Is Madhur Bhandarkar tired of chasing Kareena Kapoor for his ‘Heroine’?
From the time Madhur Bhandarkar approached Kareena Kapoor for his ambitious project ‘Heroine’, there have been speculations off and on about Kareena denying the project due to varied reasons. First it was said that Kareena wanted to delete the five lovemaking scenes in the film, which features a Bollywood actor with two kids. It was because her beau Saif Ali Khan bears close resemblance with the character. Again, it was said that quit the film because her director friend Lovely Singh’s father was not allowed to meet Bhandarkar, even after waiting for three hours at his office. Latest reports also have it that his producers want to start with the project immediately – with or without Kareena and the latter’s current work commitments make her busy for more than a year.
Whatever, be the reason, Madhur seems to be tired of chasing Kareena now and inside reports have it that Bhandarkar has had a covert meeting with Aishwarya to woo her for ‘Heroine’. However, Madhir chose to go for a diplomatic answer when questioned on this. He said, “I’m still busy with my film and have no time to meet anyone. I will start meeting people soon.”
Heroine is believed to be a modern-day version of Shyam Benegal’s 1977 film Bhumika, which starred Smita Patil. Bhumika was based on the life of renowned Marathi actress Hansa Wadkar whereas Heroine is supposed to be on a Bollywood actress and her relationships with the five men in her life.
