Mumbai, July 26 : Kareena Kapoor says she is not
trying to copy anyone in her forthcoming film " Heroine", the first
trailer of which has raised inevitable comparisons with Vidya Balan's
look in " The Dirty Picture".
In a way both films hit at the same
subject - the fate, rise and fall of an actress. While Vidya scored a
blockbuster with " The Dirty Picture", Kareena and " Heroine" director
Madhur Bhandarkar insist no comparisons must be made.
"I am not
getting into anybody's shoes. I am very comfortable in my own and I
would say that no one will get into mine either," Kareena said at the
trailer launch held here Wednesday evening.
She also said that " Heroine" has nothing similar to " The Dirty Picture", and that it is "unfair" to compare the two.
out the difference between the two films, Bhandarkar said: "I liked
' The Dirty Picture'. The film was about the rise of an item girl in the
1980s. Our film is more modern in its approach. The two films are very
different and you cannot compare them."
"There have been so many
films based on underworld. Also so many cop films have come like
'Singham' and 'Dabangg', but no one compares them. Then why are people
comparing these two films," he added.
Produced by UTV Motion Pictures, " Heroine", releasing Sep 21, also features Arjun Rampal.
