One of Bollywood's ace film-maker Madhur Bhandarkar recently made a statement to the media saying that Kareena Kapoor's performance in his latest project "Heroine" will be a shocker. He also said that Kareena had shed her "Bebo" image and would be shown in a never-seen-before avatar.
"Her character of Mahi Arora is very contemporary, very edgy, very hard-hitting and very real like my other cinema. Kareena will definitely be a shock element to the audiences because of the way her character unfolds in the film," the 43-year-old producer-director said here at the launch of photographer Dabboo Ratnani's calendar.
"I am looking at the film because I know the story, I know the screenplay, I know the dialogues. She will be fabulous," he added.
Known for his films like "Chandni Bar", "Satta", "Page 3", "Traffic Signal" and "Fashion", Bhandarkar believes "Heroine" will be a milestone in Kareena's career.
"Heroine" is 25 per cent over. The next schedule is in February, March and April and the picture will release in September. The way you people are waiting for the film, so am I. I hope it finishes really soon," he said.
The director found himself in a fix when Aishwarya Rai Bachchan the original lead of the film, decided to quit the project due to her pregnancy.
Kareena is also expected to tie the knot with long-time beau Saif Ali Khan in March this year and hence Madhur wants to wrap up the shooting of the film before that.
