Bollywood Blind Item – June 2019 – 10
It is quite clear where most of Bollywood stand on the #MeToo movement. By most, we mean the men, who are also guilty, and the women, who blindly support them. Can you blame them, though?
This is like someone comes to you today and tell you, “You shouldn’t brush your teeth when you wake up, it’s illegal to do that because you are harassing your teeth!”. This is the way they have been living for centuries, which is why we won’t see any change from inside the industry as long as the creeps are still ruling and still in action!
See this box-shaped actor, for example. He was said that he wants to beat up animals abusers and men to harass women and children. He doesn’t support any injustice against animals, women and children.
Guess with all that steroids, he forgot his own words!
It will be interesting to see who dares to work with this creepy and pervert director next. Who has the guts to claim they don’t know what happened or they don’t remember?! If they do, Tanushree Dutta is here to remind them!
Check out the blind item below from Rajeev Masand. By the way, these creeps can keep coming back, as the audience, you have the choice to decide who you spend your money on!
After a strapping action star was spotted taking meetings with a director who’d been recently named and shamed in a #MeToo scandal, news followed that the actor would be making a movie with the disgraced filmmaker, thereby ‘rehabilitating’ him only months after he’d been dropped from a multi-starrer project.
But now sources reveal that the actor may have chickened out after he came under attack from women’s groups and fans over his presumed apathy towards victims of abuse and harassment.
Meanwhile, the director has told friends he was blindsided by the actor’s volte face. The filmmaker has said he was looking forward to getting back to work. But he has realised from this incident that redemption isn’t going to come so easy.
Director: Sajid Khan
Actor: John Abraham
Director Sajid Khan and actor John Abraham on Wednesday dismissed reports of a collaboration. The denial comes in the wake of reports which suggested John will star in a comedy film directed by Sajid.
Sajid has been away from Bollywood ever since multiple sexual misconduct allegations against him emerged in the wake of the #MeToo movement in India.
When we at indianexpress.com got in touch with Sajid Khan, he stated that news about a film with John is not true as Indian Film and Television Association (IFTDA) has banned him
Sajid said, “It is not true, I have been suspended by the director’s association and I have not been working since the last six months.”
The director added, “I will finish my suspension period and only then consider work.”
John Abraham was last seen in Robby Grewal’s Romeo Akbar Walter (RAW). He will next be seen in Anees Bazmee’s comedy film Pagalpanti.
