Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor started shooting for the much-talked about film, Heroine, on Saturday, November 26. The film is produced by UTV Motion Pictures and directed by National Award winning filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar.
The film, which was first announced with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the lead role, was stalled for some time after Aishwarya had to part ways due to her pregnancy. After a lot of controversy and media attention, it was announced that Kareena Kapoor would be taking up the challenging lead role of a Bollywood superstar in the film.
Director Madhur Bhandarkar said, “Heroine is a dream project for me about an industry in which I have lived my dreams and it will be my biggest film to date.”
Siddharth Roy Kapur, CEO of UTV Motion Pictures, said, “Heroine is one of the most anticipated movies of 2012 and for all of us associated with it, that means a lot of hard work over the next few months to meet the massive audience expectations. With an excellent script, a talented director at the top of his game and a superb cast and crew, we’re confident we’ll be up to the challenge!”

Besides Kareena Kapoor, Heroine stars Arjun Rampal, Randeep Hooda and Shahana Goswami. Fashion designer Manish Malhotra has come onboard for Kareena’s costumes and styling. Music director duo Salim-Sulaiman will be composing the music for the film.
