This week’s Blind Item, courtesy of Rajeev Masand from Open Magazine, is too easy. Well for starters, this item has already been published in the news last week and if you read Bollywood you would pretty much know the answer to this blind item. Still, I will only reveal our guesses after the original blind by Rajeev Masand. Read on.
Bollywood Blind Item
Smitten, Again and Again
His movies reveal his soft, sensitive side, and if rumours are to be believed, he’s as much a romantic himself as the characters he writes. This married A-list filmmaker is the subject of much gossip in Bollywood currently for his alleged relationship with an actress from across the border, who’s famously trying her luck in Hindi movies.
There were murmurs earlier too that he might have been involved with a pretty newcomer he introduced in his last film, but those stories quickly died a natural death when his leading man hooked up with the actress.
News of his latest link-up, however, seems to be the only thing filmwallas are talking about these days. And it turns out that the gentleman in question really doesn’t care. Apparently, he’s smitten, and nothing else matters.
Married A-list Filmmaker:Imtiaz Ali. He makes great movies, romantic ones that girls love.
So far, I have liked all Imtiaz Ali’s films like ‘Love Aaj Kal’, ‘Jab We Met’, and even the flop ‘Socha Na Tha’. No, I didn’t like ‘Rockstar’ much as I have seen the film and I think the response was overrated. ‘Guzaarish’ was a great acting film, yet no one praised it as much as they praised ‘Rockstar’ – all because ‘Rockstar’ was a hit! If it wasn’t, then expect everyone to make fun of it at award shows.
Last week, he has announced that he is divorcing from his wife of 11 or 14 years. It is rumoured that he is currently crazy in love with this Pakistani actress, but Imtiaz Ali’s father denies it.
Actress from Across the Border: Iman Ali. Iman Ali was last seen in ‘Bol’, had her and Atif Aslam in it.
Leading Man: Ranbir Kapoor. This man can’t control himself! I’m sure Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone and many more girls will agree. Only his mother seems to find him perfect! Perfect, my arse!
Pretty Newcomer: Nargis Fakhri. Duck lips! (Sorry, got nothing else!)
