Their film Heroine releases on Friday, September 21, and Madhur wanted to make sure he took the God's blessings.
"I am a Ganapati bappa bhakt and I insisted that Kareena come with me this time," said the director.
"We are happy that the response of those who have watched Heroine at the trials has been good. They are appreciating Kareena's work and the movie," he added.
The film chronicles the life of an actress at the top of her game who begins the slow descent into obscurity, played by Kareena. Arjun Rampal and Randeep Hooda co-star in the film.
We hope that the film will not need divine blessings to stay in theatres though.
