Bollywood Blind Item – April 2020 – 33
Many Bollywood personalities have stepped forward to help those in need during this difficult time. Some are donating directly to those affected by this lockdown, others donated to the PM’s fund box and some are doing both and more.
The blind item below is about a star who has not donated yet. Now no other detail or clue is given, other than he wants to do something instead of donating cash or other donations. Meaning he wants his presence to be his charity instead of other things.
Something similar was also said by the American rapper Jay Z years ago when he made a comment along the lines of “My presence itself is charity” while trying to explain why he doesn’t help out people in need financially since he claimed to be so rich.
So the blind item cleverly disguises this actor as a superstar. But the thing is, all the labelled “superstars” in blind items have already donated and are continuously helping those in need. This means that the blind item is referring to not the usual superstars but to someone else along the same level.
There’s no one else but this actor, as we have checked who donated and he is the only one not featured. The only one, who is famous and relevant enough to be called a superstar! If he did do something, his father would have already let it out on social media. But as of now, neither Raymond nor his daddy have confirmed anything.
If you want to know who donated, here’s the link you can go to. This actor is probably saying that he is available to do the kind of video some celebs did from the comfort of their home. And that video will then be used to generate cash, which will be used as donations.
Check out the blind item below from Mumbai Mirror. By the way, all of these stars used to shout from rooftops how they were the highest paid and how much money their movies made. They are probably wishing they never did that now! Especially those who used to fake their film’s box office earnings! Now you actually realize who has the finances they claim to have and who does not!
MEMBERS of our film fraternity have been climbing over each other to provide for those feeling the pinch of the pandemic. From cash deposits to grain and supplies, actors and producers have been emptying their wallets to support daily wagers in a fix.
But there’s one superstar who has not only refrained from making an offering, he has even turned away a couple of institutions cobbling together such charitable funds. His standard response to such requests is, ‘Get me work, and I’ll do it for free’, and the money raised can be considered my contribution. A pragmatic way of sliding away with dignity, without actually shelling a penny.
Superstar: Ranbir Kapoor
