Blind Item โ€“ January 2018 6

The first blind item for today comes from Rajeev Masand. It is concerning a delicate and sensitive topic, so if you think that we got our OSOP Guesses wrong, feel free to point us in the right direction. A part of the blind item reminds us of this news item we were reading just this morning about Hollywood’s ultimate pervert and creep, Harvey Weinstein.

As for the blind item below, we have heard similar stories before. As for him, it was said that he swings the other way, as opposed to what the blind item is saying. Maybe he swings both ways like his very good friend, who only makes out with him when he’s drunk in public.

As for her, the less said the better. They all abuse their power, but who is she to tell young ladies that they need to go under the knife. It’s ironic that in that movie company, everyone thinks that they should give out plastic surgery advices to young girls. It’s like they have a membership or get a commission every time they send someone to do plastic or cosmetic surgery. They should look in the mirror first before giving out this advice to naive young ladies.

Just check out the blind item to see who Rajeev is talking about.

 

Bollywood Blind Item

Blind Item โ€“ January 2018 6

 

 

Timeโ€™s Not Up in the Hindi Film Industry

The discussion around sexual harassment and exploitation at the workplace has gotten louder on local shores too.

Iโ€™ve heard the professional conduct of at least two popular casting directors being seriously discussed at recent gatherings. Two former assistants of one influential casting head revealed that their jobs involved โ€œcleaning upโ€ after their boss had โ€œhad her wayโ€ with some young hopeful. They described the said big shotโ€™s appetite for strapping young fellas as an โ€œopen secretโ€. The same person was known to make young girls who came to her for acting opportunities especially insecure about their bodies, routinely recommending cosmetic surgery and โ€œboob jobsโ€ to correct their โ€˜shortcomingsโ€™.

The second casting director, I was informed, had a habit of sending messages to young women he was professionally mentoring,asking them to come for โ€œmeetingsโ€ late at night. He was infamous among cinema strugglers for showering extra attention on women who were โ€œpliableโ€.

From what one has been given to understand, these examples are a drop in the ocean when it comes to exploitation in tinsel town. The fear of taking names remains one of the reasons that culprits arenโ€™t taken to task. But in a landscape where men openly accused of crossing the line continue to go about their lives without fear of consequence, itโ€™s hard to say when โ€˜timeโ€™s upโ€™ will be called for sexual misconduct in Bollywood.

    I always knew shanoo sharma was shady. The way she acted on kwk, twitter so full of herself and arrogant. Im going to avoid sharmas from now on. They are shady as hell.

  2. Pav says:

    When I first started working few years ago in an advertising company ( not in India) they had a woman(definitely not a lady) who looked just like shanoo. She was in a very high position and she haressed young and upcoming models in both genders . I was at finance but got to know there were lots of complaints made to HR but everybody was hesitant to even discuss the matter as she had a huge international network.
    I had to travel to Mumbai after few months. There was a child model was aged around 8. She looked very pretty but her mummy ( model too) was saying she’s gonna fix the jawline and node when the baby turns 14. Everyone else was saying no she looks perfect yet mum was explaining how ugly her nose is right now and face would look too huge

    • Amanda says:

      My God,why do people hate themselves so much that they feel the need of plastic surgery… What is this fixing?.. I really don’t get that word.. Arent her organs functioning well.. Nose is doing its job,mouth is doing its job and they are not defective to fix…. I am not sure who is setting a particular standard for nose,jawline etc… The whole film and modeling industry should stop conforming to beauty standards.. Standards keep changing you know…they are only filling coffers of plastic surgeons and exposing themselves to a lot of inconvenience that comes along with plastic surgery…
      look what is happening in S Korea.. Almost everyone has undergone some or the other plastic surgery and most of the actresses look identical and difficult to distinguish… They don’t even win beauty pageants …

      • Shivanisd says:

        Why Korea, half of Bollywood has umdergone plastic surgery. I, don’t think its wrong but excess of anything is bad and its definitely not for kids/ teenagers.

  3. nefarious says:

    @Admin: I watched SRK’s speech at Davos which ended with him thanking all the women in his life sis, wife and daughter, Right after i had a hunch PC would come out with her claws. And boy i wasnt off the mark, PV has this post today.
    if i am not wrong, this is her PR at work, WIsh shed work to get movies than be so vicious

    • Amanda says:

      PC wants to work in Don3. This is the opportunity to remind people how wonderful their chemistry was…

    • Admin says:

      Doesn’t every woman, who has ever been in a relationship with a married man that promised her he will leave his wife for her, feels betrayed and used when he doesn’t and ends up leaving her instead? This is where the viciousness comes from.

      • Amanda says:

        Admin,did SRK promise to leave wife for her?

