The bold look and dialogues of Kareena Kapoor in her upcoming film ‘Heroine’ definitely reminds us of Vidya Balan from ‘The Dirty Picture’. Though lot of comparisons made earlier were denied, the launch of the first trailer has made comparisons inevitable.
However, Kareena is miffed being compared and says “I am not getting into anybody’s shoes. I am very comfortable in my own and I would say that no one will get into mine either.”
She also said that ‘Heroine’ has nothing similar to ‘The Dirty Picture’, and that it is ‘unfair’ to compare the two.
Clarifying that the two films are different, Director Madhur Bhandarkar said “I liked ‘The Dirty Picture’. The film was about the rise of an item girl in the 1980s. Our film is more modern in its approach. The two films are very different and you cannot compare them.”
“There have been so many films based on underworld. Also so many cop films have come like ‘Singham’ and ‘Dabangg’, but no one compares them. Then why are people comparing these two films,” asked Bhandarkar.
Produced by UTV Motion Pictures, ‘Heroine’ also features Arjun Rampal. The film is scheduled to hit theatres on September 21st.
