Blind Item – 2018 – Bollywood – December
The blind item below is not really a blind item if you have been reading the news lately. But before that, before this incident happened, there were numerous blind items and news reports about this female producer and her production company. See, there are about three active producers in this company but only she is being highlighted, which is mainly because she choose to be the face of the company. Promote the company like a female-headed company breaking barriers and getting awards like no other. So, the person who went down ended up being her. The other partners are also accused in this case, but she is being singled out mostly because it was her responsibility as well.
The problem with them is that they thought they could start over doing the same thing. As reported with the earlier blind items about her situation, she definitely did not know how to manage her business. She thought getting big stars in her films will make her rich and famous, but that didn’t happen. Sure, she got famous and her films were awarded and praised, but she didn’t get to make any profit because most of her films’ profits went to the leading star’s pockets. Imagine having your film cross 100 crore and you couldn’t even pay your staff and the on set people.
On top of that, she went on to sign more films with more famous actors. Three of her productions had to be saved by other producers. Two of her productions landed her in court. Now when you read about all that, it seemed a good thing that the beefcake actor and director each fought for their films respectively. The lady thought she would be able to fix all of her monetary issues and release these films, but that never happened.
In August, she launched a new company in the hope of making hit films again. It seemed she was trying to fix things, but instead of getting herself out of that hole she dug up, she went further back in. Well, hopefully something comes out of it. It is never a nice situation to be in to owe a lot of people a lot of money. That is stress you never want and it’s also why they say, “don’t bite off more than you can chew”. Sometimes you can keep trying and it works out for you, but at other times you are just making it harder for you to get back on track.
Check out the blind item below from PinkVilla.
This female producer is in jail because of her recent partner?
This female producer, who has gotten into trouble with the law, has gotten a lot of friends turned enemies around her. There have been several cases filed against her by various production houses with almost all the government agencies. But, the producer, who is now behind bars, took the help of her partner who promised to shield her from all the legal troubles. Alas, the two recently had a fallout and the next thing we see, she is now in trouble with the law.
Apparently, when the female producer earned profits, she did not share it with her partners. Instead, when quizzed about the accounts in the case of a partnership, she would file cases against them.
However, this came to bite the producer back and the final result is that she is now in jail!
Female Producer: Prerna Arora
A CEO of a corporate producing house laments the star mafia in Bollywood, “A handful of A-list actors are controlling every aspect of filmmaking, from its leading lady to its music and even the final editing. As far as their fee is concerned, they walk away with the satellite/television rights leaving the producers with only the profit margin from theatrical release. Yash Raj Films refused to work within the above pay scheme. But now, Salman Khan got satellite/television rights from Yash Raj before he agreed to finally do films for them.”
