Bollywood Blind Item – February 2019 – 6
It seems that the situation on this film is still going on. We thought they settled this issue way back. Wasn’t Kabir Khan supposed to be working in post-production? Then, there was also news about the star of this film letting the director come in quietly to work on the film. So now, what exactly is going on?
Is the director still working on it but the star would like people to think otherwise? Does anyone actually care? At this point, they should just do whatever work quietly and release the trailer already. What they set out to do and what this film has become is a circus. First, it was supposed to be a biopic of a man, who has achieved the impossible. That was their USP.
Then news came out that this movie’s story is fake and that the man it is based on never went through what he did. So, there goes their USP. This is going to a very interesting movie promotion. Can’t wait to see how they play around that. There is no way they will agree that they have known about it even though we all have.
Check out the blind item below by Rajeev Masand.
Word in Bollywood circles is that a prominent film director, who currently divides his time between movie projects and a top mini-series, has been roped in to fix the edit of a troubled film that has been directed by a disgraced former business partner of his. It’s not the first time this filmmaker has been recruited to salvage this gentleman’s film. In this case, however, insiders say he’s helping out not for the sake of his former partner (with whom he had a public falling out not long ago), but on the request of his producer- friend whose talent management company represents the star of the troubled movie.
It appears that the star and his producer father weren’t thrilled with the original director’s edit, plus the star had already publicly distanced himself from the director after he was named and shamed in a rather ugly scandal. The family reportedly decided it would be a good idea to bring in an entirely different ‘energy’ to look at the film afresh.
