Heroine to blow the lid off Bollywood?
The much awaited movie, Heroine is finally hitting the theaters tomorrow and fans can't wait to watch the wonder created by Madhur this time on the big screen. So with this movie, has the reality director also shown the true face of Bollywood?

THE MUCH talked about film 'Heroine' is just a day away from hitting the big screen and the stars were seen vigorously promoting the film. Madhur Bhandarkar is known to essay complex, layered characters but will this film blow the lid off the real face of Bollywood is the actual question that many are asking.

According to Taran Adarsh, film critic, the film will certainly give a reality check to many who come to the city of Mumbai to get some of the glitz and glamour and do not realize the true nature of film business.

Directed by Madhur Bhandarkar, 'Heroine' will release on Spetember 21, coinciding with Kareena's birthday. The film is based on the life of an ageing superstar Mahi Arora played by Kareena Kapoor. Ahead of the release the reality film specialist director Madhur spoke to the nnis. Awards and recognitions are not new for the director or his actresses. He has won National Awards too for his films Chandni Bar, Page 3, Satta and Traffic Signal. Known to make films around strong women characters, in his latest movies he somehow seems to be losing his touch.

Many critics, who follow the director's career path carefully feel that Corporate was in continuation of Page 3 and Fashion was in continuation of Corporate. Like Sidney Sheldon all his films are modeled around powerful, passionate women who see both the pros and the cons of the limelight. However, of late this formula has not been working for him.

Heroine is his magnus opus and he says that it is a dream come true for him to actually make the film. He hopes that Kareena wins all the adulation for portraying such a complex character as Mahi in the film. Kareena Kapoor also feels that it is one of her best performances. Talking to the press she said, “I have given it my all. It is a very very brave role to do - to play the role of a declining superstar. It might be something that someone at my point in career wouldn't have wanted to try out but for me I wanted to do the role and I wanted to work with Madhur.”
