Blind Item – April – Bollywood – 2018
When Sridevi passed away, it was brought to our attention that it was her husband, who decided how much she would be paid or deserves to be paid. It was because of this that she lost out on many movie opportunities. The reason why we are mentioning this now is because the blind item below is about an actor, who is in the same situation. Is or was, but this is why his career suffered. When he got married, he let his wife take charge of his acting career. She decided which movie he signed and how much he should charge for it. It’s funny because she is not even from the movie industry to know the rates.
Like most new wives, she too thought her husband was a big deal hence quoted producers and directors such a high price that they couldn’t afford to sign him. He was never a big deal. Sure, he was well-loved, but all that was due to a lovable movie character he played. Then, he started doing some really bad films. So bad that they really had to put him away to stop people from going crazy (this is what we tell our old lady why they put him away).
He thought when he would come out, directors would come flocking to his bungalow to sign him up. Sure, some of them did but the high fee turned them away. Last month, there was another blind item that said he was reducing his acting fee to get more roles. This blind item from Mumbai Mirror is no different. Maybe things will get better for him when his rainbowed biopic releases and he will be in demand again, could be.
A well-known movie star isn’t having a great time. Not only has his age caught up with him, his own personal crisis has also cost him his best years. He is now back in action and making sincere attempts at making films, but there seem to be few takers. All the meetings he has had ever since he came out of his exile have been in vain, thanks to his high salary. But now, the actor has given himself a pay cut, and is ready for round two of talks.
