The first blind item for today comes from Mumbai Mirror. It’s about this actor, who probably just realised that he will have to be content with playing second fiddle to every big hero or every star in Bollywood unless he gets good scripts where he can play the lead without him looking creepy with a twice or thrice younger female co-star.
He has also been pushing this famous director to make another movie from his famous franchise, the only franchise that has him in the lead. The director is not really into this idea yet, despite assuring the actor that he will be creating something. Fact is, this senior hero doesn’t look young anymore despite being around the same age as the senior superstars in the country. Drugs and alcohol have made him look way older than what he really is.
So what is his next solution? Write a book! Yes, it was already previously reported that he was shopping around his life story to be made into a big international movie and now he wants a book written about his life.
Instead of focusing on his life, he could have toured the country speaking in schools, colleges and universities about the bad experiences he had with drugs. He can be paid doing that, but maybe that doesn’t pay as much as he would like to. He was in an interview last year saying that he’s ready to help the Government of Punjab when it comes to the drugs affecting youngsters there.
Well, who wants to read about his life story when it’s all already out there? And to make it worst, they are already making a film on him so why the need for a book?
Check out the blind item below from Mumbai Mirror.
This senior actor, who cannot be called a leading actor by any stretch of anyone’s imagination, is contemplating writing a book. What’s this, you ask? Anyone who wants to write a book writes a book these days. Correct. But this gent’s memoirs are particularly interesting as his life is even more colourful than technicolour movies he still finds himself in. A leading publishing firm is surprisingly showing interest. But the actor says he’s waiting until he finds a good ghost writer. May we offer our services? We are quite colourful in our prose.
Senior Actor: Sanjay Dutt
