Bollywood is now on the spree of looking South, whether it is to get remake rights or inspiration for original stories. After ‘Dirty Picture’, one picture that is creating vibes in the tinsel town is Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Heroine’.
Unlike Silk Smitha’s life story, there are stories of some talented and glamorous Telugu heroines that are more pitiable. One among them is the story of veteran actress Kanchana. This Telugu woman is an air hostess before she turned to films in the 60s with forcing from her parents. From performance oriented de-glam roles to sexy glam kick, she played a variety of roles with versatility. Later in her career, she suddenly disappeared from the tinsel town after her own parents took her complete hard earned wealth.
She fought a legal battle for years and donated the whole property she had won in court to Tirumala before retiring to a simple life in a small apartment. Sources revealed that Mahdur’s ‘Heroine’ draws inspiration from this story and later on added few more twists by mixing the real story of another gorgeous diva, Sridevi. Ravishing actress Kareena Kapoor is playing the lead role in this movie after Aishwarya Rai opted out due to her pregnancy.
