So according to many leading websites, there is a scene in Heroine where Kareena Kapoor, playing actress Mahi, is questioned by journalists. One of them asked her to comment about a foreign actress who has been experiencing a successful career in Bollywood.
Mahi replied that the the leading actress (Kaif) has ''climbed up the success ladder only because her boyfriend is a top star (Salman Khan).'' She even went to say that ''her passport needs to be checked to identify her real name, age and country of origin.''
Now we all know that Bhandarkar films are always inspired by real life characters and incidents. This particular scene that he incorporated in the film is deemed not out of illusion but it is adopted from reality. A similar comment about Kaif was made by Deepika Padukone on Koffee With Karan which caused a lot of buzz in Bollywood circles. .
It has also been said that initially Kapoor was reluctant to perform this scene but was taken into confidence by Director Bhandarkar who logically explained that there is nothing wrong in the scene as there are ''many aspiring actresses coming to India to try their luck in Bollywood.''
