Since it’s Saturday today, we are sharing something that will make blind item readers very happy. Just remember that this was posted a while back, it’s not a recent article. It’s quite scandalous and might shock you. Some of you might have heard these things before and some of you might just be shocked. It’s written by Simi Chandoke, who works for Zoom, and published by Bombay Times. We used to watch her quite often give explanations on this channel, but as far as we know she has never openly say bad or scandalous things about stars openly. She has been diplomatic, but she still was a gossip queen. Either way, feel free to guess who Simi is talking about. If you know your stars, you will know who she’s talking about.
The naughty crore 'pati' Simi Chandoke
Do celebs have strange sexual fetishes? Last week, my colleague at Zoom asked me pensively,” I wonder what made Tiger Woods do it.” His innocent question brought out other names from the closet. I recalled stories I had heard over the years. Initially I used to get shocked. Like the first time my gay friends told me about this eighties’ superstar who pretended to be a total stud with women. But late in the night, he would allegedly visit the men’s public toilet where gay men would already be waiting in anticipation. His car was often spotted outside the toilet. A famous designer had pretty much a similar story. Perhaps still trying to summon the to face his sexual preferences, he would often ‘use’ the toilet near the Bandra talaab.
This is not just about gay men pretending to be straight. There are weirder tales. Like this Southern star who is worshipped in the south. He would have this particular suite at his favourite hotel. A friend who was training at the hotel told me, “I don’t know what this star does. He walks in at 9pm, requests for six candles and has three eunuchs with him.” Interesting but only the star or the eunuchs would know what they did inside.
A good-looking villain from the black-and-white era loved girls. I remember a film mag’s editor telling me this. Nothing wrong with loving girls. Except that the girls could be no older than thirteen! And we judge poor Tiger Woods! Another yesteryears’ super star would love to burn his beautiful wife’s thighs with cigarettes. The Pali Hill wives were no less. They were notorious for hosting kitty parties where they paid male escorts. While the star husbands played the field, the wives did their bit.
A well-known producer and financier from the nineties always slept with his heroines. So we would call this phenomenon the casting couch. Seems like he took the term couch rather seriously. Someone walked into the room accidentally once and saw him in bed with this dusky actress. What totally stunned him was that this filmmaker had the hero’s mom sitting on the couch and he was making her watch it.
There are non-film celebrities who are as kinky. I remember hearing strange stories about this bunch of famous people from our party circuits. They would all go pub hopping then apparently have group sex.
So what makes celebrities play with fire? I think this is because it is very easy to get men or women. So the regular stuff no matter how attractive the person, fails to excite them. Also being well-known makes the game even riskier in case they are caught. We all know how tempting the forbidden fruit can be. Celebs like to live life over the edge. Like Hugh Grant being caught with a prostitute in a parking lot or a Kate Moss snorting cocaine in a public area and risking her entire career. It is simply very difficult to handle so much fame. This perhaps explains why Tiger Woods did what he did. Why blame the celebs alone? What about the willing opportunists? The attractive gold diggers who are all over the place. Whether it is the polo fields of the South Hamptons or India’s racecourses and political corridors. Even social networking sites. Several people say they are in the entertainment business. Their real job though is to help such women meet rich, bored, old men. Sometimes rising starlets, sometimes falling and fading ones are the most willing victims. They agree to perform at weddings, ‘service’ VIP guests, travel abroad with old but rich men. They fetch crores. Well the dirt just doesn’t stop. This may give us nausea but has certain men salivating. A wife at home, a mistress outside is often not enough for the crore ‘pati’.. Looks like some famous dils are always asking for more.
