Bollywood Blind Item – July 2019 – 26
The blind item was going to come out after pictures of this actress and Raymond came out in the media earlier this week. The actress’ fans got to work and started a hashtag with her name on it as a way to plead and ask her not to work with this #MeToo accused director.
It is good that they are reminding her and letting her know how disappointed they are if she does indeed sign this director’s film.
If you don’t remember, the director was accused by two ladies when the #MeToo movement gain weight in India. While the media is saying that it’s not fair to target only this actress for working with this director, people should target the actor as well.
It’s laughable to think that some actors, especially the top ones, would care about women. On top of that, care enough to not work with a predator?! Come on, that’s a bit far-fetched. Heck, they might even be predators themselves so why bother!
As for the actress, it’s obvious since women expect other women to stand by them even if that doesn’t always happen, but it is what is expected of them.
By the way, the casting of this film is just getting ridiculous. It has been announced a long time back already and until now they haven’t finalized who will be cast opposite Raymond?! And, all this time he has been sending out sly feelers saying he doesn’t want to be in the film.
The fact that both this actor and actress together went for a meeting with the director must have been because he recommended her for the role. Whatever happened to that blind item that said he wanted his Aloo in it?
Anyways, so should she or should she not work with this director? Do you think any top actress will refuse to sign a film directed by Rajkumar Hirani because he was one of the accused? Hard to say… They WILL jump at the opportunity to be in his film.
One actress’ lost is another actress’ gain. Let’s see if this actress will sign with this director and if she does, what will be her reasons?! Let’s wait and see.
Check out the blind item from Pinkvilla.
This top actor thinks his wife is about to make her worst career move with an upcoming film
They may have set social media and the Internet collectively buzzing with their recent appearance in the home of Bollywood, but a little birdie suggests that this A-lister actor’s husband and immediate family members are not too happy with the film choices that she may soon make. While a fun script may be one of the reasons for the actress giving her nod, her close pals have a grouse with the one’s involved in the making of the film.
The leggy lass and her soon-to-be co-star fluttered quite a few wings back in the day and delivered hits but the new project may reignite the nostalgia quotient. And while the actor’s husband is all things cool, he thinks that signing this film may be his wife’s worst career move. Not just that, his family is also concerned as one of the honcho’s in question has been accused of sexual harassment. The actor’s husband is also worried about the fact that his wife will be working with this team in close proximity.
The male lead, who is infamous for his failed past relationships, is onboard with the project and it is just a matter of time before the two stars sign the dotted line. We cannot help but wonder the tension brewing inside the four walls.
