Today’s blind comes from Rajeev Masand. It’s a bit confusing the blind and as of now, we have no one that we can directly pinpoint to and say that they are our guesses. Come to think of it, even if we can’t guess right, the blind item is not that spicy as things have been a little boring from Rajeev’s side lately. Maybe he doesn’t want to make anyone angry or he’s scared of the repercussions, but his blind items are mostly safe. Check this one out.
Just Not Discreet Enough
There’s a lot of gossip doing the rounds about this actress whose star is currently on the rise. Despite having delivered a credible performance in her debut film a few years ago, industrywaalas mostly dismissed her saying she was too ‘indie’ to make it in popular Bollywood films… or that she just didn’t ‘look’ like a star. But to give credit where it’s due, she’s risen fast because of her undeniable talent, and because she’s happy to play by the rules. She’s at all the major film parties, she walks every important red carpet, she’s approachable on social media, and she’s friends with those who matter.
It is, in fact, her ‘friendship’ with an influential film mogul that’s got tongues wagging these days. She’d acted in a movie a few years ago that happened to be bankrolled by the Hot Shot Producer, but their ‘rapport’ didn’t develop until more recently when she became a permanent fixture at every party and get-together that the famously sociable producer hosted. Photographs of them letting their hair down—with other friends, of course—are splashed all over Instagram, and recently the producer showed up on holiday where the actress was shooting an outdoor schedule of her latest film. Bollywood insiders have spotted a trend here, pointing to the fact that the producer cleverly avoids holidays for couples or romantic- getaways-for-two, choosing instead to cart along a whole bunch of friends— even while travelling with or visiting the latest girlfriend.
Meanwhile, these rumours have left some to ponder the status of the actress’ relationship with her married actor-producer boyfriend. The couple have kept their relationship on the down-low for the most part, but word has still managed to get out that the cucumber cool actor- filmmaker and the actress are more than just ‘good friends’.
