If you’re wondering which Bollywood actors filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar has referenced in Heroine, you will probably end up with a long list of high profile female stars.

An insider reveals that Madhur has incorporated rumours that once buzzed around the lives of past and present screen divas. “Heroine has touched upon rumours around Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut, Shilpa Shetty, Preity Zinta, and even  Zeenat Aman and Neena Gupta,” the insider says.

This is what our insider shares about the real life to reel life mo

 Kareena’s character says, “Hum LA jaate hain toh kehte hain plastic surgery karwane geye the.” Some time ago, there was talk about Priyanka Chopra’s visit to LA, rumoured to be for plastic surgery.

 Reportedly, Kangana Ranaut’s passport says she was born in 1981 (which makes her 31), but some time ago she claimed to be 22. This is depicted in the film.

 Kangana also filed a police complaint, accusing former boyfriend Aditya Pancholi of assault. In the film, Kareena lodges a similar complaint.

 When Kareena’s career-graph dips, she tries to hook a wealthy businessman and buys an IPL team. A reminder of the gossip around Shilpa Shetty and Preity Zinta?

 Katrina Kaif was named Vijay Mallya’s IPL team’s lucky mascot. In the film, Kareena too is dubbed a lucky mascot.

 Kareena is shown having an affair with a cricketer in the film, which is reminiscent of Zeenat Aman’s link-up with Pakistani cricketer Imran Khan and Neena Gupta’s affair with Viv Richards.
