After the announcement of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s pregnancy, Madhur Bhandarkar had been endlessly searching for a new item girl to be cast in his dream project, Heroine. Bhandarkar can finally get back to business as Kareena Kapoor has agreed to step in to the role.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Siddharth Roy Kaur, CEO of UTV, and the film’s writer, Niranjan Iyengar, flew down to Hyderabad to meet Kareena and convince her to take part in the movie. Kareena Kapoor was visiting boyfriend Saif Ali Khan, who is shooting for his next film.
The meeting obviously went well as Kareena Kapoor agreed to take part in Heroine, but only under a few conditions. Kareena Kapoor is uncomfortable with the intense lovemaking scenes with Arjun Rampal and Arunoday Singh.
“Kareena has consented to the snorting, drinking and smoking scenes. Earlier, she had strong reservations against them. Now, she just doesn’t want to do the explicit lovemaking scenes with Arjun Rampal and Sudhir Mishra’s discovery Arunoday Singh. Those scenes are extremely sexy and Kareena is just not comfortable doing them,” a source told Mumbai Mirror.
It is unclear how willing Madhur Bhandarkar will be to changing his beloved script, though Kareena Kapoor was his first choice for the film.
We’ll have to wait and see if the film goes as planned or if Kapoor’s changes will be taken into consideration! We’ll keep you posted!
