Blind Item – October 2018 8
The #MeToo movement is still full on and people have been wondering if the A-list actors will ever be outed. No male star has been outed yet and it’s probably because the repercussions are worst. Look at the others cases, they are taking their victims to court. You see, the road for these named victims is not an easy one. At least, they have support from thousands of people and that’s quite something to keep them going.
Check out the blind item below that seems to be one of his sexual harassment cases and victims.
He Who Cannot Be Named
Even as the MeToo movement continues to throw up big names in Bollywood, many are surprised that top male stars have not yet been exposed. Insiders are especially gossiping about an A-lister who has managed to stay below the radar. His shenanigans are legendary. One actress recently sly-tweeted about the hypocrisy of offenders who are pretending to be allies, and well-placed sources say she’s referring to a star with whom she made a movie some years ago, only to be humiliated and harassed when she rebuffed his many attempts at ‘closeness’.
Another film he did saw his leading lady drop out practically days before the shoot began. While the producers savaged her in the press for her unprofessionalism, sources say she exited the project when she realised it was going to be impossible to ward off her co-star’s unwanted overtures.
Ladies such as her, and perhaps several more, remain silent perhaps because there have been no real repercussions for the ‘big guys’. Practically every instance of an actor being named has resulted in cover-ups and denials, and work-as- usual for the men in question.
