Sonam Kapoor on Rajkumar Hirani #MeToo allegations

During a presser, the Veere Di Wedding actor was questioned about the buzzing topic of the #MeToo claims surrounding the filmmaker who was also associated as the co-producer of the actor's upcoming film Ek ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, till the name was dropped after the allegations. In the film, Sonam Kapoor is said to play a lesbian character - a young Punjabi woman, who hails from conservative household. Banihal has developed proprietary artificial intelligence technology called Rae that can predict compatibility and makes introductions so individuals can meet the one that would be the right partner. The LGBT community has not been well represented in Indian cinema and from the trailers of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, it looks like a love saga, which was long due. When I met the team of Banihal.com, I was very happy to know that their concept was linked to the very same tunnel, of how sometimes after going through a dark tunnel, you find the right (and bright) match on the other side. So I keep taking these things from her. He admitted that he particularly loved the song 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga' so much that he had to say yes to the film.

Through the TVC, the two Bollywood stars throw light on how today's fast-paced and dynamic world has completely altered the process of finding a life partner.

Sonam, who has voiced her support for the #MeToo movement in the past, said more understanding is needed about the movement.
