Web series Permanent Roommates fame actor Sumeet Vyas reveals that he feels fortunate for getting the opportunity to work in the multi-starrer film, "Veere Di Wedding". The film, which features Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania, is a female buddy comedy film directed by Shashanka Ghosh.
"The response to 'Veere...' has been phenomenal. I'm getting calls from the US, Canada, the UK and of course from all over India. I feel fortunate to have received this opportunity," Sumeet said in a statement.
"In Rajasthan, the film is doing very well, particularly in my hometown Jodhpur. People back home are really appreciative of my work, and I'm genuinely thankful to them for always showing support," he added.
Sumeet also revealed that he is shy in nature and also had no sense of fashion as he never really focused on what is he wearing. On the sets of Veere Di Wedding, sister duo Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Rhea Kapoor became fashion-gurus for him which impacted his real life as well. Sumeet also shares that a lot of credit goes to his stylist Abhilasha Devnani for his look in the film.
Talking about his first meeting with producer Rhea Kapoor, Sumeet remembers that he was sitting so quietly that Rhea eventually asked if he was high. He then told her that he is very shy as a person as opposite to his reel life characters.
"Veere Di Wedding" opened in India on Friday and raked in Rs 10.70 crore on the first day of its release.
