Bollywood Blind Item 5 – February 2018
Today’s blind item comes fresh-fresh from Rajeev Masand. It has a couple of details in there that we were not aware of. Yes, we know this dude is a producer’s son and we assumed that he gets stars to show up because of that. As it turned out, thanks to this blind item, there are other reasons as well and one of them is his swanky gym. You know in Mumbai only a dude with loads of money can afford to have his own gym. The other famous gym that other stars use is at Sanjay Dutt’s place.
What can we say about this dude that you already don’t know? He tried making it in theatres and the audience rejected him. He has a film, or is it TV series, up for release online. At this point, it looks like his father is just giving him money to do the things that he loves. He wants to be a hero so bad, but only his dad sees him as a hero. The boy really tried, really really tried to make it, but all of his efforts went down the rich people’s drain.
He build up his body and showed it off and when that didn’t work, he tried comedy and when that didn’t work, he tried doing a serious role where he dresses up all gentlemanly and acts like the kind of guy that every girl would want. His father pestered the directors of the films he produced for them to hire his son, but all he got was negative responses. None of it worked, so he tried producing for a while. In fact, he has a film up for release soon that stars Taapsee and Saqib Saleem.
It seems that he likes to keep it close with the stars by inviting them to use his gym for free. It’s funny how his mother is one of those “matlabi” types, who only wants the best using this gym. It’s not like these guys can help her son, why would she want only the best stars sweating it out at her son’s gym? They don’t sweat money or talent!
Speaking of sweats, it’s the exact same reason we hate gyms: the smell of sweat! We prefer outdoor exercise with the company of stray dogs. There’s no better companion to exercise with than dogs because they never get tired and keep on going while you are gasping for breath and want some water!
Back to the blind item by Rajeev Masand, we have included the pictures of this dude’s gym, in case you are wondering what’s the big deal about it. All courtesy of GettyImages. It’s hilarious how he has his own pictures up there on the wall of his gym, freaking hilarious!
Only for A-Listers
This wanna-shine actor and son of a moneybags film producer may not have much to show in terms of lasting performances or successful movies, but he’s got nearly every young Bollywood star on speed dial and tends to constantly be in the company of the movers and shakers of tinseltown. Insiders say he cultivates these friends in high places through thoughtful gifting, and unlimited free access to his private gym, a custom- built, state-of-the-art facility in his own residence building.
Top stars have been known to use his gym for the simple reason that it’s got better equipment than some of the best commercial gyms in the city, but mostly because it’s private and exclusive and allows them the luxury to work out peacefully away from ‘common folk’ and their pesky phone cameras. More than one superstar is known to regularly work out at his gym, and a bevy of starlets can almost always be spotted on its treadmills, working up a sweat, thrilled that they don’t have to fork out a fat membership fee for access.
But recently, the young fella’s mother is believed to have visited the gym and noticed that it was filled with B-listers enjoying her son’s hospitality. She has since warned him to restrict access only to A-listers. She was particularly infuriated on spotting a dusky actress with an hourglass figure at the gym, and went on to remind her son that the lady in question had pointedly refused to act in a movie opposite him a few years ago, despite his father’s best attempts to woo her with a big pay cheque.
