Kareena Kapoor plays a diva at the prime of her career in ‘Heroine’
After the film got shelved due to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan`s pregnancy, Kareena Kapoor stepped in to save the project. However, Bhandarkar maintains that Bebo was the original choice for the role.
“Heroine is an extravagant project and they are leaving no stone unturned to make it look as glamorous as possible," the source said.
