Blind Item – December 2018 – Bollywood
You know, this actor is everywhere these days at every famous or relevant social event related to Bollywood. That’s not the surprising part, what is surprising is the number of pictures he keeps on taking with this actress, the same actress that he spread a rumour about. If you remember, some months back he spread a rumour that Kebab Jo was going to take him opposite this actress in one of his home productions. That was a rumour, but it didn’t stop these two from being pictured together many times. It is like almost every month or every event that he goes to, they get pictured together.
It just crossed our mind earlier this week that if this actress was not married, Kebab Jo would have linked these two together. You know how much he loves his dharma match-making. We are sure he would have done the same thing. Either these two are at the same events many times or he genuinely likes her and is a big fan. That said, glad to see she is responding well to being clicked with actors from the younger lot. She knows that these are the guys that she might just get to act with; the ones that are not related to her and have not called her “didi” while growing up. The only way for her to stay relevant in Bollywood is to keep up with the younger lot.
It seems the industry is really taken aback by this young actor because so far the blind items on him have been about his behaviour alone. He has not been linked or talked about for his films, it has been more about what he has been doing since he hit the 100-crore club with his film. Well, he has really been liking the attention and taking full advantage of it.

Rookie to the Rescue
Make hay while the sun shines; mice play when the cat is away. Both proverbs seem to apply in the case of this young up-and-comer who appears to know exactly how to make the most of a situation. Talent managers in Bollywood are all talking about this actor who has become the go-to guy for awards functions, branded events and magazine covers—but only if their original choice proves unavailable.
In the last few months, this actor has stepped in to add a dash of glamour to brand launch events and even to receive awards when contacted at the eleventh hour after bigger stars have pulled out, leaving the organisers desperate. He doesn’t have an ego about being the afterthought so long as the organisers can shell out substantially more than he is usually paid, given that he’s bailing them out of a tight spot.
Recently, he made at least two overseas trips, one to attend an event, and the other to participate in a brand shoot after the stars attached to each respective commitment dropped out citing emergencies. As a result he’s had opportunities to ‘hang’ with A-list leading ladies and top-tier filmmakers, and he makes sure he’s got an Instagram post to show for every fancy stop he makes.
