No ‘Heroine’ at Cannes film festival: BhandarkarApril 17th, 2012 - 5:03 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, April 17 (IANS) Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar has put a full stop to speculation that he is set to launch the first look of his ambitious project, Kareena Kapoor-starrer “Heroine” at the upcoming 65th Cannes International Film Festival.
“Media reporting that 1st look of #Heroine is going to be launched in Cannes are baseless,” tweeted Bhandarkar Tuesday.
“Me, Kareena and the whole team are busy shooting #Heroine through the whole month of April and May, so no question of visiting Cannes,” he further added.
The annual film extravaganza is to be held May 16-27.
Bhandarkar had launched “Heroine” at the last edition of Cannes International Film Festival with Aishwarya Rai as the lead. But later, the actress had to opt out of the project after she became pregnant.
Kareena stepped into her shoes for the role.
“Heroine” delves into the behind-the-scenes life of an actress in the Indian film industry. It also features Arjun Rampal.
