Madhur Bhandarkar’s upcoming movie ‘Heroine’ is not only one of the most anticipated movies but also one of the most spoken about movies.
There previously have been reports suggesting that the movie might show the darker side of Bollywood. But Arjun Rampal, who plays a superstar in the movie, said that the movie only concentrates on one ‘heroine’, played by Kareena Kapoor, and not industry as a whole.
“The film does not show dark side of the industry. The good part is that Madhur has been able to stick to the character of a 'Heroine', what her state of mind is like and that actresses do get insecure,” said Arjun Rampal to PTI.
The movie deals with insecurities of a heroine and her fall from stardom.
“I still wonder why (actresses get insecure), as they don't sit on edit table, or discuss budget, or are present in producer's meeting, or involved at scripting stage, they sit with hair and make-up done,” he said.
“While an actor will get into all areas so that he can get into direction or production or write a movie. I think one learns a lot of things while doing a film,” he added.
Arjun Rampal said that his character was crucial in the movie even though the movie deals with Kareena Kapoor.
“Definitely the main protagonist of the film is 'Heroine', it is on her. There are other characters in the film. I play a superstar as I felt I could do something different. There is a love story between Kareena and me in the film, and later the film revolved around the rise and fall of an actress,” he said.
The actor said that movie was not an entertainer but also carried a message for everyone.
“Also, there is a message in the film too...that one should love him/ herself more and be confident about one's self. It is about why the heroine is insecure and why she does certain things,” he concluded.
