Blind Item – June 2018 6
While the blind item below is a little funny, it also reeks of desperation. First of all, this actor does not have as much money as you would think he has. When his dad passed away, he inherited the assets in his hometown. Those assets are highly valued because they are from decades ago or even centuries. It might sound tempting, but these assets need money to stay in good shape and to function. It’s why his dad turned the home that this actor grew up in into a hotel. His late father couldn’t afford to keep the big mansion running by himself, which is why he decided that turning it into a hotel would be better for them financially.
Now, this actor is not a successful Bollywood actor. He is not even in demand. His wife, on the other hand, makes things happen for her. We guessed that times were bad for them when she accepted a deal to launch a juice shop in a South East Asian country when she was pregnant. Before, she would look down on doing such things but as they say, desperate times call for desperate measures. The blind item mentioned how this actor bought jewelry for his wife, but told the store people he can’t afford to pay for it since he is bankrupt.
Did this actor not go to school or something? You don’t buy things you can’t afford! That’s why they tell you to study hard so that you can afford to buy the things that you want. But, we don’t think that is the case with him. Sure, they live a well-off lifestyle but that doesn’t mean that he has loads of money and that doesn’t also mean that he doesn’t have money. See, he can’t get away with this behaviour outside of India or even in India in places people don’t recognise him. We think this is a trick he has tried before. Why? Because we know someone who did exactly the same thing. This old man would tell his sob story about how things are not working out for him financially to get out of paying for things. It could be for services or fees, he got away with a lot. We think this is a case of people thinking that there are things not worth spending money on so they try to get away with it. The same people will not think twice before paying for a trip abroad. What? You say you don’t have money and then you are travelling abroad? WTF?!
These actors are the worst when it comes to paying, but again their tricks will only work in India and not abroad. If this actor tried the same trick abroad, they would have kicked him out and have him deported. It’s bad enough that he looks like a homeless person now, who has not had a decent shower, so there are no chances of him doing that anywhere at his favourite vacation spots. It is up to Indian people to not fall for these idiotic tricks and show these actors their place. Speaking of looking homeless, this actor has been sporting some new gold earrings. Maybe that was the purchase that he got for free. Knowing how he looks down on others, it is hard to believe that he is wearing the ear rings his character is supposed to wear when he is not on the sets. What we are trying to say is we think these are not his work earrings, so why is he wearing them off the sets? We checked his IMDB, he only has one show that is airing now and nothing else has been set in stone, in terms of movie projects.
Check out the rest of this story in the blind item by PinkVilla below. By the way, if he can’t afford to buy original jewellery, he can always go to Laad Bazaar just like his ex and their daughter did!
The star has to cough up MOOLAH worth LAKHS for his wife’s jewellery but says he is BANKRUPT
No matter how rich some people are, they always procrastinate when it comes to paying their dues. They shop for the most high-end, designer luxury brands, travel to exotic destinations, charter flights galore to any corner of the world and throw expensive parties at seven-star hotels but when it comes to coughing up the money for the expenses incurred, a few adopt delaying tactics.
Such is the case of an actor, whose career has been in the doldrums for some time but bought a lot of jewellery for his wife earlier this year. While his properties across the country run into crores of rupees, he has told his jeweller that he doesn’t have 20 lakh to pay for his wife’s jewels. The star owns expensive flats in Mumbai too and he and his actress-wife are known for their expensive tastes in chocolates, cheese, champagne and wine which flow freely when they throw parties. However, the actor is choosy when it comes to signing films because he has ancestral money so he can afford to sit it out, picking the movies he wants to do.
Of course, the star has a ready excuse – his movies have been duds at the box office and he hasn’t been on a signing spree, hence he doesn’t have any money in his bank to pay off the jeweller right now. At least, that’s what he told the hapless jeweller whom he’s kept waiting for months – he is financially bankrupt and can only pay once the money comes in. But immediately after that, the actor and his wife along with their child flew off to a luxury resort in Europe for a month-long vacay.
Interestingly, his wife is herself endorsing lots of brands and can afford to pay for her own jewellery. She loves everything that has a designer stamp and all things expensive – the huge rocks that she loves to sport on her fingers and ears are her personal favourites. The diamonds, rubies and emeralds in her jewellery collection are much-talked about masterpiece collections. But she is known to be stingy when it comes to spending her own money when probably she can afford to do it much more than her husband. The actor too is known for his expensive collection of exquisite watches.
We are left wondering when the star couple has so much money between them, why are they not paying the jeweller today? He must be probably ruing the day he sold his jewellery to them. Or maybe they are singing the song from De Dana Dan to him… “Paisa paisa karti hai, kyu paise pe tu marti hai!”
