Kareena Kapoor agrees to play the lead in Madhur Bhandarkar’s Heroine

All the speculations regarding UTV Motion Pictures and Madhur Bhandarkar's most ambitious film project Heroine finally come to an end as actress Kareena Kapoor agrees to step into the shoes of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and play the lead role in Heroine.

Heroine has been facing obstacles since the beginning; first Kareena who was the actual choice for the role refused the film as she was not happy with the script and had date issues. Then Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was signed on for the film but after 10 days of shoot, she announced her pregnancy. There were talks of her getting replaced by Tabu or Priyanka Chopra. But no one was ready to step into Ash's shoes with the fear of offending the Bachchan family. Then there were rumors that Heroine was shelved.

But now ending all those speculations Kareena Kapoor confirmed that she will be playing the lead in Madhur Bhandarkar's much-talked about film Heroine. Considering that Madhur had written the script keeping Bebo in mind, he will now be a happy man. Kareena's dates, fee, etc are currently being worked out.

Bebo is surely going to be envied by all her contemporaries as she has just wrapped up the shoot for Shah Rukh Khan's Ra.One, and is gearing up for her next release Bodyguard with Salman Khan. She also has Reema Kagti's next with Aamir Khan, Dharma Production's Short Term Shaadi with Imran Khan, Agent Vinod with Saif Ali Khan and Milan Luthria's Once Upon A Time in Mumbai 2 opposite Akshay Kumar.
