'Heroine' takes a closer look at the undesirable aspect of glamour world in Bollywood and especially looks at the life after stardom fades away.
"The film does not show dark side of the industry. The good part is that Madhur has been able to stick to the character of a 'Heroine', what her state of mind is like and that actresses do get insecure," Arjun told reporters here last evening at the first look of 'Heroine'.
"I still wonder why (actresses get insecure), as they don't sit on edit table, or discuss budget, or are present in producer's meeting, or involved at scripting stage, they sit with hair and make-up done," Arjun said.
"While an actor will get into all areas so that he can get into direction or production or write a movie. I think one learns a lot of things while doing a film," he said.
Even as the film revolves around Kareena Kapoor, Arjun feels his character does stand out. "Definitely the main protagonist of the film is 'Heroine', it is on her. There are other characters in the film. I play a superstar. There is a love story between Kareena and me in the film, and later the film revolved around the rise and fall of an actress," Arjun said.
"Also, there is a message in the film too...that one should love him/ herself more and be confident about one's self. It is about why the heroine is insecure and why she does certain things," he said.
