Actor Arjun Rampal, who essaysthe role of a superstar in Madhur Bhandarkar's magnum opus Heroine, says he is clueless as to why actresses are insecure.
Heroine takes a closer look at the undesirableaspect of glamour world of actresses in Bollywood and especially looks at the life after stardom fades away.
"The film does not show dark side of the industry. Thegood part is that Madhur has been able to stick to thecharacter of a Heroine, what her state of mind is like andthat actresses do get insecure," Arjun told reporters here last evening at the first look of Heroine.
"I still wonder why (actresses get insecure), as theydon't sit on edit table, or discuss budget, or are present in producer's meeting, or involved at scripting stage, they sitwith hair and make-up done," Arjun said.
"While an actor will get into all areas so that he canget into direction or production or write a movie. I think one learns a lot of things while doing a film," he said.
Even as the film revolves around Kareena Kapoor, Arjun feels his character does stand out.
"Definitely the main protagonist of the film is Heroine, it is on her. There are other characters in the film. I play a superstar as I felt I could do somethingdifferent. There is a love story between Kareena and me in the film, and later the film revolved around the rise and fall ofan actress," Arjun said.
"Also, there is a message in the film too...that oneshould love him/ herself more and be confident about one's self. It is about why the heroine is insecure and why she doescertain things," he said.
On Kareena having intimate scenes with him and otherco-star Randeep Hooda, Arjun, in a jovial style, said he still remembers "the beautiful, close and warm moments spent with Kareena."