        • Kali says:

          There are whispers that Ashok Chopra’s last wish was to see his daughter married before he passed away. It is said that due to this PC was adamant on marriage with SRK, Anyway, his religion allows to take a second wife (provided the first wife agrees). It is said that SRK and PC agreed to fulfill his last wish. In March 2013 there were several reports that came our saying that SRK and PC had a secret nikaah ceremony in Dubai. Abram was born prematurely May 27, 2013. Ashok Chopra died June 10, 2013.

          It is also said that Gauri wanted a third child because she thought it was the only way to keep SRK locked into the marriage. Because it would be bad publicity for him to publicly leave her right after the baby was born. And she was right. It was a masterstroke. SRK couldn’t publicly leave her because of the bad PR it would generate. So SRK kept mum and never publicly acknowledged PC as his wife. And they eventually drifted apart.

          • Amanda says:

            Why did SRK tried to have a child with Gauri when he was supposed to be in relationship with PC.. I didnt get that… Does Abram have SRK’s genes or Gauri’s genes.. I am sure,he has one parent who is a caucasian..

          • Shivanisd says:

            To save her marriage. She copied Victoria Beckhams strategy.

          • Kiran101 says:

            Vb actually became pregnant… Gauri went for surrogacy…which could not have happened without SRK’s consent. Why did he consent to it if he wanted it official with PC.

          • Nefarious says:

            Some insider claims there is no truth to this at all. Maybe these articles were PCs way to addvertise the intensity of her relationship or may be to put pressure on srk if there was any pic or doc suggesting it happened, i reckon shed have leakedit by now

          • Shivanisd says:

            Srk wud have never left gauri anyway. PC is looking like a fool right now while gauri is hogging all the media headlines with suhana and srk has moved on to better things and focusing on his kids. They must know their dad had an affair with pc.

        • Admin says:

          No married men have affairs with other women by telling these women, “I am going to stay married and have fun with you at the same time.” He and Gauri did drift apart and they were both not happy. Perhaps, SRK was caught in the moment and later on, he snapped out of it!

      • Nefarious says:

        I agree with you admin. Just with PC track of hooking every married man, its hard to feel anything for her at all or justify her behavior.

        • Shivanisd says:

          Thank u so much. Makes me sick how pcs mistakes are always overlooked as shes a mainstream Indian while kanganas are always magnified.

      • leap says:

        I dont get why do these women think when being a partner in crime in cheating. A person who can cheat with you and is not loyal to his wife why would he be loyal to the person he is cheating with, So them feeling betrayed is not done To PC who keeps going after married men fool me one shame on you fool me twice shame on me . She is doing great for herself her its about time she finds a single man rather thn playing the jacket stunt and this is just trying too hard to get back in Bollywood using him

        • Admin says:

          Women are sensitive and emotional. Men know that. They know how to play with their feelings and these women end up believing what these men tell them.

          • Nefarious says:

            PC being a.n A lister and fairly intelligent probably should have known how the A listers are obsessive about their image. SRK isnt just a superstar, he is an international star. Imagine the headlines. She really had no chance she should have known better

          • leap says:

            yes i get it but my point is for both pc and kangana the saying fits ” fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me”

          • Shivanisd says:

            I don’t think women are more sensitive than men. They are just emotional fools. Lol did she really think srk wud leave gauri for a fake plastic surgery dukaan like her.

        • Manisha says:

          She isn’t a saint but why only blame the woman? She isn’t the one with kids or a family to support. Akshay and SRK can’t keep it in their pants when they’re the ones with a wife and kids. Of course they’ll do anything to not have their image tarnished. So can’t blame PC for acting emotional and like a woman scorned when all the blame eventually falls to the “wicked seductress” . BTW she has dated Shahid Kapoor, Harman Baweja, Aseem Merchant who were not married men.

          • leap says:

            well both parties are at fault. Srk for cheating and PC for being a partner in crime. Also how many times do they need to fall in the trap of a married man to know its not worth it

        • Shivanisd says:

          Shes not doing great. Her Hollywood movies are flopping and her show is really bad.

  4. nefarious says:

    isnt Mukesh Chhabra Gay? also Is this blind indicating that Shanoo asks strapping young fellas to give her sexual favors? Lol . she looks so wicked!

  5. Pooja says:

    I always thought there was something creepy and off-putting about shanoo sharma . Shanoo’s pictures with ranveer look creepy , i mean ranveer does hug people while taking pictures with fan’s but , his pictures with shanoo look off-putting for some reason -i guess there’s power abuse. Yrf is filled with creeps. Sometimes i wish ranveer changes his talent management agency , he’ll do much bettter- but then again he’s a yrf talent , so it’ll never happen.

