Madhur Bhandarkar has time and again said that his most anticipated film Heroine in not based on one actor’s life, instead it’s a mixture of many real life incidents related to Bollywood actors. And when you see the movie you understand why he said so. In Heroine, Kareena Kapoor has taken a dig at many top actors which includes Preity Zinta, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Raveena Tandon and Shilpa Shetty.
Preity Zinta’s affair with Ness Wadia and buying an IPL team
Preity Zinta bought an IPL team with businessman Ness Wadia in 2008. In the film, Kareena says, “Agar career khatm ho gaya toh kisi businessman ke saath mil kar IPL team khareed loongee.”
Salman Khan-Aishwarya Rai affair
It is said that when Salman Khan was dating Aishwarya Rai, he came to the set of Kuch Na Kaho and pushed Aishwarya on the ground and walked away. In Heroine Kareena’s super possessive superstar boyfriend throws her out of his car and drives away.
Deepika Padukone-Yuvraaj Singh-Dhoni love triangle
The whole nation knows Deepika Padukone went to watch a cricket match on Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s invitation before her Bollywood debut in 2007. Deepika was spotted walking into the stadium and her face was shown on all the screens of the stadium. Later, she was spotted dining with Yuvraaj Singh.

Katrina Kaif passport controversy
Who can forget the famous episode of Koffee With Karan, where Deepika Padukone said that she wants to see Katrina Kaif’s passport, hinting that Katrina has lied about her age.
