2018 – December – Blind Item
The other blind item for today comes from PinkVilla and is about this actor and something silly that he did. Now, this situation does not really deserve a blind item because it’s more like an issue for him, something that he needs to fix. He probably got upset that these people got mad at him and warned him against doing such a thing again, which is why he let out this blind item. Otherwise, actors should know what they are doing. If they are endorsing a particular brand, they should stick by it.
Most of the time, you can see they don’t. Like, they advertise a particular phone brand but use another. Or they are the face of this car brand but drive another. There should something in their contract that prevents them from doing that. You should sell what you believe in, not sell anything just because they are giving you tons of money to do so. The brands should be stricter because they do give these stars a lot of money to promote their products.
If you watch TV these days, Indian television, every kind of star advertises something. From lorries to toilet cleaning substance to insurance, all stars grab whatever come their way. They no longer care, they are all SRK these days. Shah Rukh Khan was the one, who would advertise just about anything as long as you can afford him. They even made fun of his marketing ways when he promoted ‘Ra.One’ because he was just everywhere.
Check out the blind item below to see who this “young” star is. By the way, was this 2018 film of his, his best performance so far?
Beverage brand upset with a star for flaunting rival brand’s merchandise
A beverage brand a star endorses is rather upset with him for flaunting the merchandise of a rival brand.
This young star is charming, talented and has delivered his career best performance in a film this year. Companies line up to sign this handsome actor as the face of their brand. However, a beverage brand he endorses is rather upset with this actor for flaunting the merchandise of a rival brand. The actor was caught sporting a rival brand’s clothing. Since he is also a style icon and makes a statement with his fashion choices, the brand is not happy about it.
The brand in question has expressed their displeasure to the actor’s team. They have informed his team that they may re-think their decision before going ahead with renewing the contract with the actor if he is spotted in public again wearing any merchandise of the rival beverage brand.
