Kareena is the most expensive heroine: Madhur Bhandarkar
Without disclosing Kareena Kapoor's remuneration for his upcoming project "Heroine", director Madhur Bhandarkar has called her the "most expensive heroine" in Bollywood referring to her costly wardrobe for the film.
The fashionable pieces Kareena has donned in the film, playing the role of a superstar, were sourced from major brands from all over the world.
"Kareena has worn 130 dresses in the film and many of them have been imported from many fashion hubs of the world. One garment in the film cost me 1.5 crore and I must say she is one of the most expensive heroines in the industry," said Madhur, who was in the Capital recently to promote the film.
Madhur Bhandarkar, 46, who has bagged many National Awards for his reality driven films, said he is not aspiring to get another one for this film.
"I just want the film to do good at the box-office. I want the audience to like it. I have made this film with a lot of conviction. Since I belong to the industry I have tried to be honest with my script," said Bhandarkar.
The film, which will hit 2300 theatres across the country this Friday, was made on a budget of 45 crores and he is happy with the actors' performance in the film.
"I am very happy as a filmmaker after this film. All the actors were brilliant. It's my first multi-dimensional film," said Bhandarkar, who has not yet decided his next project.
"Heroine" stars Randeep Hooda, Arjun Rampal, Divya Dutta, Shahana Goswami, Helen in prominent roles with Kareena playing the lead. PTI
