Kareena Kapoor and Arjun
Madhur Bhandarkar's ambitious project Heroine hit theatres today. And the question on most people's mind is "where's the hero?" TOI found out that Arjun Rampal is tucked away in Istanbul, perhaps to recharge himself before starting promotions of Prakash Jha's Chakravyuh. Interestingly, the actor had been missing from the promotions of Heroine for a long time. In fact, on one occasion, when asked about her hero, lead actress Kareena Kapoor had to jokingly say that her director, Bhandarkar was the hero of the film. And through all of this, Arjun had been missing from the events. A friend of the actor said in his defence, "Arjun did go for a couple of promotional events. But the focus of the film is Kareena. After all it is titled Heroine. Very few questions came Arjun's way and they were mainly about his intimate scenes with Bebo. So he decided to stay out of it." Apparently, the actor was also busy with the post-production of Chakravyuh. However, the heroine of the film, Kareena is tired shouldering the responsibility of promoting the film. According to a friend of the actress, she has now taken off to UK to celebrate her birthday - a much deserved vacation after all the 'hard work'. As for Arjun, he plans to return from Istanbul soon. After all, his solo hero project, Sudhir Mishra's Inkaar is also scheduled for a January release.
