Heroine runs into trouble in UAE
Madhur Bhandarkar and UTV Motion Pictures’ upcoming Kareena Kapoor-starrer Heroine has run into trouble in the Middle East. The damage has been done by the first promo of the film in which Kareena, accusing the media of holding preconceived notions about actresses, says, "Heroine ne gaadi li toh business man ne gift kiya... aur God forbid Dubai gayi, toh uska rate card ban jaata hai.”
This particular dialogue hasn't gone down too well and has hurt the sentiments of people in the United Arab Emirates. Understandably, the media in the Emirates has not taken too kindly to the dialogue and has accused the director of 'ignorance' and said that the immoral reference to the city wasn’t required at all.
Now, to appease the sentiments of the people there, the makers have collectively decided to change the controversial dialogue in the copy of the film that will be screened in UAE. It is being said that the word Dubai will either be muted or dubbed with a suitable alternative.
