2018 – March – Blind Item 2
The blind item below explains why this young actor has been signing up films with this producer. DNA has the inside story on why he keeps working with this producer and this might also explain why another movie was announced before the sequel of this franchise released. It’s almost like biting more than they can chew, but at this point this movie was announced to pay back the debts that this young actor’s dad owed the producer. It’s a long story and it was in the papers, we missed it because back then this senior actor was known to be in debts.
We have to say that it’s a lovely gesture coming from the young son. Yes, he keeps doing the same thing in films but at least he’s not using his skills to make more money to buy fancy cars and houses. As a child, the best gift you can give your parents (aside from respecting them and taking care of them when they grow old) is to best off their debts. Debts are the worst weight a person can carry on his shoulders. We know some kids would say that it’s not their debts, so why should they pay it? Well, you do a good deed and good things will come to you. If good things don’t come to you in your lifetime, the man above has seen your good action and has taken note of it. That’s all that matters.
We remember this interesting story about Osama Bin Laden. You guys remember him? He was once the world’s most wanted man. A letter to his father was discovered at his house, the same house they caught and killed him in. He wrote to his dad (the dad that he does not get along with; the same dad who kicked him out) to pay off his debts, in case he dies and is unable to pay them. He listed the people that he owed money to and he told his father that if the debts are not paid off, he would rot in his grave because God would refuse to see him. Something like that, we don’t recall the incident word for word. But it’s strange, isn’t it? This man was supposedly responsible for the killing of millions of innocent people and all he was concerned about was to clear off his debts!
Back to the blind item, check it out below, courtesy of DNA. This senior actor’s money problems started when he and his wife, actually mostly his wife, produced this big budget film. For the life of us and everyone else who saw this film, we don’t know why she thought it was a good idea to spend their hard-earned money on this film. After the film tanked big time, this senior actor has been finding it difficult to get back on track. He signed random films and did what he could. It’s sad because he lived in a slum before he became famous and his wife made him move to a better house. He’s also a good man, he has a good heart. We know that he quietly helps people and even feeds beggar kids on the street. Maybe it’s why his son is a hero, who has been getting good opportunities.
Hear, Hear: Veteran actor’s son steps in to repay his debts, guess who?
A veteran actor got into monetary trouble with a filmmaker after he failed to return a few crores he had borrowed.
Apparently, he had even mortgaged his Juhu home with the producer-director for the loan. But since he had barely repaid any money, the filmmaker was said to be contemplating legal action. However, he was dissuaded by their common friend, a superstar who assured him that their buddy, who has been going through a bad phase, will pay up if he’s given some more time.
Last heard, the veteran actor’s son has committed to do a couple of films for the filmmaker’s production house to repay his debts and free his house from the mortgage.
Veteran Actor: Jackie Shroff
Filmmaker: Sajid Nadiadwala
Son: Tiger Shroff
Salman Khan is at his charitable best. The latest on the generous superstar is that he is bailing out fellow actor Jackie Shroff, who is currently undergoing a financial crisis. The story goes that Jaggu Dada who is facing a financial crunch had taken a loan of Rs 50 lakh from producer Sajid Nadiadwala. However, Jackie failed to pay back on time.
As a consequence, the loan As a consequence, the loan multiplied to nearly Rs 1 crore on a given rate of interest. When Jackie tried to repay, his cheques bounced and Nadiadwala filed a case against Jackie. Says a source, “Jackie then went to Salman (who is Nadiadwala’s close friend) and explained his position to him. Salman immediately called up Nadiadwala and asked him to end the legal wrangle.
Nadiadwala withdrew the case on Salman’s request. Moreoever, Jackie has also parted with most of his Sony shares. He is a darling and nobody wants to see him in trouble, not even Nadiadwala.”
Salman has also taken up the task of resurrecting Jackie’s career. Our source adds, “Salman has got Jackie a prominent role in his brother Sohail Khan’s film, Kissan and also wants to cast him in Veer. Although Salman is keen that Jackie gets a role in that film, Anil Sharma (director of Veer) wants Mithun Chakraborty.”
While Nadiadwala remained unavailable for comment, Jackie brushed off his financial crunch. He says, “Oh, there is no financial crunch. I still have the Sony shares with me. But yes, I had taken a loan from Sajid. The loan was taken for my home-production Sandhya. Woh kuch distribution ka chakkar tha. Sajid will definitely get his money back when my film Sandhya releases. Meri woh picture (Sandhya) atak gayi hai.”
Jackie adds, “I don’t know if Salman is helping me with my career. But if that is the case, I think that I have a guardian angel around me. I would love to work a lot once again. Think of it, who wouldn’t? Actually, there are quite a few guardian angels around me. I think my goodness is helping me out.”
