Kareena Kapoor, who had earlier demanded a whooping 8 crore for Madhur Bhandarkar's ambitious project Heroine has after much discussion agreed upon to reduce her signing amount, and instead share the profits of the film Heroine with UTV, director Madhur Bhandarkar and male lead actor Arjun Rampal.
Heroine, based on the life of late Hollywood actress Marilyn Monroe earlier had Aishwarya Rai essay the lead role. However, after Aishwarya walked away from the project citing pregnancy, Kareena came to the rescue, but at a cost of Rs. 8 crore!
Kareena Kapoor will now be part of the profit sharing as the producers have reportedly worked out her fees in a way that it totals up to Rs. 8 crore. While actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and Imran Khan regularly work in films where they share profits, it is the first time that an actress will be setting a trend.
