2018 – May – Bollywood Blind Item 4
The battle that has been going on with this production house and this actor seems to be going for ages. Their movie has been ready and is up for release, but according to the producers, the actor has not yet let them see the film or the trailer of the film. The producers went to court to stop the actor from promoting the film, but he still did it anyway on his Twitter. It sounds like this is a small thing that got bigger because the actor was not willing to listen anymore. It’s like he want people to see this film and due to financial problems, the producers can’t release it yet.
The producers did put a lot of money in this project, so it’s understandable that they want to prepare well for this project before releasing it. They said that they had plans to promote it well. As of now, no promotions have been done and the movie is supposed to be released at the end of this month itself. By the looks of it, we can’t say for sure whether it will work. It looks like a heavy film and this actor has gained this whole “I am a freaking good actor” air about him. He thinks so much of his work now, he has been for the past 5 years.
Check out this blind item from BOI.
This film has seen substantially more action and conflict off-screen than any script writer could possibly have thought up for its screenplay. Finally, it has a new release date and some semblance of clarity on what belongs to whom and what the parties’ obligations are – albeit under court orders.
However, not much seems to be happening with actually promoting the film and it is not as if the release date is very far off either. Which makes us wonder whether there still remains bad blood and unresolved issues between the parties, or is it that there is an inability or unwillingness to spend on the film’s promotions?
Or, maybe the people involved think that all the media attention that their dispute attracted is publicity enough?!
Film: Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran
