Bollywood Blind Item – July 2020 – 6
This TV actor made a comeback last year on this popular television show produced by the top production house in television. There was a lot of hype surrounding this actor’s comeback, but that didn’t last long when the actor announced he was leaving the show.
First off, it’s quite strange that he announced he was leaving the show just because he was disappointed with the way they shaped his character. It’s strange because he has not had a stable gig for quite a while now and this one was going to run for quite sometime, which means a stable income will be coming in. He had another show last year where he was the lead. We saw a bit of that but couldn’t keep on watching. It was bad!
Since we have not seen anything long enough of him, we can’t really comment on how he does but that little bit we saw was not complimentary of his acting skills. Even the promos for this character, he’s a bit blank on the face.
So as it turned out, based on the blind item below, he was ousted from the show. He didn’t resign voluntarily. Apparently, he asked for more money and the showrunner refused. Now the actor and his wife is pissed that his replacement got the same amount of money that this actor asked for.
This must mean that there’s something else involved. Now we don’t know much about his replacement either so can’t comment on his acting but there are two things that could be the reasons why the actor was replaced in the first place. One is, acting and the second is popularity.
The makers of the show must have hoped for a bigger outcome than the one they got so they went ahead and got someone else who is much more popular than this actor. This character is supposed to be a senior man, why not go with a senior actor instead of casting a younger one then graying his hair to make him look aged?
Check out the blind item from Mumbai Mirror.
A television actor and his missus are hugely upset over the ballyhoo his professional stance has caused. The actor returned to a show he had long bid farewell to recently. But the producer ousted him saying he couldn’t afford his high fees. However, we hear the replacement actor is being paid the same fees. The producer is being suspected of playing games just to keep the show in the news.
