|Kareena Kapoor was seen carrying a baby bump on the sets of Heroine, and soon after the images of her were leaked, there was a strong buzz that Heroine is based on Aishwarya Rai, who was ousted from Heroine after her pregnancy announcement.
Time and again Madhur Bhandarkar has maintained that his Heroine is not based on an actress. Though it depicts the rise and fall of a glamorous superstar, the story isn’t a biopic. A few days back there were rumours that the story of Heroine has taken inspiration from Manisha Koirala. But after the stills of Kareena’s baby bump surfaced on the net, the media was agog reporting that Heroine may be the unofficial biopic on Aishwarya Rai.
While talking to a news channel, Kareena Kapoor clears the air and tells what makes Heroine different from other films of Madhur Bhandarkar. When asked whether the film draws similarities from Aishwarya Rai’s life, Kareena says, not at all. The actress further explains that the story of Heroine is a fictitious one - a story that is penned by Madhur Bhandarkar himself.
Kareena further adds that the attention is not on heroine or on her clothes or glamour, but on her mind; more like the 2010 Hollywood film Black Swan, for which the movie’s actress Natalie Portman took home the best actress award at the Oscars last year. Reading that, anyone can get the gist of what Bebo wants to say.
No wonder, Madhur Bhandarkar has promised her that she will be taking away all the best actress trophies next year. However, for Kareena, a movie’s performance at the BO matters more than the awards. The actress claims, nothing is sweeter than the box office success.
After she’s done with Heroine, Kareena Kapoor is looking at marriage with Saif Ali Khan, most likely to happen this year only.
