Bollywood Blind Item – April 2020 – 6
This superstar is in the news for his and partners’ big contribution to fight this pandemic. This is not a blind item about that, but about another situation that this superstar has found himself in for almost 2 years.
The thing is, this superstar is known to jump on the popular bandwagon anytime he wants to do a film. As in, he simply takes in whatever hot director that is happening at the moment and signs up with him for a film. Of course, the directors get excited since this is THE superstar so they just go along with whatever he says just to please him. They change the story and adapt it to the way the superstar wants it, make the music the way he likes and take in the film whoever the superstar thinks will help make the film work at the box office.
The problem is, these directors became famous because of the way they do things. The way their storytelling and direction is. So when the superstar comes in and make changes, it’s not as pure and original as it was. What you then see onscreen is what the superstar wants you to see and not what the director originally wrote.
Then when the films flop and critics and the audience both show their dislike, the superstar puts the blame on the directors. Some he has lost touch with while there are a few that he is still friends with.
Bottom line is, he should work based on their vision and not his. If the story is theirs, they must have a background as to how that story came about. When the superstar comes in and makes the changes that he wants, it’s out of nowhere.
He claims to sign films by not even looking at the script or story, but that’s not the case at all! Maybe with the biggest producers of the country he does that, but not with the others.
With the film mentioned in the blind item, it’s the same thing that the superstar is trying to do. Was he in love with the idea or story that this filmmaker presented to him? Was there a script? Because how can you love the script then but now you want changes?
Unless this was an idea presented to him that he liked. But then, it was reported a while ago that this filmmaker went to this actor with a script on hand so…
Let’s hope he doesn’t make a mess of the story, a lot of his audience are waiting for his next film.
Check out the blind item from PinkVilla.
This filmmaker isn’t happy with the second half of his next starring a superstar; Is rewriting it
This superstar might not have had a good run at the plexes for sometime, but the actor has placed his bets high on his next, which will be directed by a much acclaimed filmmaker. The director is known for his brand of cinema that subtly puts out a message along with entertainment. The two are definitely teaming up for this project that they have been in talks for.
The project was supposed to roll out around April, but was later pushed to August. This happened much before the entire Coronavirus outbreak disrupted the schedules of several films. An insider tells us that the superstar wants this to be his big comeback vehicle and doesn’t want to take any risk with it.
The film, that deals with another social issue, like most of the filmmaker’s previous movies, is being planned as a fun, entertaining watch. But the actor isn’t quite happy with how the second half has panned out.
The filmmaker had several meetings with the hero and tried to understand his point of view. He also agreed that there was something amiss in the slater half of the film, so he’s taken it back for a rewrite. Currently, he’s making most of the quarantine and lockdown and has switched himself off from the world. He’s almost done with the climax and a little bit of the remaining is left.
The director plans to complete it by this month end and give another narration to the actor then. The superstar will definitely do this film and has put all his other announcements on hold because of this. So, he wants it to be completely ready before he makes it official. Guess the fans will have to wait a little longer, but it might surely be worth the wait!
Filmmaker: Rajkumar Hirani
Superstar: Shah Rukh Khan
That moment has finally arrived. Shah Rukh Khan has given his final nod to Rajkumar Hirani’s next which will be a dramatic departure for both the superstar Khan and the superstar-director. Many years ago, SRK was offered Hirani’s Munna Bhai. But they are working together for the first time now.
In a notable departure, Hirani moves away from his co-producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra for this Shah Rukh Khan starrer.
Says a source close to the development, “Rajkumar Hirani Productions and Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment will co-produce the SRK starrer. Hirani’s regular writer Parijat Joshi will script the film which is about immigration. It will be a light-hearted film. But would have a deep dramatic core to it. Most importantly, it is something Shah Rukh has not done before.”
