The first blind item for the month of May comes from Rajeev Masand. It’s about this actress, who lost oodles of weight and still has to wait to get sign for amazing projects. Perhaps, she thought that her career will take off like Parineeti Chopra’s career took off after she made her debut in ‘Ladies vs Ricky Bahl’. But the thing with Pari was that when she made her debut, she was unique because she’s from a generation of actresses, who are thin and want to be all pretty on the big screen. She was different, which worked greatly in her favour. Maybe Pari thought that if she lost weight, she will get even more films, but unfortunately that didn’t happen. The same thing is with this actress in the blind item below. As much as she was amazing in her first film, she was not seen on the big screen after that. She lost a lot of weight and maybe she too thought this will bring more filmmakers to her. But, that’s not the case at all. If all things go fine, she might be seen later on the big screen. We heard how she listens to her mentor, Aditya Chopra, and takes his advice very seriously. Hopefully, things will look up for her soon. Check out the blind item below from Rajeev Masand.
Flip-Flop Over Love Scenes
This young actress, who made a big impression in her debut film, appears to be going through an unlucky streak. Her intended follow-up project ran into rough waters after the film’s director and producer fell out over creative disagreements and the film was subsequently shelved.
And now news is coming in that she has lost another film. The film’s makers are saying she developed cold feet over a few intimate scenes in the script, despite being fully aware of the story from day one. The filmmakers insist they’re making a film about modern urban relationships, and that the actress became uncomfortable about love scenes at the eleventh hour. She is believed to have involved her managers and suggested that the scenes were never mentioned in her contract.
The filmmakers say they didn’t want any unpleasantness and certainly did not want to push the actress if she was uncomfortable. Furthermore, they’re saying they don’t want their film to be perceived as sleazy. They insist the scenes are “very aesthetically treated” and “not at all explicit”, and they only exist in the script to convey a “normal relationship” between two young people attracted to each other.
The actress in question has been promptly replaced by a smoldering art- house favourite, who “immediately got what the film and the relationship was about”. Not that the other actress is crying about having lost the project. She’s currently shooting a movie opposite one of Bollywood’s most bankable A-listers. All’s well that ends well, then?
