April 2018 – Bollywood Blind Item 6
Today’s first blind item comes from Mumbai Mirror and it’s about this boy and his impending film career. This boy is going to be launched by the richest producer in Bollywood. But now, the same producer is busy with his golden goose, who has just delivered a big hit. It’s hard to see how he will pull away from his current cash cow to get involved in this boy’s career. See, he already signed his golden goose for another movie from his successful franchise. If you notice there’s a current trend going on with producers. They are getting more interested in launching new kids on the block.
The reason might be because the film’s budget will be low and it’s also because the new kids don’t charge much. These producers are also tired of chasing after superstars, who charge a bomb. They have to wait for ages before they can get a particular superstar to act in their film. So now, they have figured out how they can make small films with these newcomers and rake in the moolah. It’s like a win-win situation. So let’s say if the kid becomes an instant hit, it’s the same producer who will further benefit. Like this very same producer, who is still banking on the young actor because he’s good at action films and because he is also bringing in the cash.
As for the blind item‘s young kid on the block, this dude has become more famous for having a socialite girlfriend than anything else. There was a blind item last year that said this boy enjoys a lavish lifestyle due to his girlfriend. Good for him! He’s currently on vacation with her and their friends somewhere far from India. It’s nice that his parents have given him so much freedom to do what he wants. His dad had to wait for more than four years before his parents approved of his girlfriend. He had to wait for their approval and then only, they got married. We are seeing a lot of these trends nowadays. Actors, who have struggled for years to make a name for themselves, and their kids who get an easy entry into the Hindi film industry.
Enough said, check out the blind item below from Mumbai Mirror.
IT’S been over a year since an A-list production house announced the debut of this handsome young man. But the tall lad is still waiting for the shooting to begin. There has been no progress on his film’s script, nor has a director or a female lead’s name been finalised. In fact, a more formal announcement was expected to happen in December last year, but he is still waiting. The good thing is the young man is still fresh out of acting school, and is still very young, and can afford to wait. Not endlessly, though.
Young Man: Ahaan Shetty
Production House: Sajid Nadiadwala
