Bollywood Blind Item – May 2019 – 26
When you work with the best fish in the sea, you are bound to copy his tactics. Wait! Did we say “fish”? We meant, snake.
So, when his last film with this popular producer released and flopped, Mr. MoneyBags stood up and took notice. He must have realized why he has to put in the money when his name is enough!
Since his last film was a big disaster, he needs a good film to put him back in the game. How else will he secure these high-deals with the TV networks?
It seems that Mr. MoneyBags is pissed that his other project with a top star has been in the making for so long and has been postponing many times as well. To him, that’s money that is coming out of his pockets for no fault of his own!
You know what rich people hate the most? Losing money! So, Mr. MoneyBags turned Mr. SmartyPants and cut himself a nice deal. If this film becomes a hit, it’s his name on the credits. If it flops, that ain’t his money for him to cry over it! It’s a win-win!
Check out the blind item from CineBlitz.
