Madhur Bhandarkar had to face some serious roadblocks for his project Heroine. Now that Kareena Kapoor has agreed to slip into the space left empty by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the filmmaker seems to be in a very happy space.
Bhandarkar has not only decided on the schedule for Heroine start-to-finish, but also started with his next project, Fashion Part 2.
A sequel to the 2008 blockbuster, Fashion, Bhandarkar's next project after Heroine will be co-produced by Bhandarkar Entertainment and UTV Motion Pictures. Fashion, a film that revealed the darker side of the fashion world, marked the debut of Bhandarkar's production house in 2008.
A source told Mumbai Mirror, "Bhandarkar and UTV's head honcho Ronnie Screwvala were both very keen to make the second part of Fashion.
Fashion did really well and also earned the lead actress Priyanka Chopra a lot of critical acclaim. Looks like finally, Bhandarkar and Screwvala will have their dream come true. They have decied to launch the second part to Fashion in 2012."
Heroine, which had originally gone on floors in June with Aishwarya Rai was halted midway due to the actress' pregnancy. The film will now go on floors in November with the new lead actress Kareena Kapoor. "Fashion Part 2 will go on floors in December 2012," added the source.
Whether the sequel will star Priyanka Chopra, one of three female leads in the original is still not decided. "The cast has not been finalised. Bhandarkar will zero down on a few names and then shortlist them. Right now, he is totally focused on Heroine," said the source.
