Blind Item – 2018 – Bollywood – February

The blind item below is about a TV show that has been recently released as a web series. It is produced by a famous TV producer, who used and still does produce films from time to time. She has admitted that she lost way too much money producing films, which is why she decided to venture into web series. Many film companies are also doing this now because making films has proved to be too expensive for them.

This blind item is by Rajeev Masand and it’s about this web series and the behind the scenes drama that happened before the show was released. The show itself looks interesting and mostly that’s because of the capable actors in it. Read on below to find out more.

Creative Differences

A well-known indie filmmaker who’s delivered a steady stream of ‘small’ films over the years was signed on to direct an ambitious web series for a top producer’s new online platform. It was an association that would benefit both parties. For the infamously controlling producer, working with a fiercely independent director would no doubt boost her street cred; for the filmmaker, it was just the kind of A-list ‘studio project’ that would look good on his CV.

Alas, it wasn’t meant to be. After considerable work on the project, which was originally conceptualised by the producer herself, the director reportedly ditched the gig citing “creative differences”. It put a lot of people in a difficult spot—including the star of the series, a promising indie actress who’d taken the job only to work with the director. But much of the shoot was already underway, and the producer quickly recruited a new director to keep the show running. For a while it seemed like things were okay.

Now with the show having recently launched and making quite a splash (the influential producer knows a thing or two about drumming up buzz), the estranged director has been telling anyone who’s willing to listen that what you see is his work, sadly uncredited. He’s been claiming everything people are praising about the show is his work; what’s ‘meh’ is the mess that was made after his departure. Word seems to have reached the producer, who sniggered at his claims. Sources say the director is especially cheesed off because he wasn’t paid commensurate to the work he’d put in, and was actually threatened by the producer to walk away quietly or be prepared to have ‘the pants sued off him’.

    Liked the web series. Though the difference in first episode directed by Nagesh and rest can be seen. Overall, good concept and a fresh one from usual “sex-fight-forced comedy” formula web series are following nowadays.
    Also, Admin, can you start a section for TV blind items? Just a suggestion

    • Admin says:

      We don’t know anything about TV, so it’s not fair to be talking about. We have had requests before, but Indian TV is still not our forte. There must be other sites available that focus on TV, right?

      • Shivanisd says:

        There are, but they don’t reveal the names. Nor do they have a lively comment section like you have. Pls consider it. You dont have to give names us girls and guys will figure it out amongst ourselves 🙂

    WHo is Ekta Kapoor’s lesbo partner?

    • Admin says:

      Tusshar is happy playing daddy for now…He has nothing to worry financially thanks to Ekta and her mum. It’s a good thing they all live in one big bungalow. No idea about Ekta.

      • Devil says:

        Admin ,Tushar is Not good for nothing.he looks after his father’ construction business.

        • Admin says:

          Who said he was good for nothing? There’s nothing wrong in happily playing daddy. He has worked for a long time and it’s sweet that he wanted to have a kid. He truly is enjoying that.

          • Devil says:

            Oh Admin, you said “He has nothing to worry financially thanks to Ekta and her mum. I thought you are being sarcastic:
