Contrary to media reports, Madhur Bhandarkar will not unveil the fist look of Heroine in Cannes Film Festival this year. The director has tweeted that he is busy shooting for the film right now.
"Media reporting that 1st look of #Heroine is going to be launched in Cannes are baseless," Bhandarkar tweeted.
"Me, Kareena & the whole team are busy shooting #Heroine through the whole month of April & May, so no question of visiting Cannes," he added.

A source was earlier quoted by a tabloid as saying, “Madhur wants to showcase Heroine at Cannes this year, and it seems that Kareena too is keen to head there. She thinks this is one of the best films of her career and wants to go that extra mile.”
Actor Arjun Rampal had said in an interview that he would be happy if director Heroine or Sudhir Mishra’s Inkaar are showcased at the forthcoming Cannes Film Festival.
“I would love to take Heroine there. That is a film that deserves to be at Cannes,” said the actor.
Heroine, co-written and directed by Bhandarkar, revolves around the life of a once successful film actor Mahi Arora, whose career is on the decline.
