Bollywood Blind Item – January 2020 – 17
This actor had one of the best turnover image in Bollywood. At least, that’s what we think!
You see, when he made his debut ages ago, they made fun of the way he looked and the way he sounded. He looked and still does look like his mother, who’s a famous actress on her own, and his voice was unusual. Not malkin kind of unusual, just different from the other heroes.
He was more of a comic than of a hero back then, which is he did so many films with other real heroes. Anyways, so his image surprisingly turned when he started dating Bebola. Suddenly, he became this royal guy who was very intelligent and all that. Now that we think about it, anyone who dates ‘Poo’ is undoubtedly going to be the most intelligent one of the two of them.
That’s what happened to him. So, keeping that in mind, people should not take him seriously when he takes. There’s a reason why his dad, a legend in his own right, gave his daughter the reins to the kingdom and not to him, his only son! He sounds like he knows what he’s talking about, most of the time he doesn’t.
Honestly, what he did was so unprofessional. He has said himself his co-producer/star is the best co-star he has worked with and he even slyly compared this actor to Khiladi Kumar, who’s famous for editing his co-star’s role in his film. The film that he acted in with this co-star that he likes has become a big hit, but instead of being thankful to said co-star he went out and ripped the film’s authenticity to pieces!
That’s dumb! And ungrateful!
Check out the blind item from Rajeev Masand.
An actor who earned praise for his performance in a big-budget epic recently received an angry call from his producer/co-star who was not pleased with his candid and public admissions regarding the film’s ‘authenticity’.
The producer-star reportedly asked the actor to refrain from expressing his opinion because it could be used—and in fact, was already being used—to undermine the film “and to further a political narrative”. The actor, in turn, politely promised not to speak any more on the subject.
The film, which is a big box-office smash, has been accused by its critics of distorting history and has been singled out for its ‘problematic politics’. The makers have insisted that the film is factually correct, and as it turns out, the film’s blockbuster success has suggested that the audience couldn’t care less, either way.
In that scenario, the producer-star would rather that his co-actor not upset the apple cart by weighing in with his own opinion, especially when it is critical of what the film is saying.
Actor: Saif Ali Khan
Producer-Star: Ajay Devgan
Film: Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior
Recently in an interview with Anupama Chopra Saif Ali Khan speaking about the distortion of the story in Tanhaji and in other films, he said: “It bothers me as an Indian or as a human being … Maybe be that I would be more careful next time … I don’t think it’s history. I know what the story was. I don’t think there was a concept of India before the arrival of the British.
