Today’s blind item is the latest one by Rajeev Masand, which coincidentally is also one of the latest news in Bollywood. As it is, this piece of news made it to the papers earlier this week. High-profile celebrities were supposedly involved and we have been waiting for names to be released, but nothing happened.
Thankfully, Rajeev Masand has some idea as to who might just be involved. To be honest, we pretty much guessed who might be involved. It’s not the first time this actor has been rumoured to be involved in something like this.
This guy, the culprit, has had his pictures taken with many of the celebrities he might or might not be in contact with. Many people are saying that if the celebrities did take his business, why would they take a picture with him? Well, why the hell not? He owns a DVD store that celebrities have been spotted there many times and have even taken their pictures there. We are sure you will agree the guys in the pics below are doing what the blind item is saying they are doing.
Do you know of any famous actor who will go to a DVD store and buy DVDs? Of course, not. They have people, who do that for them known as assistants. So, obviously when they themselves are going down to the store, something must be up. And who knows the man took these pictures as leverage so that these stars come and bail him out when he needs them to. It’s possible.
This reminds us of a water bottle company in the west, Hollywood. We forgot what it’s called, but it has its own Instagram page with celebrities or reality stars advertising or holding the bottle. The own of this supposedly water bottle company is a mommager, who is the most famous reality TV stars’ matriarch. Surprisingly, none of her kids are seen advertising that bottle on the Instagram page. Do you know why? Because that on that Instagram page, whoever is seen holding that water bottle is an escort that can be hired through that mommager. Can you believe it? It is what it is. They are not advertising water or any other crap, these models are advertising themselves for a price.
Anyways, the pictures of that guy with these celebrities reminded us of that Instagram page. Check out who Rajeev Masand is talking about in his blind item below.
The Fallout of a Drug Bust
The arrest earlier this week of a well-connected suburban ‘fixer’, who was picked up after the cops seized drugs worth lakhs of rupees from his home, has reportedly sent a wave of panic among some film folk. Rumour has it that the police now have in their possession two cellphones belonging to the accused, which could help them identify high-profile clients he has been supplying to. The accused was reportedly under the scanner since his arrest five years ago at a Juhu party where he is believed to have supplied recreational drugs to dozens of film and sports celebrities.
It is well known that the accused and his brother run a popular DVD library in Mumbai, and that many top stars and filmmakers are members of the library, frequently showing up to rent films. A simple Google search will throw up multiple photographs of the accused with leading actors at his library. The cops are now said to be investigating whether the accused might have been supplying more than just DVDs to film personalities.
Sources within Bollywood say the accused lost many of his film world clients after his last arrest, but those he continued to supply are currently sweating in the fear of being identified. A young director with close ties to a top male star is said to have deleted all evidence of any contact with the accused from his phone. An upcoming actor with a producer sibling is also apparently distancing himself from the accused for fear of being linked.
