Considering Sonam Kapoor-starrer 'Veere Di Wedding' features four women in leading roles, many were quick to jump the gun and draw parallels between the film and popular series-turned-film, 'Sex And The City'. Kapoor, on her part, finds the comparison annoying. "Why are people always finding Western comparisons to Indian films? Veere Di Wedding is a desi movie with stories about women we know. People are still not India-proud. That's why I am consciously doing intrinsically Indian stories. We have a billion stories to tell. It's us actors who need to give that a chance."

Kapoor insists her desi choices reflect in her style, too. "As a fashionista, I try to promote Indian designers."
