Heroine not inspired by one person, says Madhur Bhandarkar

Heroine is not inspired by any one person, says director Madhur Bhandarkar, who is known for his realistic films like Fashion and Page 3. The director was speaking with the reporters at the trailer launch of his film and was accompanied by leading lady Kareena Kapoor along with actors Arjun Rampal and Divya Dutta who have played pivotal roles in the film.

Produced by UTV Motion Pictures, the film is about the ups and downs in the life of a movie star. "Heroine is not inspired by any one person. The movie is about Mahi (Kareena) and her journey towards stardom and the ups and downs that come with it," he said. am not saying it is not inspired by Hollywood or Bollywood, there is inspiration. I would say that 70 per cent of it is realistic and 30 per cent fiction. It is difficult to pin point one person on whom the movie is based," he said.

Research seems to be the basis for all of Mandhur Bhandarkar's films and the director spoke to many people for Heroine as well. "I have interacted with many people. I wanted to portray today's film industry and its rise and fall," he said. The film has been creating a buzz for a while now. Initially, after Kareena refused the role, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had been a part of the film but later withdrew due to her pregnancy and Kareena stepped in.

The director admitted that he altered the script when Kareena came on board.

"I had no reservations at the time I was approached but I was shooting for Bodyguard, Agent Vinod, RA.One and Talaash and I wanted to shoot this film at a stretch. I am happy that they came back to me," Kareena revealed. The film is all set to hit theatres on Sep 21, which is Kareena's birthday.
