This week’s blind item, courtesy of Rajeev Masand, is interesting but a bit too hard to solve. I don’t really know for sure, but I have my choices. Let’s see if any of you can guess who these characters are below. It could be Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha, but even these two don’t really fit the story below.
A young male star who got his heart broken recently, when his actress girlfriend unceremoniously dumped him, has revealed to his friends the story behind the break-up. The actor says their relationship was always closely monitored by the actress’ controlling father, who seldom permitted her to go on dates with him. Instead, he reveals he was encouraged to visit the actress at her home, where they barely enjoyed any privacy, what with her parents literally occupying the next room.
The actor has said his ex’s family is a strange lot who didn’t employ domestic help because they were paranoid that staff would leak stories to the press. As a result, he’s said he often volunteered to wash his dishes after a meal at his ex’s home because he didn’t want to burden her parents with that task.
Things began to go downhill when the actress’ father started insisting that they ought to seriously think about getting married, when he learnt that the couple had become ‘intimate’ recently, despite the tight leash he kept his daughter on. The actor has said it was awkward and embarrassing having to discuss such ‘private matters’ with her father. He also adds that he didn’t resist the marriage suggestion, but balked when her father said he should buy a new home in the suburbs, as his daughter would not be able to ‘adjust’ with his parents, with whom he lived in their sprawling North Mumbai apartment.
When he said his parents would welcome her warmly into their home, her father allegedly called off their relationship on her behalf, and made sure she didn’t see him anymore. Despite several attempts to contact her, he says he was unable to make her see reason. The star says he’s hurt they broke up, but also relieved he doesn’t have to see her crazy father.
