‘Heroine’ loses her lines

Madhur Bhadarkar’s ‘Heroine’ has met with yet another roadblock. While the filmmaker had once lost his leading lady (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan) for the project (saved later by Kareena Kapoor), this time around, he has lost the film’s dialogues. Writer Niranjan Iyengar, who was visiting his good friend Karan Johar, realised that his laptop had been stolen from his car parked under KJo’s office. The writer panicked and went straight to the police. Iyengar said: “All the dialogues of ‘Heroine’ were stored in my laptop. I have lodged a FIR. Let’s hope I get it back but I think that the chances are slim.” Iyengar had been visiting his friend Karan Johar to plan their itinerary for the Jammu and Kashmir schedule of KJo’s directorial ‘Student of The Year’. However, with the script of Heroine stolen, the writer will not be able to accompany the crew on their trip up north. “I generally go on the sets of most of my films, but I can’t do that now,” he said. His major concern now is to re-write the dialogues for Bhandarkar’s project. “Now I need to be on the set of ‘Heroine’ and rewrite the dialogues. I don’t have the entire backup. I had emailed a chunk of it to Madhur, so that part is retained. But now, the remaining will have to be quickly rewritten,” said Iyengar. Bhandarkar said, “Iyengar has consented to be on the set of ‘Heroine’. I am very thankful to him. Whatever happened is very unfortunate.” When asked whether he will be able to recreate the very lines, Iyengar said, “Those lines are in my head. There is no reference point, though.”
