2018 – October – Blind Item 2
There are three blind items below. Like the previous blind items shared from Arre, we don’t know how true these are but from what we have read, it does seem close to the stories floating around Bollywood. Like the first blind item is about this director. He has already been outed as a rapist and he has also denied it by saying everyone knows he respects women. Then, he went on to blab in a language that only he understands. Funny thing is that Sajid Khan used to make fun of this director’s English at award shows and now look at the irony, both have been outed on the same day. Hopefully, they will be placed right next to each other in hell.
Anyways, so this director has once said, like if it was nothing, that he needs to fall in love with his heroine before being able to direct her. He said that on Simi Garewal’s show where he was accompanied by the newcomer that he was introducing at that time. He spoke about this girl to Simi like if she was an object for him and she was sitting right next to him. The weirdest thing is, this director makes special appearances in all of his films. Like just in one shot where he will show his creepy face. You know who does that and who also has to be in love with his actresses before directing them? Alfred Hitchcock! We were big fans of Hitchcock’s books and films until that movie came out about him and a TV movie also came out about how much of a creep he was. The director in the blind item below thinks he is such an amazing director, like the best. Good thing, his big budget films have flopped so bad that he has stopped directing. Actually, to be fair, he has been chasing Bollywood‘s Godfather for a while now and even Bhai doesn’t have such a big heart to do this director’s film. Well, after all, the last one they were in together was such a huge bomb!
As for this senior actor in the blind item below, he is known for that. Not the first time. If you notice the pattern of actors, who are popular and have been around for a long time, you will see that they are better actors offscreen. They are good at manipulating the audience, just like a magician. Take this senior actor, for example. He pretends to be all humble and down to earth when in reality, he is just the same megalomaniac that only wants people talk about him and praise him. That’s the reason he gave that answer at his press conference, he was pissed that Tanushree Dutta took away the chance for people to praise him for his role in that film. Instead of talking about the role that he has worked so hard for and was even hospitalised because of that, they chose to ask him about something else. The audience made him famous and gave him that power. They also took it from him when he started acting all high and mighty. That’s when he learnt: how he should behave in public! All that talk about protect daughters, loving daughters when he himself got no respect for other women other than his daughter! By the way, old man. Stop saying your daughter is the best actress in the family. The best actress has and always will be your wife, period! The only bad films she did was the ones you asked her to sign.
Check out the last of the blind items below from Arre.
And like this, everyone knows the “open secret” of the exploits of the famous ’90s director whose stories are also so old and well-known that they might as well be written in stone. Over the years, the industry has rewarded him with awards and lauded him for his vision, which included a “creative process” that occured in his upscale bathroom: As he sat naked in his bathtub with his hands folded, the female lead of his film was required to remove all her clothes and present her naked body in front of the director. His eyes would sincerely make note of every body part and channelise it to invoke creativity. This blatant misuse of power would repeat film after film and on some cases, would involve a fair bit of “sacrificing” on the actress’s part. All done in the comfortable confines of a bathtub, of course.
Likewise, everyone knows of the reputed senior actor – now a champion for women – methodically grazing the breasts and butts of every young actress. His impossibly long career is replete with him preying on young actresses and getting them to sleep with him. And the ones who protested, had their drinks spiked. He’d force himself on them and replace them from his film anyway. But, I suppose the icing on the cake is the modus operandi of the yesteryear actor – with origins in Bollywood’s filmi family – who’d drunkenly insist that his wife watch him force himself on screaming female leads.
