2018 – March – Blind Item 3
It has been a very interesting week for this senior actor. Not for him, but for us! First, snippets from his unauthorised biography are doing the rounds in the media. The most interesting or rather inhumane part has been shared with the media. It was quite surprising to read it because everyone says that this guy is a nice guy and might just be one of the nicest guys in this industry. Little did we know that he wasn’t such a nice guy to his late wife. You know, this might just be the case with guys who are nice to everyone else but are horrible to their loved ones.
This episode in his life was never spoken about, which is why it made for an interesting read. The actor is super mad and is threatening to sue the author of this biography. Apparently, the unauthorised book has shed some light on how this actor treated his late wife, who was going through cancer at that time. He was in love with an actress that he was working with at the time and neglected his wife. She went to seek treatment on her own and when she was cured from cancer, she thought that he would be happy and would welcome her with open arms. He didn’t even go to the airport to welcome her. They already had a daughter then. It’s no wonder that this guy’s in-laws fought for custody of their granddaughter when the wife passed away. We were wondering why this supposedly nice guy had to fight for custody of his daughter from his in-laws.
Anyways, this blind item is from BollywoodLife and is about the current situation of this guy’s career. These days, he’s only getting the cameras on him when he goes to restaurants or gets out of restaurants. There was that one night when his daughter didn’t want to face the cameras and he forcefully pulled her face so that the cameras can get pictures of them together. It’s almost as if he called the paps there to get shots of him being a great dad. We betchya, that little girl will grow up to resent the cameras!
Check out the blind item below from BL. By the way, we have a feeling that this project will never take off. This production house only used this actress’ death as a reason to stop production, but we don’t see it happening. At least, not until their other big budget film is done shooting and is released in theatres. Ironically, the actress that we referred to above, who the actor was in love with, has been called to replace the actress who passed away suddenly. This decision was just made earlier this week. Read on to find out more.
This senior actor has slashed his fee by half due to lack of work
Bollywood can be fatally alluring. Once you are in it, you don’t feel like being anywhere else. It tempts you, especially when at one point of time, you were the reigning superstar. But times have relegated you to be a jaded one. So what do you do? Well, this senior actor thinks the best way is to slash his price. The actor has been a big name in the industry during his youth.
Even when he was past his prime, he had managed to get everyone’s appreciation by doing some good work. But life hasn’t been too kind to him. He has seen a lot of ups and downs. Now the situation is such that, to resurrect his failing career, he is even ready to quote half the price.
The actor recently had a release which bombed at the box office. The buzz around the film was good, but poor execution ruined its fate. This debacle really hit him hard because he wanted to start his second innings on a successful note. He was infamous for his run-ins with the law and this particular film was supposed to give his career a new lease of life.
But nothing of that sort happened. Producers it seems, are wary of his box office pull now, after the debacle. His wife was known to manage his work. He has also gone to a veteran filmmaker, who is known to make multi-starrer war films, and promised to slash his fees if he is cast in his movies.
Now he has put all his hopes on a film by a popular production house. The film too was in a limbo for a few months, before it got a clearance from this leading producer. An actress’ sudden death had also threatened to slow down the film but it seems all that has been sorted out.
