2018 – March – Bollywood Blind Item 7
Rajeev Masand’s blind item for this week is a bit funny, at least to us. It seems that actors are ready to travel long distance just to get an award that probably is not a big deal. They like going the distance just to pick up an award. We are sure they don’t even make that effort for other things except attending award shows and picking up useless awards. Unless the award producers are paying their trip, that’s a different story.
This actor has not really happened. He had a good role once and that was it. He was in good company and as soon as he messed up, he became like Zika Virus, as in people in Bollywood were avoiding him. In the blind item below, Rajeev addresses the rumours that this actor was involved with the wife of a star. He said, “allegedly”, which means that he himself doesn’t know! As far as we know, these two were good friends and even his wife was close to her. They enjoyed a particular recreational activity and got most of Bollywood into doing that as well.
Lately, he has been looking better. Either he cleaned up his act or got a good skin and cosmetic doctor. Still, his career is not going anywhere. We find it funny about what happened in Rajeev’s blind item. The dude thinks so much of himself that he wanted to remind the audience of his supposedly great acting. In his 17-years of “acting”, he has had about 32 flops. That’s quite something! Nothing more to say on him, check out the blind item below by Rajeev Masand.
Nothing Unreasonable About It
A reasonably popular actor—whose currency took a nosedive after he allegedly got involved with an A-lister’s missus—was recently invited to attend a film award ceremony in the Middle East. The good-looking star demanded that a showreel of his work be played before he was presented with the award, and reportedly went mental when the video could not be played for technical reasons.
Eye-witnesses say he refused to take responsibility for the fact that it was his team that sent the video in an incompatible format. The organisers claimed they had alerted his team a few days earlier that the file wasn’t playing, but no effort was made to replace it. The star would listen to no excuses. He went on a tireless tirade in full public view, and reduced two interns to tears.
For his own part, he has clarified that he didn’t “push” for his showreel to be played. All winners had been asked to submit a video. He commissioned—“at considerable cost”—a video to be produced. He claims the organisers didn’t ditch the video because it didn’t work, but because other actors hadn’t submitted theirs and they thought it would be “awkward” to play only his. “Not fair,” he insists, admitting that he lost his cool—but for good reason.
