Bollywood Blind Item – June 2020 – 8
This actress has been keeping herself busy ever since the lockdown started. She and her whole family got busy making videos of themselves doing random stuffs using this Chinese-made app.
For a while now, Bollywood celebrities have been saying they want to stop using Chinese-made stuffs due to the spread of this pandemic. Clearly, this actress does not believe in the same thing as she has been regularly posting videos from the same app.
She’s free to post what she wants, it’s her life so…But the thing is, the media promotes the videos almost as if they are sent to them to be promoted by her PR-people. For this reason, people also watch her videos which explains why she is among the top 50 most famous users or whatever you call that. And even that, her PR made is a point to let everyone know.
Guess this is the one way she has found to stay in the news. To think she has a newborn in the house and she still finds time to do all that. Is she making money from that app? That would explain a lot of things since her hubby was reportedly running out of money after being caught in all these betting scandals.
There was a rumour that she was looking to land a reality show with her family, which is why she has been regularly involving them in her video antics.
Check out the blind item below from Rajeev Masand.
Let Them Eat Cake
A ‘has-been’ female star is reportedly the subject of discussion in many a Bollywood WhatsApp group since the beginning of the lockdown. Many insiders have frowned at the actress’ “continuing lack of any sensitivity” for the manner in which she has “exploited this time” by posting a steady stream of cheery TikTok videos with her spouse and other assorted family members “as if practically oblivious to what is going on in the world—and our own backyards”.
The same actress was earlier slammed for posting videos of cooking fancy desserts in her kitchen while stories of migrants suffering from starvation had dominated the news. Her colleagues have noted that “if you were to look at her timeline you wouldn’t get any hint that there’s a global pandemic going on in the world”.
