Reflecting a lack of coordination between temple authorities and police, the event turned out to be very chaotic as fans and media persons, who had gathered in large numbers, jostled for space at the heavily-guarded shrine which is crowded on any given day. Due to the disorder, the organisers could not hold the customary interaction with the media at the venue.
Bhandarkar, known for his presentation of contemporary subjects on celluloid, is a frequent visitor to the temple, where he had launched the music of his 2008 film Fashion. Dressed in a yellow salwar kameez, Kapoor thanked everyone who had come for the event. Kapoor plays the character of actor Mahi Arora in her latest movie, which revolves around the ups and downs in the life of a superstar.
The film, directed and co-produced by Bhandarkar, is slated for release on September 21, which also happens to be Kapoor's birthday. Heroine also stars Arjun Rampal, Randeep Hooda, Shahana Goswami and Divya Dutta, among others.
