There’s fierce competition among actors Ranbir Kapoor, Imran Khan and Prateik Babbar to star alongside Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Madhur Bhandarkar’s forthcoming film Heroine. Madhur Bhandarkar’s much hyped project Heroine, has always made it to the headlines, be it for the wrong or right reasons. A few days ago, there were reports in the media informing that Bhandarkar has approached Ranbir Kapoor, Imran Khan and Prateik Babbar for the role of a young lover to actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Heroine. According to reports, the chosen actor will play the role of a young actor who has an affair with Aishwarya, and he uses her influence for his own personal gain. There are also a few steamy scenes between Aishwarya and the actor. While there’s still doubt as to who will play the above mentioned role, Arjun Rampal has already been cast for the male lead role. The actor for the other male role will be chosen in the weeks to come by director Madhur Bhandarkar himself. Meanwhile, Madhur was quite stunned by the reports about the second male lead of Heroine. “I am keen to know the source of this news. Now how did this news originate? I haven’t approached Ranbir, Imran or Prateik at all and there’s no question of approaching them either. In fact, the principal role will be enacted by Arjun Rampal. The remaining casting will fall in place later. Why this hullabaloo?” said Madhur.
