Is Kareena really a profit partner in Heroine?
While one waits to see what really unfolds on screen once Heroine arrives on the big screen, at least off screen the film is pretty much turning out to be a saga in it's own. So much so that Madhur Bhandarkar could well think of including that as a chapter within his film itself. Even though Kareena Kapoor camp is insisting that the numero uno actress has reached a 'middle path' by working out a deal that amounts to Rs. 8 crores as her overall remuneration, sources deny any such progress.
"It is surprising to read a different theory making rounds every week. First it was said that she had demanded for Rs.10 crores to play the title role of Heroine. Then a few days later it came down to Rs.8 crores. Now it is being said that it would be a mix of fees as well as profit sharing, all of which will finally amount to Rs.8 crores, hence making it a win-win situation for her as well as the makers (Bhandarkar and UTV Motion Pictures). The fact though is that none of this is true and the price as well as deal is all coming out of nowhere", informs a reliable source.
No one is blaming Kareena for such rumours making the rounds though and insiders claim that some within the industry are having a field day giving rise to such speculations and assumptions.
"At a career stage where Kareena is currently, she doesn't need to encourage any such stories. If you look at all so-called breaking news pieces carefully, she hasn't said a single word about her fee so far. All she is saying is that she is getting what she deserves. The makers too respect this and hence everyone is on the same page. However, there are people around them who are throwing numbers, something which has started to seem a little repetitive off late", the source adds.
Meanwhile insiders claim that while there is no profit sharing deal with either Kareena or Arjun Rampal (as has been claimed), the final remuneration is less than half of what is being claimed.
"But again as they say, never ask a man's salary; or for that matter even a woman's", a trade insider quips, "What is of paramount importance is that Kareena has been confirmed for the film and we can now expect a terrific film in the offing. With the kind of insider's view that she can bring to the role as well as the only actress at the top who comes with terrific acting capabilities coupled with glamour quotient, Madhur indeed has a winner in hands. It would be better if everyone starts contributing to making a good film now."
Well that can pretty much be expected, what with the film kicking off with one schedule in November/December and then wrapping up by July next year.
