Today’s blind item is the latest blind item by Rajeev Masand. It’s nothing scandalous, which is not rare anymore when it comes to Mr. Masand’s blind item. It’s about a movie that just released last Friday and today, Box Office India has declared the film a flop. But this blind item is not about that, it’s supposedly about a guest appearance that this senior actor was supposed to do. Unfortunately, that guest appearance didn’t happen. Not that it would make any difference to the box office earnings, this movie was not going to work anyways. Just check out the blind item below to see who Rajeev is talking about.
The Cameo Switch
For their new film, an actor-producer and his director reached out to a big-name senior actor to make a single scene cameo as the villain. They thought it would be a terrific idea to have the star appear in their film months before the actor would be on the screen playing the star in a story about his life.
The star was willing; it was only a day’s work. But the music baron producer of his next film decided to play spoilsport, forbidding the star from shooting the cameo, insisting that he was contracted to make his first appearance on screen after a prolonged hiatus in the movie he was producing.
The star apologised to the actor and asked to be let off. Disheartened, the actor and his director roped in an alternative who happily agreed and did the job without giving them any trouble.
