Blind Item – July – Bollywood – 2018
The blind item below is not about nepotism, it’s about having a rich producer father in Bollywood. From Rajeev Masand, this blind item talks about this guy who just wouldn’t give up. He wants the audience to accept him, but they won’t. For quite some time, he stopped acting so we thought maybe he has given up and is concentrating on producing. But alas, it was spoken too soon because he started working on a short story that was advertised on youtube.
The blind item talks about how he could not land any other acting jobs aside from the ones produced by his father’s production house, so he decided to step out and explore Hollywood. These Indian actors keep thinking that just because they have money, they will be able to land in Hollywood. If talented Indian actors are having a hard time finding good roles, what chance do these rich kids have? Some time back, even Sid Mallya went searching for Hollywood roles and so did Katrina Kaif‘s sister. It’s not that easy.
With this guy, he just doesn’t have it. We have seen the trailers of his films and we can see that he has tried everything to make his films work. These include body building, items songs, and what not. Nothing worked. Well, he is a rich kid so he has nothing to worry about. As long as his dad is alive, he will keep footing projects for his darling son! Speaking of darling son, can you imagine that he was rejected by the great Sajid Khan? This was for a role in ‘Humshakals’. Just imagine!
Check out the blind item below.
End of the Affair
This actor son of a moneybags film producer whose claim to fame is limited to the A-list stars he is able to draw to his home gymnasium, became obsessed with trying his luck in Hollywood recently. It might have something to do with his being taken none too seriously in Bollywood, where the only films he appears in are those bankrolled by his father. Hoping he might have better luck in the West, he reportedly reached out to an Asian-American casting agent who was working on a project in Mumbai. Not much came out of the endeavour, or his apparently mediocre audition—especially since the actor was too lazy to even respond to emails from the LA office. He apparently ignored emails and then claimed he hadn’t received any, but according to sources, he did get romantically involved with the agent. The lady tried hard to help him land a break in America, but found that he had neither the acting chops nor the commitment to what was needed to make an impression. The affair fizzled out, and the actor moved on to other women and interests after spilling the beans on his latest conquest to his friends.
