Bollywood Blind Item – April 2019 – 22
Reading the blind item, we were actually trying to figure out who this actress who “is not known for her acting chops” is?! Like, for real! Until reading the rest of the blind item, we finally figured it out.
Who would have thought this actress would one day be deserving of an award. Ok, maybe she wasn’t deserving but this is like one of the few best performances of her career. So, obviously she would like to be rewarded for it.
After all, this is the same actress who thinks she is going to get a National Award for her role in an upcoming film starring the ever so big-hearted Bhai. Not her bhai, if you are asking!
This is the sad state of award shows these days. The only reason stars attend is because they are already promised an award. Then they pretend to be surprised when they win.
You all know the drill. It’s pretty obvious by now.
Anyways, so this big-name award show also did another version in the Middle East and a couple of actors attended. Apparently, this actress was also supposed to attend but then when the organisers decided to give away the award they promised her to someone else, who was more deserving, she refused to go.
In case you are wondering, they gave the award to Sonam Kapoor for all of her achievements in films last year.
Have a look at the blind item below from Mid Day. By the way, do you think this actress deserved the award over Sonam?
This actress felt betrayed as an awards event organisers made false promises
This top female actor agreed to attend a recent film awards in exchange for a Best Supporting Actor gong.
She is not known for her acting chops, but her performance in her last outing was appreciated even though the film was a damp squib.
But later, the organisers felt the other contenders were more deserving. She felt betrayed as they had gone back on their word.
In retaliation, the smart cookie – who had confirmed her presence at their overseas event – bowed out at the last-minute citing sudden work commitments. Soon after pictures of her vacation did the rounds of social media. She had made her point!
