Moody, sankee, and over emotional. That’s how Kareena Kapoor’s character is described at the start of the trailer. Who would give such a girl a chance in the films? wonders the voice in the background! Pat comes the reply from Kareena herself: “Hollywood ho ya Bollywood, har heroine mein yeh teeno qualities hoti hai”.
Thereafter, the promo slips into some clichés like the heroine (Kareena Kapoor) giving a reality check to the associate editor of a Mumbai daily or wisecracking: “Confidence ke saath bolo na toh film industry jhooth ko bhi sacch maan leti hai.”
Divya Dutta ostensibly plays Kareena Kapoor’s rival. She tells her: “Yeh film industry hai, yahaan ya toh manipulate karlo, ya manipulate ho jayo.”
The trailer is crammed with one dialogue after another, but the one that catches most attention -- not because it’s wonderfully written, but it’s as banal as a dialogue gets -- is when Kareena Kapoor is seen dismissing a rumour in a press conference.
She says: “Aap media waalon ko film scripts likhnee chahiye. Heroine ne gadi lee toh businessman ne gift kar di, diamond khareeda toh engagement ho gayi, hospital gayi checkup ke liye toh abortion ho gaya, LA gayi toh plastic surgery karva lee, or God forbid Dubai gayi toh uska rate card bann jata hai.”
There are also sneak peeks at Kareena Kapoor’s lovemaking scenes with Arjun Rampal and Randeep Hooda. The former plays an actor while the latter a cricketer. Shahana Goswami plays an actress and Kareena’s good friend.
Heroine is slated to release on September 21. Catch the film’s first trailer below:
