Yes, after Deepika Padukone, it is Kareena Kapoor who has gone on to take potshots at fellow actress Katrina Kaif and her foreign origin. But before you jump to conclusions, you should know that the digs are part of Bebo's script in Heroine.
According to Zee News, Kareena takes jibes at another actress with remarkable similarities to Katrina in one of the scenes from the film. Apparently, while interacting with a journalist in the scene, the 'Heroine' made fun of the actress, claiming that the latter got successful only because her boyfriend (Salman Khan) was a big star.
Not just this, Bebo even remarks on how the actress' passport should be checked to identify her real name, age and country of origin. Interestingly, rumour has it that even the lady playing the 'foreign' actress is supposed to resemble Katrina.

Kareena was reportedly reluctant to do this scene (possibly for its glaring insinuations), but was convinced by director Madhur Bhandarkar who reasoned that several aspiring actresses did come to India to try their luck in films.
Katrina's passport had become a much-talked about issue when Deepika Padukone had quipped about it on Koffee With Karan. Sonam Kapoor, too had taken digs at Katrina's dressing sense at the Cannes film festival.
Is Katrina making Bollywood heroines insecure with her growing fanbase and critical acclaim? The price of popularity, we guess!
Kareena Kapoor's Heroine trailer
Kareena Kapoor's Heroine trailer Kareena Kapoor lives up to the expectations as she gets into the skin of her character Mahi in the just released Heroine trailer. There's a glimpse of the much-awaited item song Halkat Jawani too. The actress who's seen in various avatars, in the film (since she's an actress), manages to impress with her acting skills. Bebo is seen getting steamy with co-star Arjun Rampal too. After Kurbaan, this is the first time Kareena has done some extremely intimate scenes. The actress can certainly expect some awards for her role.

HEROINE TOP 5
Kareena's smoking scenes cut from trailer
You will probably not see a 'smoking' hot Kareena Kapoor in Heroine, as shots of her smoking in the trailer of the film have been censored before being cleared. The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has decided to blur all images of smoking from feature films.
Three promos for Heroine
The makers of Kareena Kapoor’s Heroine have cut three trailers of the film. The content of all the promos will be tweaked as per the markets they are meant for — Indian theatres, overseas (12 years and above in UK) and the ‘adult’ certified trailer, as originally planned.
The first trailer of Heroine has been given an A-rating by the Censor Board. Director Madhur Bhandarkar is hardly surprised.
Added security for ‘heroine’ Kareena Kapoor
Seven-eight additional security personnel was called for Heroine Kareena when within an hour of filming a sequence of the movie at Veera Desai Road in Andheri crowds started pouring in.
Aishwarya Rai out of Heroine
Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar and UTV decided to shelve Heroine instead of working with pregnant Aishwarya Rai. The production house has announced that shooting of Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine has been put off indefinitely because of Ash's pregnancy. She plays the lead role.
