Kareena Kapoor Heroine
Despite a string of negative reviews from the critics of his recent release Heroine, Madhur Bhandarkar stands up for his type of cinema. Is the National Award-winning director getting hyper-possessive about his own creations?
His film Heroine might not have lived up to all the expectations and hype around it, but that does not stop director Madhur Bhandarkar from justifying the quality of his brand of films. In fact, the National Award-winning director is in defense mode these days. Ask him about the mixed reactions his Kareena Kapoor-starrer has got at the BO and Bhandarkar veers away from talk about Heroine. Instead, he gives a small lecture on the commerce of movie-making and draws unnecessary parallels. “Honestly, I am happy. The film has grossed Rs 25 crore in India in the first three days of its release. I made the film in Rs 21 crore. The total collections of Fashion were Rs 27 crore,” said Madhur in an interview. Here’s how Mr B tackled the volley of interesting questions….with not-so-convincing answers.
