Their is buzz on internet that the movie “Heroine” revolves around the life of a once successful film actress Mahi Khanna played by Kareena Kapoor, whose career is on the decline.
The story begins when she is at the top of her career and follows her downfall. And the reports also says that the movie is based on the lives of yester year divas like Madhubala and Marilyn Monroe.
In the movie Mahi is in love with the star Aryan Khanna (Arjun Rampal), who is married, but separated from his wife. Mahi wants commitment but Aryan is not ready. Mahi becomes needier as he refuses to acknowledge their relationship in public. Finally, she ends up miffing a star wife at a party and being dumped by Aryan. Mahi loses her standing in the film industry and gets completely distraught.
And she soon picks herself up, hires a new PR, finds a new boyfriend (Randeep Hooda) and tries to rebuild her career and life. But suffering from bipolar disorder doesn’t make things easier for her. She continues to struggle to find her way through the manipulative and dirty world of Bollywood.
On the whole, the movie is yet another hard-hitting motion picture from Bhandarkar.
