Blind Item 3 – October 2017
We don’t really know the purpose of the blind item today. It’s from Rajeev Masand and perhaps, he was a tad too busy with MAMI, which is currently happening right now. The blind item talks about this actress, she’s quite known, but so far she hasn’t yet made it. It’s quite strange because she does seem to have everything, including a fresh face. She has been in several films, but those haven’t helped her either.
She got to act as a lead actress in a Mani Ratnam film and even that didn’t help her career much. But if she’s not complaining, who are we to complain about it? Maybe she’s happy and satisfied in life. She does come from a well-off family, so maybe money is not an issue for her. Maybe she has made peace with how things are in Bollywood and has come to terms with it. The last thing people speculated about her was her age, she’s almost 40 and yet doesn’t look it. We used to think she has a small head, like a child. She still does, it’s just that we got used to it by now. Check out the blind item below by Rajeev Masand.
Still Not a Household Name
This beautiful actress with porcelain skin may be destined to remain on the fringes of the A-list, despite having appeared in a bunch of big films that had the potential to send her career skyrocketing. Alas, the films bombed and despite credible performances in most, she was unable to reach the higher rungs of stardom. A shame, because anyone who meets her tends to repeat the same refrain: “Why isn’t she a bigger star?” The short answer to that question just may be: Because she hasn’t stirred public consciousness.
Don’t believe me? Listen on. Not long ago, the actress was at Hauz Khas in the Capital, shopping for a pair of sunglasses. She found a pricey pair at one of the fancier stores, and after paying for them, the shop manager, a genial middle-aged gentleman, asked her to enter her details in their visitor’s book so they could contact her when they had fresh stock of her preferred brand. She declined, but the manager insisted, oblivious of who she was.
The bittersweet reality of the situation wasn’t lost on the actress, but she wasn’t about to fill the visitor’s book anyway. She left the store clutching her new purchase and leaving the poor manager perplexed over her unwillingness to fulfil a simple formality. It was clear to her that A-list stardom was still elusive.
