Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine has taken inspiration from various actors in Bollywood. While Katrina Kaif's passport episode is reportedly the part of the film, it has emerged that Preity Zinta has also inspired the movie, reports Mid Day.
Apparently Preity loves to don burkha while watching movies in theatre, so that she can hide her identity.
Heroine Kareena reportedly does the same in the film.
“Madhur came to know about this and decided to portray it in his film,” a source was quoted by the tabloid.
