Kareena begins 'Heroine' shooting

After  lots of speculation and controversies, finally Madhur Bhandarkar has started shooting for ‘Heroine’ with his dream heroine Kareena Kapoor. As Kareena begins shooting for ‘Heroine’, Madhur looked very happy and content. He almost went into depression when the shooting halted after few shots with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The day started with prayers for the 26/11 victims.

"The first day at the shoot is always the feeler days. The bundled up energy that we all have is now going to be occupied in weaving together a story that we want our audiences to see. HEROINE is a very contemporary subject of today's time. It has different premises and different strata that I am going to deal with here. This movie, like all my other movies, is a mix of facts and fiction. I am happy and looking forward to each day as it comes," says Madhur.

Present on the set was the lead heroine Kareena Kapoor and male lead Arjun Rampal. It was also Arjun Rampal’s birthday and he cut cakes on the set. "It is a special day indeed. Madhur is a dear friend and I am glad that we are finally working together. I am really looking forward to it," says Arjun.

Also seen on the sets were Ronnie Screwvala, Chairman UTV Group and Siddharth Roy Kapur, CEO of UTV Motion Pictures. "It was fabulous to be on the sets for the first day of shoot of HEROINE with the entire cast and crew. A whole lot of positive creative energies gearing up to bring audiences something truly special in 2012. With Madhur's clear and focused vision to guide the team, the HEROINE journey is well and truly underway," says Siddharth.

Directed by Madhur Bhandarkar, the film stars Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Randeep Hooda and Shahana Goswami. The music of the movie will be composed by Salim-Sulaiman.
