Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine was launched with much fanfare with the director and the film's cast, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal, at Cinemax theatre, Versova, a western suburb of Mumbai. The trailer seemed interesting, and traced the life of Kareena's character Mahie Arora.
"It has been my dream since I was a child -- maybe since I was in my mother's stomach -- that main badi hokar heroine banugi (I will grow up and become a heroine), dancing in front of bathroom mirrors, running to the bathroom in school to look at myself, not really concentrating on my studies, playing my walkman and listening to Sridevi and Madhuri songs, just thinking that one day I will be a heroine," Kareena said with a grin at the journalists assembled.
"I think the journey has been fantastic. I don't think my journey would be ever completed without Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine."The dialogues and screenplay, she said, attracted her to the film. "Three very important people, who have been part of this film and because of whom I believed in the script, are my dearest friend Niranjan Iyengar, who has written the wonderful dialogues and screenplay together with Madhur and Anuradha Tiwari. It is because of all of these guys that I came on board. I am so glad that this film was in my destiny."
