Heroine will be Kareena's best film ever: Bhandarkar
And now, National Award winning filmmaker MadhurBhandarkar has set his eyes on Kareena Kapoor and claims that his upcoming film Heroine with the actress will be the best of her career. After her career-defining film Jab We Met with former boyfriend Shahid Kapoor, Kareena appeared in a string of not successful flicks like Tashan, (which only made news for her size-zero) and Roadside Romeo (a forgetful animated film with present beau Saif Ali Khan). Golmaal Returns was a saving grace for the actress which was followed by Kurbaan, a Rensil D'Silva directed film that won Kareena the applause of the critics. The film, however, could not pull the audiences to the theatre and the critics applause soon simmered as gave a box office dud Main Aurr Mrs Khanna.
Kareena backed it with Raj Kumar Hirani's 3 Idiots where she made her presence felt despite the small role in the Aamir Khan blockbuster. But the actress is waiting for a solo hit and the 29-year-old, who began her career with J P Dutta's offbeat film Refugee a decade back, has all the faith in Bhandarkar.
"Kareena has been wanting to work with me for quite a long time. But due to some reasons we have not been able to team up. She blindly trusts me and my talent and the feeling is mutual," Bhandarkar told PTI in an interview. The film, which will start shooting in December, is already making a buzz with reports that Bhandarkar is planning to give Kareena the iconic looks of Hollywood's legendary actresses like Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Vivien Leigh and Eva Gardner.
"This is going to be Kareena's best performance of her life. I can guarantee that. She is an talented artist and she will be in her full bloom in this one," Bhandarkar said.
