The film chronicles the various phases she goes through as an actress -- from a glamorous high life to a tragic downfall. When asked if she fears that she will have to make place for other actresses, Kareena said, "I think I will be like Zohra Sehgal who would be working till 90...so tough luck. I am not going to give my place to anyone."
Kareena denied that there was any similarity between 'Heroine' and Vidya Balan's hit 'The Dirty Picture'.
"I am not getting into anyone's shoes. I am very much comfortable in my shoes and nobody fits into my size. I am not going anywhere. Heroine is not a dirty film...its completely different from 'The Dirty Picture'. It is unfair to compare the two films.
"'The Dirty Picture' was based in 80s and this is a modern day story. 'TDP' was about an item girl, 'Heroine' is about a superstar. I have taken on this film because of the script and not to compete with anyone. I think one should stop making comparisons as it is useless," she said.
Also, Kareena is all set to rock with her latest item song 'Halkat Jawani' from 'Heroine' and she asserts that the song is not an answer to Katrina's 'Sheila Ki Jawani'. "No answer to anybody, don't compare it with anybody. It is mine," Kareena said. Meanwhile, Bhandarkar was all praise for Kareena.
"Kareena has done fabulous job. And I am sure and I hope she gets a national award," he said. 'Heroine' is set to release on September 21, which happens to be Kareena's birthday.
