Added by harini on Feb 28, 2012

Ever since its inception Madhur Bhandarkar’s movie ‘Heroine’, starring Kareena Kapoor, has been in news for one or another reason.

The movie is now in news again, as the movie’s script has been stolen. The laptop containing the movie’s script has been stolen from Niranjan Iyengar’s car.

“My laptop was stolen. All the dialogues of ‘Heroine’ were stored in it. I have lodged a FIR at the Khar Police Station. Let’s hope I get it back but I think that the chances are slim,” said Iyengar to a daily.

Iyengar had gone to meet his friend and filmmaker Karan Johar to discuss their itinerary for the Jammu and Kashmir schedule of KJo's directorial Student Of The Year. However, when he returned he noticed that his laptop was missing from the car.

But now the writer won’t be able to make it for Jammu and Kashmir schedule as he would have to rework on ‘Heroine’ script.

“I generally go on the sets of most of my films, but ab kya karten?” he said.

“Now I need to be on the set of Heroine and rewrite the dialogues. I don't have the entire backup. I had emailed a chunk of it to Madhur, so that part is retained. But now, the remaining will have to be quickly rewritten,” he added.

When asked if he would be able to rewrite the dialogues soon he said, “Those lines are in my head. There is no reference point, though”.

When contacted Madhur Bhandarkar said, “Iyengar has consented to be on the set of Heroine. I am very thankful to him. Whatever happened is very unfortunate.”
