Bollywood Blind Item – January 2020 – 18
The sequel to this film was announced late last year. It might have come as a surprise when they announced who will the male senior actor that will get the part opposite the female actress.
Now looking at this blind item, it seems that they purposely announced the new actors’ casting first so they can have time to settle on who will play the senior pair in the film.
Back then when the film released, it was a surprised hit. The actress in it was having a hit run at the box office with her films doing well and her pairing with a star kid back then was a huge hit as well.
They have since had a fallout for reasons best known to them but seriously if you think about it, if they weren’t romantically involved, they wouldn’t have been so pissed at each other.
As per the actress, who’s has since managed to get a permanent foothold in this industry by marrying Bollywood‘s biggest producer, the star kid actor didn’t want to be in this sequel. So….What exactly did go wrong? She is, of course, saying that they did approach him but he didn’t want to do it.
So, they ended up approaching another star kid because what better way to keep nepotism alive!
Honestly, the actor needs this and to think that he thought it’s not his age to do these silly films, is just dumb!
In his case, it’s clear that his wife doesn’t want him to sit at home and do nothing!
It’s good that he listened.
But…Why are they making a sequel to this film? Do we really need it? Next, will they make a sequel to their other hit film? It would be fun to see the pair in a completely new story that works for their age, a mature story.

This superstar wife asked her actor husband to sign this sequel, after he had rejected it once
Talk about second chances and you might thank this superstar wife to have saved the day for her actor husband. The hubby hasn’t had a successful run at the box office with his movies in recent times. Despite getting acknowledged and being known to be a thinking actor, this star’s films haven’t been able to weave magic. But he recently was part of a big film that did great numbers, although he didn’t play the hero.
Even if his films aren’t working at the box office, what’s surprising is that he’s still landing up plump roles, primarily because of his class acts. But we hear that he was in a completely different zone sometime last year. He was initially offered a fun commercial movie, that happens to be the second part to a hugely successful part one.
While the film reunites him with one of the popular heroines from his times, he happens to be the latest addition to the cast replacing another star kid who was part of the original. We hear that our star wasn’t convinced with the role and felt that it wasn’t his age and time to do something this funny as he wanted to be taken seriously. But his last film as a lead was a damp squib at the ticket windows and it was his superstar wife who knocked some sense in him.
The actress biwi told him that a funny rom-com is what he exactly needs to get back in the running. The producer is a good friend and she dialled him up and asked him to reconsider the husband for the role. She’s also extremely close to the producer’s wife who’s the lead heroine in the movie.
While the team was already in advanced talks with another actor who’s popular down South, they were happy that the actor decided to revisit his decision and they finally got him on board. It seems the way the film is now shaping up, the actor must be thanking his biwi for making the right career move for him.
