When Madhur Bhandarkar and UTV Motion Pictures decided to unceremoniously drop Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for Kareena Kapoor in Heroine, all thought that Bhandarkar would shelve his dream project. The reason given for dropping Aish was that she kept her pregnancy status under wraps, though Aishwarya denied that and argued that she was ready to work in the film post delivery.
Madhur soon approached Kareena Kapoor, who was incidentally his first choice for Heroine. Kareena had earlier refused to accept Heroine as she was reportedly uncomfortable with the script and certain intimate scenes required in the film.
The film Heroine draws inspiration from the lives of Hollywood actress Marilyn Monroe and even late Bollywood actress Divya Bharti.
A better Heroine – Bebo or Aish
While Aishwarya Rai can woo the audience with her drop dead gorgeous looks combined with good acting abilities, Kareena Kapoor has the ability to give any actress a run for money by her powerful acting and captivating charm. Aishwarya and Kareena have been pitted against each other for a long time.
Whether it is looks, acting or dance...both Aishwarya and Kareena rule the hearts of the audience.
While Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has movies like Guru, Devdas, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Dhoom 2 and Guzarish to her credit, Kareena Kapoor too has delivered performance packed films like Chameli, 3 Idiots, Jab We Met and We Are Family among many others. In fact, all her recent films – Golmaal 3, Bodyguard and Ra.One were blockbusters at the box office. Bebo even has Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu with Imran Khan and Agent Vinod with beau Saif Ali Khan lined up for release this year.
Now the big question is left for the audience to decide when Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine hits the big screen. Who will be a better Heroine - Aishwarya or Kareena?
