Bollywood Blind Item – May 2019 – 19
So much will be said about the blind item below. You all know the trend, anything about this actress triggers something and it just flows like a dam with no barrier.
Ok, so the blind item from Rajeev Masand today is about everyone’s favourite controversy child. This is the third blind item about her film. The first one was about her asking for changes in the script and being difficult on the sets. The second one was about her asking the director to alter the script so that the second lead actress has less to do in the film.
This blind item is about her refusing to do any hard action scenes, which is fine but in her case, she is telling the media that she has been doing these hardcore scenes.
Here’s the thing, there is nothing online that said she has been doing hardcore action scenes. All there are online is a bunch of pics of her going for training and her saying that the director is happy with the weight she gained.
Speaking of the director, she has been sharing happy pics with this actress so what gives? Will you let someone you are pissed off at put her head on your lap (literally!)?
You know this whole situation sounds similar to something Abhishek Bachchan did when ‘Raavan’s teaser released. He claimed he was the one, who dived from up above the waterfall but then later the stunt double aka professional driver came out and said Abhi was lying and he did the stunt.
Ok, so let’s just say here that Mr. Masand chose his words carefully while writing this blind item by successfully covering it up that it was a female actor. We thought it was a male actor!
A Web of Lies
Executives at a top studio that’s bankrolling a promising sports film which is currently in production have been expressing their frustration over the trouble they’re facing on account of their lead actor.
The star in question is reportedly ‘driving the film’s director crazy’, which, frankly, nobody is surprised by, given the star’s reputation for conflict, and the stories that came out from the sets of the last two films the star worked in.
On this set, the star is refusing to shoot any sports scenes that are taxing. A double has been recruited to perform all the scenes where the star’s face is not visible.
This wouldn’t be especially upsetting, considering many top stars refuse to shoot potentially dangerous action scenes or even those that are physically challenging, except that the star in question has been falsely claiming in interviews to have learnt the sport and participated in all the scenes shot.
The film’s director is bearing the brunt of the star’s tantrums, and is left with no choice but to rework scenes in such a way that the star’s body double is left to do the bulk of the heavy lifting. The star, apparently, has been incessantly complaining about ‘thigh pain’, asking to be let off anything that could aggravate the discomfort.
Meanwhile, the entire crew has been gossiping, questioning why the star chose to make a sports film if a stunt double was going to do all the sports scenes. The studio executives, for their part, are dreading those marketing meetings that the star tends to hijack, regaling the room with stories of bravado from the set.
What stories could the star possibly tell from this set?
