Blind Item – July – Bollywood 6
Today’s blind item comes from Box Office India. It’s about this actor, who pretends to be all humble in public but in private he thinks he’s a big deal. It’s an attitude problem. He is also rumoured to be very controlling to the extend that he controlled the way his exes were living when they were together. It might explain why he married someone so young not someone, who’s experienced and has achieved something in life. Ever since he got married, he has been throwing his marriage into our faces. He has also thrown away his razor and shampoo, but that’s besides the point. This blind item is all about him and his big ego. Let’s just say that his film later this year is one of the most awaited, but he’s not even the main lead; he’s the second male lead. Check out who Box Office India is talking about. This reminds us to the Filmfare cover he was on and he asked the editor to call him a superstar on the cover. Good thing that the editor thought it was silly to do that. Well, mostly because his last release was such a huge flop and disappointment.
Some people never change! This actor started off well and thought he had become a huge star, until a string of duds burst that bubble. A semi-hit revived his career and one assumed, or rather hoped, that the actor would have learnt the lesson that he is not a superstar and should behave accordingly post the new lease of life that his career had received. Clearly not, it seems.
The producers of his upcoming film were left stunned when in the course of a meeting to discuss the film’s promotions, the actor told them that all the communication about the film should centre on him, even though the film is a love triangle. While that would sort of make sense if the actor was the biggest USP of the film, the fact is that the female lead and the other male lead actually have better box-office records than this deluded gentleman!
So much for turning over a new leaf!
