While Madhur Bhandarkar’s film, Heroine, which gave an insight into the inner workings of Bollywood, didn’t work at the Box Office, it is considered one of Kareena Kapoor Khan’s best performances till date.

Now, in an interview with Times of India, Bhandarkar has said: “After Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely demise, people on social media are telling me whatever I had shown in the movie Heroine is true. I have shown in the film what actors go through, how they fight their own battles, the PR things and all.”

He also stated that he faced flak from the film industry for his film. “When I made the movie, people in the film fraternity got very upset with me. According to them, I had taken a lot of things from real life. But the same people appreciated me and my work when I made it on other fields. But I had to be true to my craft. What I showed in Heroine is 95 percent true. I am an honest filmmaker and I stand by the kind of work that I have done in my career. I don’t belong to any lobby or camp,” he said.
