We have the latest blind item from Rajeev Masand for you today. It seems that this movie production company has been in 3 blind items in less than a week. From sexual harassment cases to running out of money and now, their upcoming productions might be in danger. What’s funny though is how the daddy of this young actor had to call them to make sure that his son’s second chance in Bollywood doesn’t get scrapped or ruined. Check out the blind item below.
Until the Tide Turns
Rumours that this major Bollywood film studio is facing difficult times have been floating around for some time now. But insiders are saying things have progressively gotten worse. At least a bunch of under-production films are on hold because funding has reportedly stopped. These include two films with a star kid each. One is an ambitious project starring a star son whose last film flopped at the box office. The other is a two-hero film starring a promising star-son and an art-house favourite.
According to the grapevine, the second project is near completion, but the studio is not coughing up the finance required to wrap up production. So the star-kid’s mom has stepped in and may be completing the project with money that she can independently raise.
The other project will be completed. The star-kid’s father is believed to have made a call to the studio owner, whom he has known for years, and demanded that his son’s film be salvaged. He has been assured that the film will be revived as soon as the studio is able to sort out its financial woes, but for the moment he’s been asked to remain patient and bear with them while they tide over their hard times.
