The constant comparisons between Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Kareena Kapoor over Madhur Bhandarkar's most-ambitious project Heroine, has remained an unavoidable topic till date. The Ash vs Bebo topic has yet again hit the headlines after Madhur Bhandarkar has recently released the first poster of Heroine, that features Kareena Kapoor.
It is a known fact that Bhandarkar had unceremoniously dropped Aishwarya from Heroine since the actress was then reported pregnant. The first look of the movie, with Aishwarya Rai, was released as part of the 64th Cannes Film Festival. The first look poster was similar to those magazine covers with words like "Caught in the act with Cricketer ‘Friend'!" and "Revealed: Blow by Blow account of what happened that night". Without a doubt, no one could ever deny that Aishwarya just looked heart-stoppingly gorgeous.
On the other hand, Kareena's recent first look poster of Heroine, shows a glamorous Bebo in a shimmery tank top, lying on a bed, surrounded by glossies and tipped over wine glass. It is believed that the Heroine poster is a copy of one of Mariah Carey's promotional photos from her album The Emancipation of Mimi. That's not the end, the poster also closely resembles the cover page of the book The Lost Flamingoes Of Bombay, written by author Siddharth Dhanvant Sanghvi.
Keeping the starry cat fights and other controversies away, we believe both Ash and Kareena are beautiful and extremely talented actresses. While Ash has impressed the audience with her drop dead gorgeous looks combined with good acting abilities, Bebo too has the ability to captivate the viewers with her charm and talent.
It's not new that both the actresses pose a tough competition against each other, on professional grounds. Yet, a big question is left to the audience that which of the Heroine posters (Ash/Bebo) looks better and promising?
