Kareena's 'Heroine' not going to Cannes
Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar, 45, who is working hard for his ambitious project Heroine since last year has put a full stop to speculation that he is set to launch the first look of his forthcoming project, Kareena Kapoor-starrer “Heroine” at the upcoming 65th Cannes International Film Festival.
“Media reporting that 1st look of #Heroine is going to be launched in Cannes are baseless,” tweeted Bhandarkar Tuesday.
“Me, Kareena and the whole team are busy shooting #Heroine through the whole month of April and May, so no question of visiting Cannes,” he further added.
“Heroine” delves into the behind-the-scenes life of an actress in the Indian film industry. It also features Arjun Rampal.
Bhandarkar had launched “Heroine” at the last edition of Cannes International Film Festival with Aishwarya Rai as the lead. But later, the actress had to opt out of the project after she became pregnant. Kareena Kapoor stepped into her shoes for the role.
Reportedly, post the ‘Heroine’ controversy, the two actresses haven’t been able to see eye-to-eye.
But now that Madhur has put all rumours about the appearance of ‘Heroine’ at the Cannes, a major confrontation has been averted…if we may say so!
The annual film extravaganza is to be held May 16-27.
