2018 – January – Bollywood Blind Item 6

What we have below is Rajeev Masand’s usual weekly blind item. This time, it’s about something that we have all known and heard about for years now. It doesn’t seem a surprise at all about why and how this young guy grabbed this role.

It seems to us that there are three levels of reactions when it comes to extra-marital affairs in Bollywood. The first reaction is shock from the people involved, barring the people having the affair. Then, there’s the angry reaction where the wife and kids leave the house for a couple of weeks or months and the families have to deny everything claiming that the house is haunted and all that crap. They do eventually manage to persuade the wife to come back to the cheating husband and haunted house. Lastly, there’s the acceptance reaction where everyone involved realise that they are better off accepting the situation and let things run its course. By that we meant that the wife has accepted to become a doormat and leave it up to the husband to get over his infatuation. Little does she know that as soon as he’s done with one, he will hop on to the next; like catching a public transport. Speaking of being a doormat, when will Mrs Funnybones write a book about this? She has an out and out experience with this situation.

Anyways, check the blind item below by Rajeev Masand to see what we are talking about. Piggyback riding is what everyone wants to do to this superstar. Poor old man!


Bollywood Blind Item

A Case of Sour Grapes

Whoever said that actresses are the bitchiest lot hasn’t spent much time with male actors. The gossip being circulated by a handful of young B-level male actors concerns the casting of a major film, the latest instalment of a successful thriller franchise. According to these catty young men, the only reason a semi- popular young actor landed a part in the movie is thanks to his sibling’s closeness to the A-lister heading the film, and especially his family.

It’s probably a case of sour grapes for those spreading the story, given that most young actors would’ve given an arm to be cast alongside the superstar in what will likely be another blockbuster.

    Really irrelevant (sorry), but what’s the deal with Ameesha Patel these days? I mean she has almost no career right now and is really irrelevant, then why does her lifestyle (based off of her instagram) seem so lavish? Also, is it true that she and ranbir dated?

  2. Rashmi says:

    That’s what I’ll never understand. why Huma does not use his love affair with Sohail and the closeness to the Salman family for the sake of his career? Why is she instead preoccupied with her brother’s career? Huma is luxurious, she is very talented and beautiful, why does Sohail / Salman not engage in her promotion ???

    • Shivanisd says:

      Then everyone will know they are having an affair. I dont think huma is interested in a career any more. Shes got a flat and bmw from sohail.

    • Pepeas says:

      She’s done a film last year directed by Gurinder Chadda. It wasn’t a huge hit like Bend it Like Beckham, but it was a starring role and she’ll definitely catch the attention of other international casting directors. So she may not get mainstream Bollywood roles anymore but might get other interesting roles. However I wish she’d have stayed independent, or at least found a single man.

      • shivanisd says:

        Viceroy house. It was so boring. She’ll never get international roles. Shes too chubby. U think PC would have been successful in the States if she was overweight like Huma?? But i agree she should have found a single man. I used to like her.

  3. Rad says:

    It might be a case of sour grapes but I believe the blind 100%. If not for Huma and Sohail, Saqib getting a role alongside Salman in a movie like Race 3? That will happen when pigs fly πŸ˜€

    • Shivanisd says:

      Exactly. He’s not star material at all.

      • Chandni says:

        The same can be said for Daisy Shah as well( Im still beyond surprised by the fact that she got a movie with A lister like Jacqueline!) Also Admin, Is Daisy playing Saqib’s love interest in the film? They’ll look like a bhai-behen jodi to me πŸ™ŠπŸ™ŠπŸ™Š

        • Rad says:

          @Chandni – Daisy Shah belongs to Salman camp and he takes care of ppl in his camp. Jacqueline too is in his camp. And I don’t think Jacqueline is an A lister. Good thing about Jacqueline is she gets along with ppl and there is no bad blood between her and anyone. I totally agree reg Daisy and Saqib.

  4. Champak Bhoomia says:

    Ah well, better Saqib than Pulkit. Saqib and Huma are both quite good performers in my opinion, but sadly all their pop’s wealth ain’t enough for them to get to the top in Bollywood.

    • Pepeas says:

      Yes both are talented, especially Huma. I wish talent, and talent alone would suffice these days to be relevant. In bygone days even though star kids came in, many outsiders were given breaks and repeated chances if one or two films failed. But a Nawazuddin or Rajkummar type success story is exceedingly rare today, even more so for women.

    • Shivanisd says:

      Huma, is talented and also beautiful. But her weight was a problem. Doesn’t she understand how Bollywood is?? Why, be so stubborn and stupid. Now shes just the keep if sohail. And instead of stopping her her brother is taking advantage of the situation!! What world are we living in.

      • Rashmi says:

        weight is not an issue for Vidya or Sonakshi, so why the problem for Hum? She is more beautiful than both Sonakshi and Vidya, besides, she lost weight and looks slim. She really likes me, unrealistically feminine and talented. By the way there is such a type of women who do not is suitable leanness. Huma among them

        • shivanisd says:

          Sonakshi is a nepo kid and her career has failed. Vidya is a nepo wife she will get roles even if she gains 200 kgs overnight. Shes already fat btw. Huma doesnt have a producer or actor husband or father. She should have played by the rules. Stupid woman.

        • Shivanisd says:

          Oh please! “Huma was thin in ishqiya and gangs of wasseypur and she looked fab. Just bcuz its pc to praise plump women doesnt, mean huma can gain 20 kgs and still expect to have a career in Bollywood. Dumbo she is.

    • Shivanisd says:

      Saqib is bad looking.

  5. Amanda says:

    Admin, can it be also Bobby deol. If I am not wrong, he got a role in Race 3 because of his brother/family connection to Salman..

    • Admin says:

      First of all, Bobby is not some young actor. Second of all, you clearly have missed all the blind items regarding this whole situation. So, just go right ahead and catch up on all the blind items released in 2017 and little by little, you will come out of that Ghajini shell you are in. Alright?
