The first blind item for this week comes from Rajeev Masand. It’s about this top heroine, who’s mission in Bollywood seems to be about pissing off as many important people as possible. If you read gossip news, you will know who I am talking about. If not, check out our OSOP guess below.
The Lady They’re All Talking About
The big news doing the rounds in film circles involves a current A-list leading lady and her latest alleged tantrum. According to the story that filmwaalas are gossiping about, she turned down a major project to be produced by a top studio, then promptly leaked the news to a morning tabloid. When the studio head—arguably Bollywood’s most influential producer—reportedly called her and told her that it was in poor taste to talk about a film that one had decided not to do, the actress is believed to have gone on the defensive, saying she frankly didn’t care for his opinion. She is said to have added that she had made it thus far without any help from him or his studio, and didn’t fear the consequences of his choosing to never work with her again.
Sources close to the actress have denied the story vehemently, insisting that there is a lobby in Bollywood that appears determined to paint her as a brat who has allowed her recent success to go to her head. The truth, they insist, is different. Nobody’s denying that the actress has a tendency to call a spade a spade, but her friends say that she has ‘never been disrespectful’ to people, and rumours of this nature ‘reek of a conspiracy to malign her’.
