2018 – December – Bollywood Blind Item 4
Today’s blind item comes from Rajeev Masand. It was posted yesterday and we apologise for sharing it this late. Compared to his other blind items, it is pretty different and something new, like the story of this movie. Frankly, though, he kind of killed the buzz because then while watching the film, that surprise element will not happen.
It is nice to be surprised while watching a film. You don’t know what is going to happen and you are in for a surprise. But all that will depend on how much they reveal in the trailer itself. How are they going to treat this subject in the trailer? That would be interesting to watch. Now the title makes sense, it makes super sense.
The film will be out in February, so the trailer will probably be in January next year. Let’s wait and see. Also, they were smart to put all these relevant actors in this film. This way, it won’t sink that fast and go unnoticed. Speaking of which, didn’t Kalki Koelchin do something of a similar theme? Not a full-on exact theme, but slightly similar in that film with Sayani Gupta?
Lesbian Themes Reach Bollywood
After making room for the occasional gay character and a handful of sensitively handled gay relationships, Bollywood will turn its gaze onto women who love women. A new Hindi film coming out (pun unintended) early next year, titled after an evergreen ballad of the 90s, will tell the story of a young girl from a traditional Punjabi family who discovers that she has feelings for another girl. It is, reportedly, as much about her parents and fiancé coming to terms with this information as it is about her becoming comfortable with her truth.
The protagonist is played by a glamorous ‘fashionista’ star who prides herself on bucking trends when it comes to picking roles. Insiders say the subject has been treated with great sensitivity. Positioned as an ‘emotional family drama’, the movie stars A-listers in key roles.
