"Heroine" is Madhur Bhandarkar’s latest ambitious project in which Kareena Kapoor plays the lead role. Kareena Kapoor replaced Aishwarya Rai when she withdrew from the project because of her pregnancy. Madhur Bhandakar has expressed a hope that Heroine will be a landmark in Kareena Kapoor’s career.
Madhur Bhandarkar said, “Kareena Kapoor is a great actress and he always wanted to work with such an actress, but nothing could materialize”. However, 'Heroine' being a great script will give Kareena Kapoor a great breakthrough in her career.
While explaining the story-line of Heroine, Madhur Bhandarkar said, “it’s a story of a heroine’s life in the present scenario and it portrays how a heroine reaches the top position in the industry and how she goes up with the waves of life and what problems are awaiting for her, underneath the waves”.
Madhur Bhandarkar further divulged that shooting of Heroine will start at the end of November 2011 and will finish by March-April 2012.
