Kareena Kapoor was the latest star from Bollywood to heap praises at Kiran Rao’s Laapataa Ladies.

Since its OTT debut last month on Netflix, Kiran Rao’s ‘Laapataa Ladies’ has garnered significant praise. Following endorsements from Alia Bhatt and Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor too watched the movie and expressed her admiration on her Instagram Stories on Friday.

Kareena posted the movie’s poster on her Instagram Stories along with the caption, “What a gem… Take a bow (red heart and rainbow emojis).” She tagged Kiran Rao, Aamir Khan Productions, and the film’s cast members Nitanshi Goel, Sparsh Srivastava, Pratibha Ranta, and Ravi Kishan. Kiran Rao later re-posted this story on her own Instagram with the caption: “Kareena (red heart emojis)”.

Earlier in the week, Alia Bhatt shared her review on Instagram Stories, noting, “Such a wonderful time at the movies…(heart emoji). I absolutely adore these ladies @pratibha_ranta @nitanshigoelofficial (and these gentlemen @ss_this_side @ravi_kishann)…@raodyness, such a beautiful film with fabulous performances by the whole cast! Congratulations to all involved…”

Priyanka Chopra also shared her praise for the film: “Thank you for the entertainment and the education @raodyness! Congratulations on this gem (blessings and heart-shaped-eye emojis) make more movies!”

Sunny Deol, on the other hand, reviewed the film and said, “Just finished watching Laapataa Ladies, haven’t seen such a heartwarming and innocent film in long. All my best to Kiran Rao and team will recommend all to watch this gem.” Responding to the Gadar 2 actor, Kiran Rao noted, “Thank you Sunny ji.”

Set in the fictional state of Nirmal Pradesh in 2001, ‘Laapataa Ladies’ follows the tale of two brides who are mistakenly swapped on a train. One bride is unwittingly taken home by the wrong groom, while the other is left deserted at a railway station. Police officer Kishan (played by Ravi Kishan) decides to unravel the mystery. Based on Biplab Goswami’s award-winning story, the film was released in theaters on March 1 and is a joint production by Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao, and Jyoti Deshpande.

Made under the banners of Aamir Khan Productions and Kindling Productions, the film marked the directorial comeback of Kiran Rao after Dhobi Ghat. Before its theatrical release, the film was screened at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in 2023. It received a standing ovation from the audience present at the festival.
