'The Dirty Picture' and 'Heroine' movies are very different: Kareena Kapoor

Added by harini on Feb 17, 2012

Kareena Kapoor’s upcoming movie ‘Heroine’ is being compared with Vidya Balan’s super successful movie ‘The Dirty Picture’ as both the movies deal with lead protagonists who are actors.

But Kareena Kapoor denies any similarities between the two movies.

“Vidya (Balan) did a fantastic job and I don’t like clarifying rumors, but I have to assert that there are absolutely no similarities between the two films. Silk was an item girl while my character, Mahhi Khanna, is a heroine,” said Kareena Kapoor to HT.

Kareena Kapoor has already completed the first schedule of the movie that lasted 11 days. The actress will soon begin shooting for the second schedule.

“We’ve got 80 days more to go before we wrap up the film and there’s so much more to come,” she said.

Madhur Bhandarkar and Kareena Kapoor have wanted to work together for a long time now. Madhur had offered her ‘Page 3’ and ‘Fashion’ both of which Kareena shot down. Madhur had approached her for ‘Heroine’ as soon as he was done with the script. But Kareena wasn’t interested in the movie. Then Madhur signed Aishwarya Rai for the movie. But when it was revealed that Aishwarya Rai was pregnant Madhur dropped her from the movie and approached Kareena Kapoor. Kareena Kapoor this time finally gave her ‘yes’.

“Let’s hope we’ll be third time lucky,” she said with a smile.

“Madhur is a National Award-winning writer-director, his films are not your usual Bollywood fare but exciting and unconventional. Heroine too is a journey revolving around a star’s personal and professional life that you’ve never seen on screen before but would want to,” she concluded.
