Bollywood Blind Item 2 – March 2018
The first blind item for today comes from BollywoodHungama. We are surprised that BH also publishes blind items now. Surprised because these people have such good relations with celebrities that it might be hard for them to talk bad about them even if it’s in a blind item.
The blind item below has been reported earlier, it’s nothing new. The problem is these stories are not going to help this movie and this actress in any way. Unless, they are using reverse psychology to make us go see this film. You know, when the bar is raised so low people will be nicely surprised at how good the film is. You never know!
We are curious to see how this movie fares at the box office. It will be interesting to see how the audience takes it and reacts to this type of film. The blind item below is about the producer of this film and how he’s worried that this film is not really good. It’s funny because it stars his wife and yet, he could not have made sure earlier that this movie is the type of film that is suitable for her? Or was he too busy ‘mentoring’ his muse to bother about this? And now that the film is ready to be released, he’s having third thoughts. Third thoughts because they already had second thoughts when they decided to postpone the release of this film.
Enough said, check out the blind item below to know more.
Bollywood Blind Item: Failed promotions and flat comeback attempt for this actress
Word is, one of the leading production houses’ head honcho is a worried man these days and is suffering from a strange syndrome. Looks like his plan to re-launch a once popular veteran actress has failed. A little birdie tells us that the producer spent a lot of time and resources, developing marketing strategies in a bid to create positive buzz around the said project but unfortunately, all that planning and plotting has been unsuccessful. Such an awkward position to be in, for both the studio and the concerned actress, right?
So the film was originally supposed to release earlier but was pushed ahead as the studio cited a reason that they did not want to jeopardise their business prospects clashing with the blockbuster of this year, whose release date got shuffled. The real reason, it is touted, is that the studio head was extremely dejected that the promos of his pet project failed to create an impact and subsequently he gave an earful to the PR and the marketing head to come up with better strategies. The junta is not very kicked about its trailer neither is there any particular interest revolving around the movie or the actress anymore.
Last heard, the studio now has sort of given up on the project and are just waiting to get done with it. The marketing team has been instructed to stop spending on the promotions and cut back whatever costs they can on the film and just release it without any showsha. Tough luck for the actress, eh?
