Kareena Kapoor was taken aback when an obviously besotted TV journalist turned poetic while describing the natural beauty of the leading lady of the latest Madhur Bhandarkar opus HEROINE and compared her cheeks with apples. She was participating in a fashion show to launch the HEROINE inspired Hip Fit Jeans designer wear JEALOUS 21 for women.
Kareena Kapoor blushed and brushed the question aside. However, in her brief Q&A session she confirmed that 150 dresses were created for her in the film that cost more than Rs.1.5 crores. She also felt that she looked most beautiful and natural in her first film REFUGEE but HEROINE is one of her best roles. Madhur Bhandarkar, UTV's head honcho Siddharth Roy Kapur, and Rachna Aggarwal, CEO, Indus League Clothing Pvt. Ltd. also attended the function and addressed the media.
