Rajeev Masand has posted before about the subjects in the blind item below, so we don’t know why he wrote this blind item again about them. It’s almost as if he was asked to do so to take away the limelight from this actor and his rumoured girlfriend. The irony is that there’s an article online in which the actor denied dating the actress in the blind item below and his rumoured girlfriend. In the same article, he mentioned how since his mother passed away, he hasn’t had time to date anyone. We think this is pretty much because he found the mother-figure in his life, who is you-know-who. But to be honest, to watch a parent become sick and slowly die is the hardest thing ever. Maybe that’s why he’s messed up and needed to fill that space, which was left by his mum. In the process, he didn’t realise he was hurting another family the same way his family was also hurt when he was a kid. If you know who he is, you will know what we mean. As for the actress in the blind item below, we know she’s really good friend with his sister. It’s how he recommended her for this film. Check out the blind item from Rajeev Masand below.
Together or Not?
Despite repeated rumours from the set that this pair of young actors had become ‘very close’ during filming, the duo in question has laughed off suggestions that they’re romantically involved. Some gossipmongers even implied that the male actor was responsible for the young lady having bagged the project. But those charges too were dismissed by everyone concerned (including the actress’ mother).
Now it appears that someone may have got a little bit closer to the truth. Some paparazzi who were in the vicinity of the male actor’s home one night claim they saw the actress leaving his apartment building at roughly 2 am. They insist the young lady spotted them too and panicked. But they chose to save her the embarrassment and refrained from taking pictures out of courtesy and respect for her famous parent.
To be fair, none of this is evidence to suggest that there is anything more than what meets the eye. Perhaps, as co- stars and friends, they were playing board games until the wee hours of the morning. Or they were earnestly rehearsing their scenes together.
Or, hey, perhaps they were just spending time together, figuring out a relationship that’s still too new to put a label to just yet. Is that such a crime? Let’s leave them alone folks.
