Bollywood Blind Item – February 2020 – 23
This top star has been featured in more than 2 blind items this week.
Thankfully, none were about his creepy ways but his movies!
In this blind item, it has been revealed that his upcoming film includes a special cameo from the director’s favourite friend, another top star. Coincidentally, both top stars are not very fond of each other and have not been for years but lately, they have put aside their hatred because money talks, right?
Back then, they were setting out at the same time and they were both in the same genre. They never got along for years and now suddenly they are all pally-pally with each other.
So this actor’s appearance was a surprise, that’s ruined now since you all know about it. The trailer of this film will be launched next month, but they had an interesting announcement earlier this week that saw 3 top stars in the teaser and only one of them was the hero of the film. The director sure has a big clout in Bollywood to make that happen. Of course, getting super duper hits at the box office is one of them!
It is strange how the blind item starts out by outing this top star’s special appearance and goes on to badmouth the other top star and his behaviour. It’s weird! Now the filmmaker isn’t too happy with said top star’s work hence he brought him his friend to shoot some scenes with him. Note how both action stars are addressed as “top stars” and not “superstars”!
Check out the blind item from PinkVilla. Are you looking forward to watch this film? We don’t really like to see cop dramas so have not seen any of this director’s cop films, even his last one.
Top MALE STAR gets paid WHOPPING 10 CR for 10 day appearance in action drama shot under hush hush conditions
This has got to be one of the most well-kept secrets of this year! The movie is an action-thriller-drama about cops and touted to be a blockbuster. Directed by a blockbuster director known for his back-to-back hits, the film boasts of a huge star cast and has two stars from other movies in extremely hyped special appearances.
The movie is toplined by a big male actor who is known to do art movies too. But now we have heard that one of the other male stars is not doing a cameo in the movie – but has shot for 10 days for a supporting role!
Not just that he has been paid a huge daily remuneration (as per his star status and market-rate) adding up to a whopping total! But right now, everything is being kept under wraps, to be sprung as a surprise for the audience later.
Rumors are rife in the film industry about the extended role of the top action star (who has also excelled in comedies in recent times) who has had a big hit to his credit recently.
While the star had shot for his cameo last year, he again shot for 10 days more, under very secret conditions and a location which only the team knew about. And for those extra days, the actor for paid a crore per day – amounting to 10-crore in toto (apart from his earlier remuneration of a three-day shoot)!
The director and actor have been close friends for years so when the director had approached him to do a cameo in one of his movies, the actor had agreed without hesitation. The movie, another cop drama, became a blockbuster.
Many people felt that the movie was a hit because of the actor. In recent times, the actor has given a huge blockbuster and today, trade people feel that even a five-minute scene with him will raise the footfalls in the audience.
While the movie is about cop capers (the director’s favorite genre), the social drama revolves around politics and corruption too. When it was announced with much fanfare, the cast was talked about as the hero was working with the director for the first time. It was produced by a top filmmaker known to be close to the hero.
Many action scenes were shot in foreign locales with the hero of the movie tagging his entire family to the cities and putting them up in luxurious hotels. But after coming back, the action-drama ran into turbulent times as the director started shooting and re-shooting many scenes. He was unhappy with some of the scenes, so he kept adding more.
The director is doing two more films with the action star (in the supporting role) so on the basis of his friendship with him, he asked him if he could shoot some more days. The actor agreed but by now with his recent blockbuster, his market price had got hyped too.
Also, he and the movie’s hero, while being great buddies in public, never really got well in real life. The hero is also one of the producers of the movie. The director and the action star shot for the extra days and the action and dialogue scenes have shaped up well.
Interestingly, though the movie has one hero and the others in cameos, the director has been promoting the teaser and posters with all the three heroes who have been sharing a warm rapport with each other.
It is expected that all the heroes will come together at a common platform to promote the big-budget cop caper movie for all events. But where does that leave the hero today? He is not just a top star but also a crowd-puller and all this doesn’t speak well of his star and BO status, does it…
