Bollywood Blind Item – December 2015
Today’s first blind item comes from Rajeev Masand. As opposed to his other blind items lately, this one is rather funny than scandalous. It also more or less confirms the blind item that we put out some months back. But basically, it comes to no surprise to anybody. The lead in the blind item below has always been like this except that now he’s trying his best to cover his tracks so as not to embarass his wife. Read the blind item below and see for yourself.
How to Avert a Domestic Squabble
A prominent male star, successful both at action and comedy, didn’t want any domestic distress after a tabloid recently insinuated—in a blind item, not unlike this one—that he’d gotten a little too friendly with the 20-something leading lady of his last film. Not the sort of star who throws temper tantrums or threatens journalists like some of his peers, the actor calmly called up the top scribe at the paper and only requested that the journo send him an email clarifying that the said piece of unnamed gossip was not about him. He neither confirmed nor denied the rumour; he didn’t throw a hissy fit that he’d been outed; he just politely asked for that email so he could quell his wife’s anger in case she’d read it.
The editor couldn’t turn the actor down, not after the good manners he’d displayed. The email was sent and a squabble at home likely averted.
