Bollywood Blind Item – July 2019 – 16
The other blind item for today comes is about this actress and the remix of an old song. The most upsetting thing about the blind item below is the truth that is written, which this hero is still working as a leading actor 25 years from the time this song was released while his heroine then is regarded as old news.
She looks stunning, still. Of course with some help, but she looks great. To tell you the truth, whatever they do with this new remix, it will never match up to the old song. The old song has so many memories to it, the music, the intro score, her moves at the beginning and so on.
It doesn’t matter who takes on the new remix, they will never match the original actress both in looks and moves. OK, so that aside let’s talk about how this actor has been obsessed with remaking this song?! It is almost as if he wants people to forget the original actress was in that song with him? To think that he thinks this song is famous because he was in it.
Check out the blind item from Open Magazine by Rajeev Masand. By the way, this BI just proves how egoistic and sensitive the bigwigs in the industry are. A senior actress cannot even make her displeasure known publicly about something this attached and personal to her. Even she has to “shut up” and pretend to be happy!
Not Ready to Be Yesterday’s News
A popular actress from some years ago, still working sporadically, still glamorous, is not thrilled that one of her iconic film songs is being revived and reshot for a new movie. It’s a song that put her on the map, a major turning point in her career, and one that established her as a leading sex symbol. She doesn’t think it’s fair that the song will now ‘belong’ to another actress when it is picturised for the new film.
According to the industry grapevine the actress made calls to those involved with the new film and let it be known that she was not pleased, especially since the actor who appeared with her in the original film still gets to be in the new version of the song. Indeed it is telling of Bollywood that 25 years after playing the lead in the original film, the hero is still a leading man in the new film. The heroine, however, is treated as yesterday’s news, replaced by a younger actress.
The makers of the new film mumbled apologetically but explained that they had no say in the matter. She even offered to do the song herself if they were determined to use it. Of course all complaints fell on deaf ears; the song has been more or less completed, and the younger actress on whom it has been filmed will add it to her vault of chartbusters.
