Bollywood Blind Item – December 2017 10
The blind item below is the latest one from Rajeev Masand. It’s about this actor, who has been delaying the shooting of his film. We don’t know why he bothered to sign the film if he wasn’t happy with the script. No actor should sign and ask the makers to make the announcement and then delay the shooting of the film because they don’t like the script.
Liking the script is the number one reason to sign on the dotted lines. This way, he’s not only delaying the process but also making other people sit idle while he finally decides that he’s happy with it. He’s fine because he’s still making money, but what about the other people working on the sets, who are already booked and get paid by the day.
He should have been thorough from the beginning instead of already signing the film and subsequently, making an announcement in the media. Now, a couple of months later, his father is still not happy with the script. His father, not him. Only he knows if that is the truth or he’s having second thoughts on playing a character that is so far from what he usually plays and what he is in real life. It’s going to be a challenge!
Check out who we are talking about in the blind item below.
Spanner in the Works
A top male star’s filmmaker father has reportedly once again put a spanner in the works of a project that his son is involved in with a young director at the helm. This biopic has been twice pushed from its start date because the actor prompted by his father decided that the script was not in perfect shape. Apparently, the director has already lined up his crew, but the team is waiting around twiddling their thumbs because they have no idea when the film will finally go on the floors.
While it’s admirable that the actor does not want to get on the sets till he’s fully convinced that they’re working on the best possible version of the script, the director is reportedly growing increasingly frustrated by the delays. He’s confident that he’s in a very good place with the script, and is itching to get shooting. He’s also said to be a tad anxious, given that the star has lined up two of his next projects, and he recently walked out of one. “This is an actor who is extremely moody, so the entire unit is treading carefully. They know they’re not making this movie till they start shooting it, a source explains.
