The last blind item for this month is the latest one released by Rajeev Masand. We must add though that Rajeev’s blinds are getting boring. Most likely he is finding himself in a compromised position to post more spicy blind items. Ironically, it’s the problem when you know and are close to too many people in the industry. Nevertheless, this blind is normal new story. See if you can guess who Rajeev is referring to.
Talk Show Tango
Film industry folk will likely attribute this development to the fact that she’s had four major flops in a row (thus putting a question mark over her current box-office clout), but the truth is that this prominent actress had more-or-less made up her mind—even before her last release—to say ‘yes’ to a television offer she’d been considering for some months now.
No, she won’t show up in a Balaji soap (been there, done that!). She has not agreed to judge a music or dance reality show either. Well-placed sources reveal that this powerhouse performer may host an Oprah-style talk show on the small screen soon. Interestingly, these won’t be lighthearted chats with fellow celebrities, but insightful conversations around topical subjects. Before you can say ‘Satyamev Jayate’, however, I should add that comparisons with Aamir Khan’s popular programme on social themes have already been dismissed by my sources, who insist that the actress’ gab-fest will rely on “her warmth and ability to get people to open up to her”. Details are sketchy at this point, but the channel reportedly zeroed in on the actress in question because she’s ‘educated and articulate’ and also because she is ‘comfortably bilingual’.
