Yes, after Deepika Padukone, it is Kareena Kapoor who has gone on to take potshots at fellow actress Katrina Kaif and her foreign origin. But before you jump to conclusions, you should know that the digs are part of Bebo's script in Heroine.
According to Zee News, Kareena takes jibes at another actress with remarkable similarities to Katrina in one of the scenes from the film. Apparently, while interacting with a journalist in the scene, the 'Heroine' made fun of the actress, claiming that the latter got successful only because her boyfriend (Salman Khan) was a big star.
Not just this, Bebo even remarks on how the actress' passport should be checked to identify her real name, age and country of origin. Interestingly, rumour has it that even the lady playing the 'foreign' actress is supposed to resemble Katrina.
Kareena was reportedly reluctant to do this scene (possibly for its glaring insinuations), but was convinced by director Madhur Bhandarkar who reasoned that several aspiring actresses did come to India to try their luck in films.
Katrina's passport had become a much-talked about issue when Deepika Padukone had quipped about it on Koffee With Karan. Sonam Kapoor, too had taken digs at Katrina's dressing sense at the Cannes film festival.
Is Katrina making Bollywood heroines insecure with her growing fanbase and critical acclaim? The price of popularity, we guess!
