I'm not slim, every picture is 'Photoshopped': Kareena Kapoor

New Delhi: Kareena Kapoor was at her candid best during her interaction with the media at the United Arab Emirates for the promotion of her upcoming film 'Heroine'. She said she's definitely not as slim as she appears in some of the still photos from the film's posters and publicity material and mostly every picture is improved upon with the help of the Photoshop software.

The 'Emirates 24/7' publication reported Kareena's comments during the Dubai leg of the promotion for 'Heroine' on how using Photoshop has become commonplace in the industry to improve on the images sent out for publicity.

"I don't think I'm so slim. I'd definitely go back to the hotel and check out if it's really my body," the publication quoted Kareena as saying when asked about her hourglass figure in the posters of 'Halkat Jawani' from 'Heroine'.

Kareena said she's definitely not as slim as she appears in some of the still photos from the film 'Heroine'.

"That picture does look Photoshopped. Every picture for every film, every ad, every newsprint, does get Photoshopped. It is a business, photoshop. Everyone is doing it today. In fact, 'Heroine's posters have not been Photoshopped as much as other movie posters. This is the figure that you will see in the song," Kareena told the Emirates 24/7.

Heroine is directed, co-written and co-produced by Madhur Bhandarkar and tells the story of the life of a once-successful film actress, Mahi Arora, whose career is on the decline. It stars Kareena Kapoor in the lead role along with actors Arjun Rampal, Randeep Hooda and Rakesh Bapat. Heroine is scheduled to be released on September 21, 2012.
