Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar has rubbished reports that his film Heroine is inspired by actress Manisha Koirala's life.
Madhur Bhandarkar released the first poster of the much-awaited film Heroine on Twitter showing actress Kareena Kapoor in a glam avatar.
"#Heroine's not inspired by Manish Koirala's life. It's a figment of imagination. People should check facts before creating such stories," Bhandarkar wrote on his Twitter
It was reported that the film, starring Kareena Kapoor in the lead, was inspired by the ups and downs in Manisha's personal and professional life.
Heroine is one of Bhandarkar's most ambitious project, which has been plagued with hurdles. The director was left in a fix after Aishwarya Rai backed out of the film due to her pregnancy, after which Kareena was roped in.
Later the films dialogues went missing after dialogue writer Niranjan Iyengar's laptop was stolen from his car.
Thankfully, the film is now on track.
