Kareena’s name for the lead in ‘Heroine’ has been spoken about since the beginning. That Kareena had been dropped from the film, because of her demands for changes in the script, brought an end to the topic. But lately, Bebo’s name has resurfaced in reports about the film. And if they are to be believed, the Kapoor girl stands stiff competition from Aishwarya Rai and Katrina Kaif (surprisingly both of Salman Khan’s ex-girlfriends), who also seem to be in the race for the film.
In tone with some of Bhandarkar’s previous realistic films like Fashion, Traffic Signal, Page 3 and Chandni Bar, ‘Heroine’ is said to be the story about the rise and fall of an actress. In the film, the star is way past the zenith of her career but refuses to believe that she is no longer in the limelight. The role is also said to have some intimate scenes which may be the reason why certain actresses are reluctant to do the role. But looking the penchant for his actresses (Tabu and Priyanka Chopra) winning awards and critical acclaim for their roles, the ladies do have something very special to look forward to in his film.
Strangely, though there has been a lot of noise around the lead for ‘Heroine’, the director Madhur Bhandarkar isn’t sure about making ‘Heroine’, forget casting for it!
Who do you think will suit ‘Heroine’ better?
