Blind Item – October 2017
The blind item is a messy drama that has happened between old men or senior men in the industry. Published by PinkVilla, this blind item is about this recent biopic that has been in the news for a while now. The man that the biopic is based on has met two superstars, both of which are in the blind item below. While one of the superstars was already rumoured to be involved in this film, the other one wasn’t. It is a bit surprising to see that the other actor thought he was going to be in the running to play this role.
As for the superstar, who got signed on, he took his own sweet time to decide and eventually, decided to sign on BUT by asking a huge fee, which might just bring this film’s budget way high and make it hard to recover its costs. Why didn’t the director think of a normal and talented actor to play this role? Why this superstar? Rajkummar Rao is just fine as an actor and he doesn’t charge much.
Speaking of this director, clearly he hasn’t learned from his last big-budget film that fell flat at the box office. He was also embroiled in a sexual harassment case that has been quite quiet for a while now, most likely they worked it out or something. As for this actor’s father, he has said himself how he doesn’t understand how his son chooses the films that he does. So he should just step back and look at making other projects instead stealing ideas from the west to make other sequels to his hit superhero film. He should just let his grown son be!
That said, it will be interesting to see when this project will finally take off. This actor is known to not be able to work and focus when he is disturbed and right now, he’s in the middle of controversies that have deeply affected his image. He has to get fit both mentally and physically before this project takes off. On his part, he likes to take his own sweet time to make sure he’s prepared before he starts a film.
This FILMMAKER is FURIOUS his SUPERSTAR son has signed a CONTROVERSIAL film!
This film has been in the making for some time now and was expected to bring back the director to his former glory. In recent times, certain scandals have been associated with his name and he was finding it tough to get stars, particularly actresses, for his films. The film first went to a good-looking superstar who took his own time to say yes and finally said no because the script didn’t work out. The makers approached another superstar, known for his social dramas and while in talks with him, one of the people in the group sneakily approached the first star again. This time things worked out and the star was on board. But one person, who is extremely unhappy with the entire affair, is the star’s father, a powerful filmmaker in his own right.
The filmmaker is known to advise his son on his career and this time is upset that his son is not listening to him and instead got involved in such a controversial film. The script also hasn’t been changed and the father is known to be very particular about the creative bits. The star has been saying no to his own home productions and gone ahead and given the nod to the director of scandalous repute – something which has upset the father more. But the star’s father cannot do anything but wait and watch and see if this project happens or not. If it does he will have to just smile gracefully and accept the situation.
This has also upset the second star and changed the equations between the two stars who were friendly earlier as he had no clue the second star had been approached again. Again he has no choice but to maintain a friendly façade and pretend that all is well between him and the second star who finally got the film.