    • Monalisa says:

      Not to mention apart from Band Baaja YRF gave him crappy movies Befikre, Gunday, Ladies vs Ricky Behl. He will not leave YRF as he feel indebted to Adi Chopra his mentor.

      • Shivanisd says:

        But Ranveers dad paid yrf for his debut so yeah, hes not really indebted to them that much.

        • Monalisa says:

          I didn’t mean he is indebted to YRF. I meant he is indebted to Adi Chopra because he consider him his mentor. He will only leave YRF if he has a fallout with Adi.
          I forgot add to my previous comment the crappy KillDill movie.

        • Anisha says:

          So hereโ€™s the thing: Ranveer would never do the things he does if he didnโ€™t have the backing of YRF. Simple as that. If it was just a pure-play talent agency like Kwan, Matrix, Bling managing him, heโ€™d act more sober, dress more decent, and so on and so forth. He can get away with everything because of YRF. So yeah, chances of him leaving YRF is next to zero.

        • sweettooth01 says:

          @shivanisd–well a lot of rich non filmy people r willing to pay crores to get their kids a proper debut film..despite that to get sucha great launch and to have someone trust ur acting skills when ur a beginner is huge and its nice to see ranveer singh rmr his roots even today..makes him more likeable somehow ๐Ÿ™‚ like u rightly said he doesnt have to be indebted, but since he is he seems more down to earth and likeable

          • Monalisa says:

            @sweettooth01 you have written what I was trying to say in a more understandable manner. He seem to not want to abandon the people/ person who gave him the break.

          • sweettooth01 says:

            @monalisa – ๐Ÿ˜€ i like that about him

  6. Amanda says:

    I heard Shanoo sharma takes a lot of commision for casting actors…I dont know how newcomers survive in film industry with leeches like this…

    off topic:
    I just watched padmavati. All the three leads Deepika,Ranveer and Shahid have done a good job.. Deepika looked very beautiful and acted well. Ranveer acted well and looked menacing,but in some portions his acting was over the top..Shahid was good too.. His acting looked natural to me and he had good chemistry with deepika.. Its sad that Shahid indulges in cheap jibes at other people’s expense sometimes.. Its better he acts humble and stay grounded for his own career.. He does have the talent…. Aditi ,and Raza murad were good as supporting cast… Aditi looked pretty… I didn’t like Jim Sarbh’s character and his acting.. he was distractive and looked a bit fake as per me….Anupriya Goenka who plays Shahid’s first wife was average and her crying scene looked fake… Some other actress should have been cast in her place…
    Visually the movie was a treat.. Every frame was colorful and grand…The songs are good and gel with the movie.. Overall,I enjoyed watching the movie and I wish,the protests stop and people get to watch the movie…
    Here ends my brief review…haha… ๐Ÿ™‚

    • nefarious says:

      Shahid retweeted a fans tweet which praised him over Ranveer. This guy is petty and very insecure. how did PC and KKK deal with him for so long?

      • Amanda says:

        Once upon a time he was on par with PC and Kareena… Now they are miles ahead of him… His insecurities has lead to breakups with his GFs and also his career which started great, couldn’t gather momentum…

        Deepika and Ranveer are promoting the movie to increase the collection,but Shahid is more interested in himself.. While DP and RS praised Bhansali,I didn’t hear anything as such from Shahid… To make matters worse,his wife mira is further inflating his ego and they appear to me as childish..

        • Rad says:

          @Amanda – How is KKK ahead of Shahid. She does very few movies. In her last movie udta punjab which was in 2016 she wasn’t even main lead. DP and RS praise SLB because he time and again casts them in his movies which are huge success. So obviously they will.

          • Amanda says:

            Kkk did udta Punjab on insistence of Shahid.. She has some major brands which she is endorsing.. Always in media for various reasons like Photoshoots, fashion shows etc… It’s only matter of time, she joins back for film shoots.. Her brand value is bigger than shahid’s

          • Rad says:

            Oh ok. I was under impression if she’s an actor she should be known for her movies and roles. I think Shahid is a very good actor and dancer. Mira is doing a great job of dragging him down. Initially I really liked her. Thought she was simple and sweet. God knows what got into her.

    • sweettooth01 says:

      i personally enjoyed watching ranveer singh more than anyone else in this film..he was captivating in every scene..felt he complerely stole the thunder ๐Ÿ™‚ a few scenes here and there were dragged and boring esp in the first half but RS lights it up everytime he comes on screen in this film..

      • Amanda says:

        In some scenes I felt Ranveer was over emphasizing himself… Yeah Some people liked Ranveer and some people liked Shahid(me including).. Liking someone is pretty personal :p
