‘Heroine’: Resonances of Manisha Koirala’s life?

Madhur Bhandarkar’s upcoming ‘Heroine’ has made a lot of headlines right since its inception. First the issue of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan quitting the film left Bhandarkar in an abyss, and then the incident of the film’s dialogues getting stolen. Rumour has it that Bhandarkar’s brainchild is based on the life of Manisha Koirala. Her stardom in the 90s had left many people surprised, and many more envious. The heights of fame that she’d risen to came crashing down with her alcohol abuse and turbulent relationships.
Her tumultuous relationships had caused a stir in the Hindi film industry, and had set many tongues wagging. And now, she is back in news again. The film ‘Heroine’, supposedly, sketches the ups and downs of the actress’ personal and professional life. Madhur Bhandarkar, however, has denied the speculations, saying that his film is not based on anyone in particular. ‘Heroine’, which sees Kareena Kapoor in the lead role, was also thought to have been inspired by the life of Marilyn Monroe, among others.
