Bollywood Blind Item – December 2019 – 23
The blind item for today is about this young actress, who has in some sort of way made a comeback in a recent film. The film was a big hit and her performance was appreciated by critics.
So, she was invited to this big roundtable interview that involved supposedly the best actresses of this year. We are guessing this is where this blind item comes from. Nothing new about this, most actors and actresses go through the same thing.
Haven’t seen the film that she’s in, but she was quite good during the roundtable. She has interesting inputs and was quite calm in putting her views across. Maybe it’s her voice, don’t know! But yeah, glad that she left that guy behind and moved forward to greener pastures. It’s nice that these ladies bounce back after getting with the wrong guy. They bounced back and how!
Check out the blind item from Rajeev Masand.
Hacks from Hell!
An actress who’s been pounding the pavement for some years now broke out recently in a film that showcased her as-yet-untapped comic timing. The response to her performance was overwhelming and the actress has revealed that everyone—her industry peers, the press and the audience—sees her with new eyes since the movie.
One of the first things she did after breaking out is change her publicist. She was represented by a small but competent agency that had worked hard for her at a time when, frankly, the interest in her was minimal.
But when her luck changed she decided she needed a bigger, more aggressive team that would land her the opportunities she thought she deserved. So she signed up with an agency that represents some leading stars.
The problem is that in trying to impress the actress that they’re looking out for her best interests, the agency has been making unreasonable requests to journalists, like asking for questions ahead of interviews. It hasn’t gone down well with media folks, who’re saying the actress is already letting success go to her head.
But the truth is she isn’t even aware the agency is systematically dismantling her relationship with the press. Because until now the actress has given interviews without trying to control the narrative. And more than likely she’d be horrified if she knew she’s getting a bad name on account of the hacks she’s hired.
