August 2018 – Bollywood Blind Item 4
The other blind item for today comes from Rajeev Masand’s weekly collumn. It’s nothing new, so no need to get your hopes up. Reading his collumn for this week is just mindblowing because we never thought there would come a day when journalists would be writing about the activities of a famous toddler. Amazing work! The only details missing were, “What time did the baby do his potty and who changed his diapers”. This is almost becoming like a Kardashian culture and it’s just ridiculous how much focus the media is paying to this. Like if there is nothing more important to do!
So the blind item below is about something that you all already know about. The irony of this happening is really one in a million and it did happen, even if it took years. So, you all know how this actress only wanted to work with big stars or actors that she considered successful. This type of mindset by the heroines is going to change. But then again, everyone thinks about their image but for this actress, it was more of a “eww” when she was asked if she would work with this actor.
Well, she refused and that role went to another actress. The movie worked wonders for her. Since the actor is really happening now, the actress now wants to work with him. The question that we have is, was she organically chosen for this project or did she ask to be cast? Since it’s her close friend’s project, you can’t really say for sure. Who knows?! It’s amazing how she has managed to create opportunities for herself. It’s like she refuses to fall into the same category that her sister was put in when she got married and had kids. But then again, her sister was ready to drop everything and live her life as a mother. This one is different. Let’s see how this film works out for her. The last time she was cast in a big project, it ended up being postponed and eventually, shelved.
Check out the blind item below from Rajeev Masand.
Changing Her Tune
Fans of this heartthrob male star think it’s particularly hypocritical of this popular leading lady to change her tune and speak in platitudes about the actor now that he’s scaling great heights in Bollywood. After all it’s no secret that she repeatedly turned down movies with him early in his career despite being fully aware of how much he admired her.
The actor in question publicly expressed how he felt about this heroine, whom he’d been watching on screen for years before he became an actor, and on whom he’d been nursing the biggest crush. Crushed is exactly how he felt when she twice said no to big films that they were offered together. And he has revealed since that his unconditional affection for her fizzled out after she pointedly turned down those films because she wasn’t interested in working with him.
Today the tables have turned. He’s one of two most promising young A-listers, and possibly the most bankable male star of his generation. She works infrequently, and tends to gravitate towards films with big box-office potential. They’re starring in a movie together, but not opposite each other.
Recently she was quoted as having said that she’s looking forward to working with him, and his fans have been booing her for her blatant hypocrisy. And as it turns out, his actress girlfriend and the heroine in question haven’t exactly been friends either.
