Bollywood star Kareena Kapoor has conveyed to film maker Madhur Bhandarkar through  the dialogue writer Niranjan Iyengar that she wants to do away with a certain track in his film Heroine, which she wants to star in, reports Mumbai Mirror.

The report said, Kareena  feels it mirrors her life with her boyfriend Saif Ali Khan; it is primarily the reason why she is still keeping Bhandarkar at bay and not signing on the dotted line.

Explaining what is bothering Kareena, a source close to the film Heroine told Mumbai Mirror:  “Kareena has conveyed to Madhur via Niranjan that a leading track in the film which finds her in a relationship with a top Bollywood hero who has two kids and is separated from his wife resembles too much what is happening in her life, vis-a-vis her involvement with Saif.”

So what about Kareena's issues of not wanting to do lovemaking scenes with the five men who come into her life in the film? “That is a small reason and that can be shot aesthetically. Kareena too knows that,” quips the source.

Kareena and Madhur are expected to meet in the third week of this month. “But a samjhauta (compromise) is not likely. While Kareena is adamant on her stand, Madhur too won't budge. Aise chala toh yeh film shaayad banegi hi nahi.” No prizes for guessing that Niranjan will also be a part of that meeting.

While Madhur remained unavailable for comment, Niranjan said, “I am not aware of the story of Heroine. I have been asked to write only the dialogues of the film. Speak to Manoj Tyagi and Anuraadha Tewari who are penning its screenplay.”

Manoj Tyagi said, “The only delay in Heroine is that Madhur has been very busy these days.” When contacted, Anuraadha Tewari said, “We haven't yet locked the script. Writers don't get into the casting of a film, that's strictly between the director and the actor. As far as I know, Kareena is not running away from Heroine.”

When Mumbai Mirror texted Kareena, her spokesperson shot back, “This news is absolutely false and completely baseless.”
