It’s a bit strange how Rajeev Masand wrote the below blind item. We know that upon reading it you might think you got the answer. But the real answer is not at all what you are expecting because it’s more of a “out of mind and out of sight” situation. We think our OSOP Guesses are correct on who Rajeev is referring to and we’ll tell you why. First, Rajeev waited for months before posting this blind item. Second, he didn’t elaborate much, so that no one would directly blame him. We don’t think he has ever reported about them before, so perhaps he didn’t want to take a risk. Speaking of risks, this is the second time this month a blind item was posted about them. Still, can’t figure it out? Check it the blind item below, courtesy of Rajeev Masand.
An Odd Kind of Musical Chairs
The relationship status of this extremely high-profile pair of actors has remained the subject of conjecture and gossip for some time now. Are they together, are they not? It’s a fascinating subject, and depending on who you know in Bollywood, you’re likely to listen to differing versions of what may be the truth. Some insist that the pair has cooled off. Others say she’s moved on to greener pastures. Still others insist that the dynamic has changed—it’s he who ‘needs’ her more now.
Whatever be the case, it does appear that their relationship has been going through rocky times. Organisers of a Bollywood awards show reveal that both stars refused to be seated in the audience while the other was also there. The actress in question arrived at the event, immediately headed backstage, and insisted that she wouldn’t take her seat in the front row while he was still in attendance. The male star reportedly had similar tantrums. He is believed to have outright refused to be within walking distance of her.
It was clear that they wanted to avoid any chance of having to come face to face and make polite conversation, and they didn’t want to be in the audience while the other was on stage in order to escape those pesky cameras from being shoved in their face for reactions.
The organisers of the awards show had to go to elaborate lengths to ensure that their appearances on stage were timed in such a manner that the other was not in the audience at the time.
