Nikhil was recently seen in Hansal Mehta's Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story. In an interview with PeepingMoon, the actor-producer confirmed Veere Di Wedding 2 and said, "We certainly want to make Veere Di Wedding Part 2. Just waiting for Kareena (Kapoor Khan), she’s on her way to becoming a mother again. Once that happy and joyous news is out of the way and whenever she feels good enough, [we will do it] because I think that would be topmost on our mind. Whenever she feels good and comfortable enough and wants to resume work then Veere Di Wedding Part 2 would certainly revolve around her, in that sense. Whenever she lets us know that she’s willing to back at work, we will start the second part."
