UTV Motion Pictures has denied reports that Kareena Kapoor is taking up the lead role in Madhur Bhadarkar’s Heroine, that too for a whooping Rs. 8 crore!
While Kareena Kapoor is heating things up with her new look in Bodyguard , news reports are suggesting that Kareena has decided to come on board Madhur Bhandarkar’s stalled dream project, Heroine, for a whooping sum of Rs. 8 crore.
UTV Motion Pictures, the producers of the film have issued a statement dismissing all talk of Kareena’s joining the project. “We would like to clarify that no casting has been finalised for Heroine at all. We further wish to state that no financial terms have been agreed upon and definitely not even remotely close to the figures quoted (in the news report),” the official release says.
Heroine, which was announced at Cannes with much fanfare and even went on the floors, got stuck in a limbo after news of Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan’s pregnancy took Bhandarkar and UTV by surprise.
