Sonam Kapoor starrer Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is just one day away from its theatrical release. The Shelly Chopra Dhar directorial will bring forth a new age love story of two women.
Before the much-awaited film hits the screens, the actress during a media interaction spoke about the perception of people and the audience in India.
“We are not hiding anything, everything is out there for everybody to see. But once we start labelling things and labelling situations then it becomes an issue. Being gay is a non-issue, it’s absolutely natural and normal,” the actress said, as reported by In.com.
“Why should I reveal the plot of any film? We are not hiding anything, everybody can see what is in the trailer. I am just saying why we should label anything. It is a lesson that is being told that there is no difference between any love in this world,” she added.
Talking about the society’s point of view towards same-sex love, Sonam said, “Actually we’re misunderstanding and not understanding that the audience is way more intelligent and way more receptive than we think they are. The people of India are not as regressive as much as we think they are.”
The story of the film with a same-sex love story as we have seen in the trailer. Sonam Kapoor’s (Sweety) family is on a lookout for a groom for her, unaware of the fact that she is actually in love with a girl. Expectedly, after her ‘secret’ is disclosed, the family doesn’t accept it and turns against her.
Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga has an ensemble cast involving Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Juhi Chawla. South actress Regina Cassandra will play the role of Sonam Kapoor’s love interest.
The film is produced and presented by Vidhu Vinod Chopra in association with Fox Star Studios and directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar. It is set to release on 1 February 2019.
