After the grand photocall at the 64th Cannes Film Festival, Madhur Bhandarkar's dream project Heroine ran into trouble. It's apparently back on track with Kareena Kapoor replacing Aishwarya Rai.

'HEROINE is back on track, pre-production starts from today, need your blessings & prayers!!!' Madhur tweeted.

The film is about the life of an over the hill actress called Mahi Khanna and more or less similar to the life of divas such as Marilyn Monroe and Madhubala.

Here's hoping that the filmmaker gets to see the project through this time!
