story through four female friend's perspective."

The 37-year-old actress said Veere Di Wedding is not a "chick flick" just because the story encompasses the lives of four girlfriends. "When we see four girls on screen, audience thinks that it is a chick flick and it will be about their clothes, shoes and bags but this film is not like that," Kareena added.

Kareena Kapoor is making a comeback after a hiatus of two years. She was last seen in Udta Punjab, following which she took a break due to her pregnancy. After the birth of Taimur, the actress is back on track and this will be her first appearance in films after two years.

Veere Di Wedding, directed by Shashanka Ghosh, is a "unique" story which encompasses the lives of four girlfriends who are facing life challenges in different phase of life. The film releases on June 1.
