Are Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal arm-twisting ‘Heroine’ director?

Rumours are that both the lead actors have told Madhur Bhandarkar to incorporate changes in the script. But why? Isn’t the director the captain of the ship?

First we heard that Arjun Rampal asked his director Madhur Bhandarkar to change his supporting actor role in Heroine to the male lead. He didn’t want to be just one of the many male actors signed up for the movie. According to an online report Arjun had long meetings with the producers and directors on this issue. He admitted to it recently in an interview, “At this point in my career, I cannot do supporting roles. Heroine is a love story between the actress and the actor, played by me. It’s a challenge for me because I’ve never played an actor before.” Meanwhile, another report says that apparently even the leading lady Kareena Kapoor wasn’t comfortable getting intimate with Yeh Saali Zindagi actor Arunoday Singh, so she got Madhur to replace him with Randeep Hooda instead. The official version is that Madhur changed the actor because the role was altered. It’s common for film scripts to change even on the day of shoot, but in this case, it seems Madhur is stretching himself beyond limits to make his dream project Heroine happen. But why? As the film’s director, he is the captain of the ship so shouldn’t he be the one deciding who he will cast in his film? Or is it because Madhur is more desperate to make this film than the self-glorified great actors? While once in a while Kareena has exhibited some fine acting skills, lately she too has only been adding glamour to her films just look at Bodyguard, Golmaal and RA.One. And the less said about Arjun ‘wooden’ Rampal’s expressive face the better! So why is Madhur taking kowtowing to these two and agreeing to every single requirement? Is it market forces? Is it because the actors have an upper hand in this situation? All we can hope is that Heroine is be worth all this trouble!Subscribe to me on YouTube

    Absolutely right this article. Kareena is too full of herself I don’t know who she thinks she is. How can you ask someone to be replaced like that? That is so mean. This is what happens when you get a Heorine like Kareena for your film. Kareena is also going to demand a lot of money for this movie mark my words. But I guess this is what Bhandarkar deserves. If he stayed with Aish maybe this wouldn’t have happened.

      both are god quality actresses. But why the hell Rampal for the lead ? its insane… The movie is sure to flop if he’s taken even as a supporting actor! and who the hell kareena thinks she is… demands around 10 crore and self preferences. Arunoday is a terrific actor Kareena! personal problems ? madhur should show her who the boss is !

    I 100% agree…kareena is a below average actress….who is either expressionless or overexpressive.Aishwarya got the movie its international recognition and tremendous buzz. And the selfish prejudiced dork Madhur has used ash’s name to promote that nowhere popular Kareena.Ash is a fantastic actress n wud have absolutely rocked in the role like no tomorrow.Madhur will surely repent for mistreating a pregnant woman…the Movie is sure to FLOP with that kareena n dork.

    The top story could only be a rumor. Anyway Aishwarya DID NOT get the movie any international recognition. How foolish of ASh fans to say that, she is just a flop star desperately wants to behyped all the time. An insecure Ash just pressured UTV and made them announced Heroine at Cannes when she was already pregnant, even though appropriate poster was not ready. little were they aware why Ash was in such a hurry. Also she just wanted to showoff at cannes that she had atleast 1 movie in hand.. so desperate to keep herself in circulation and scared of losing even the ads in hand, if she is doing no movies. ASh is just greedy for fame and money.
