Priyanka Chopra admits Madhur Bhandarkar offered his most ambitious project 'Heroine' to her, but she couldn't accept it due to its streak of similarity with 'Fashion'. However, she is sure Kareena Kapoor will do full justice to the role.

'Madhur and I did talk about 'Heroine'. For me, however, it would have been like a Bollywood version of 'Fashion'. Kareena is the perfect choice. She's such a brilliant actor,' Priyanka told ETC's 'Bollywood Business' host and trade analyst Komal Nahta on his show.

'As a filmmaker, Madhur brings out the best in any actor, and Kareena's such a superior one,' she added on the episode to be aired Wednesday.

Both the actresses shared the screen in hit movie 'Aitraaz'.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was the original choice for 'Heroine', which narrates the journey of a once successful film actress whose career is on the decline.

Bhandarkar had begun shooting with Ash, but the project was put on hold when the actress' pregnancy was announced. Later, several rumours about the replacement made their way. However, Kareena was zeroed in on as the final choice.

The 'Heroine' team is already shooting.

As for Priyanka, she is busy promoting her upcoming film 'Don 2: The King Is Back', in which she plays Roma or 'Jungle billi'. The film releases Friday.

    Does it really matter which actresses were offered this role??? In the end, Kareena got it and that is what matters. If Madhur Bhandarkar offered this role to Aish OMG what was this guy thinking by offering her this character??
