Bollywood Garam: While film maker Madhur Bhandarkar is shooting for his most ambitious project ‘Heroine’ with actress Kareena Kapoor in the lead role, reports say that the movie is inspired by the life of Manisha Koirala. The latest gossip doing the rounds is about who exactly is the inspiration of the movie.
Bhandarkar had earlier said that the movie is about the darker side of the film industry. Manisha became popular in the 90s in Bollywood, but faced a downfall in the past ten years due many reasons like alcohol abuse and several failed relationships.
The challenges in her life continued even after she got married to a businessman from Nepal. Recently, the ‘Dil Se’ actress was spotted in a drunk state while she was escorted by a friend to her car. Koirala was not even able to walk by herself and needed support.
When everything is compared to the basic plot of the movie ‘Heroine’, things seem very similar. Koirala has also been in many relationships with men of different ages.
But Madhur was quick to deny that his film was inspired by Manisha’s life and insisted that he took inspiration from many people and not a particular person. Earlier reports claimed that the movie was inspired by the late Hollywood actress Marilyn Monroe.
