Bollywood Blind Item – June 2019 – 11
The blind item below came out last week. It’s nothing that interesting, really. Just a bunch of divas throwing a fit! Where was the anger when Mr. Canada was involved in snatching this famous South director’s script? The director was approached by Bollywood for a remake of his super-hit thriller and comedy film. And guess what happened when he came over to Mumbai? They decided everything without asking him and released the poster for the film without letting him know. It is surprising that he made his displeasure known publicly because most people in the same situation would just give up and go back home. But then again, he’s pretty famous – both as a director and actor and also, dance master!
Speaking of which… Was any of this covered by India’s TMZ, BollywoodHungama? Or they were not interested because they don’t want to piss off Bollywood‘s powerful people?
Anyways, a surprise came in last week when the director of this upcoming film, a sure-shot hit, has announced that he is changing the release date of his film so that it doesn’t clash with Bollywood‘s Ultimate Godfather’s film. The reason why Mr. Canada was pissed was because this made him look like the smaller star right before Bollywood‘s Bhai! He actually is, but the point is his ego got bruised, especially when they didn’t bother to let him know first!
The move is a win for his film because why compete with Bhai’s film even though it might be a creepy film since it’s supposedly a love story between Bhai and Aloo Paratha. Releasing this film on the same day as Bhai’s film will give both films divided/shared box office collections. By releasing separately, they will get to make more money.
What a time it is! There was a time with King Khan arrogantly released his film on the same day as Bhai’s film and it was a different time then so Bhai’s film ended up a disaster. Coincidentally, that film also had Mr. Canada and was the directorial debut of Mrs. Loudmouth (thanks to the kind reader who originally gave her this nickname).
Now, do you think King Khan would dare to release his film on the same day as Bhai’s film? In fact, he would have Bhai in his film to ensure a better released. So, how come Khiladi Kumar aka Mr. Canada not think about the outcome of his film? Surely, he doesn’t want another under-performed film? If that’s the case then imagine what they will say about this director? That he cannot get a hit if he doesn’t cast his usual favorite action star?

The REAL REASON why a BIG BUDGET ACTION entertainer got preponed by a MEGA STAR and a STAR DIRECTOR!
When two top filmmakers (one known for his larger-than-life, grand, romantic directorials and the other for his massy action entertainers) announce the release date of a big budget action entertainer, starring another mega star, it’s bound to make an impact. But when it’s without the approval of the latter, it’s bound to create massive ripples.
He is also unaware of the quiet behind-the-scenes deal which has taken place between the mega star and one of the top directors. Apparently, the mega star has promised to act in the star director’s debut production, a remake of a super hit movie of the 90s and which is being directed by a blockbuster woman director.
Few know of the close bond that the massy director and the mega star share and that they have been in talks for a movie. The director has directed the mega star for the trailer of his reality show a few years back. It’s being said that when the massy director and the mega star were discussing the clash of their movies on a big event date next year, both decided that it wouldn’t make sense if they did. Why eat at each other’s markets when a sensible solution could be found?
Now, this massy director has been scouting for a mega star to head the cast of his remake for months. The actor of his own film turned him down as did a few other top stars. Being in a quandry and not able to announce his first home production, he spoke to the mega star about it. The star dangled a tempting carrot in front of him – if he preponed his directorial next year and brought it to another date, he would act in the massy director’s movie. The role was perfect for the mega star, being the responsible brother of many siblings and he would suit it too, so the director jumped at the suggestion.
But while they were sealing their own deal, they hadn’t realise that it would make someone grumpy. The actor plays the main lead in the massy director’s action drama and he definitely didn’t want his movie preponed. But no amount of arguing or discussions could change the massy director’s mind and the mega star acting in his movie, needs a 200-crore blockbuster hit today.
A feeble excuse was offered to the director’s actor that he couldn’t have two big movie releases in quick succession and it would work to the best of everyone (and the box-office) if their movie got preponed.
It’s interesting to note that, while the two filmmakers and mega star has been posting their news and pictures all over social media, the other mega star, whose movie was preponed has been quiet on his own news.
The silence is deafening from his front. Not one tweet or FB message from him on this one and even his fans are extremely upset at the preponement. They feel that it’s the fault of the massy director who has let their mega star down and have been protesting against it.
It is not just the silence of the mega star whose movie release has got postponed, that is baffling – but the silence of the acclaimed filmmaker, who is directing the mega star, after a gap of years, in a love story.
The filmmaker is also close to the classy director (who had announced the preponement of the action thriller with the massy director) known for his grand romantic dramas. Incidentally, the classy director is co-producing the action drama.
The multi-faceted filmmaker, known for his blockbuster hits, and blunt talk, has been keeping a strange silence on this one.
