Bollywood Blind Item – May 2020 – 9
Bollywood‘s people tried to do their part to help those affected during this pandemic. Did we say Bollywood people? Sorry, we meant KJo’s people! Everyone associated with KJo and Zoya took part in this supposedly Live event that was aired Live. We are saying “supposedly” because some appeared to have recorded their parts beforehand. Otherwise, how do you explain Aloo hopping from one place to another during this lockdown?
So this blind item is not about those who made an appearance on this show, it’s about the ones who didn’t. This superstar, everyone’s bhai, choose not to appear and apparently, he didn’t want to do it because the event was organized by his ex-manager. On his own, he is doing his part already by contributing and helping others from his own pocket.
There were two top actresses missing from the event. Though one had her husband made and appearance, the other one did not appear from her house where she is currently at during this lockdown. It’s very unlikely she was going to make an appearance considering the relationship she shares with Bollywood‘s mafia king aka KJo aka KebabJo.
Naturally, everyone who is on good terms and friends with him will be making an appearance. It’s also funny how he is not besties with PC considering how much he disliked her just some years ago. Does it help that she is married now or is it because she’s recognised worldwide?
Many can argue and say that the A-lister who did not make an appearance can be this other actress, but how is that possible when her husband made an appearance. Also, why didn’t she make an appearance if her husband appeared? Maybe she thought he was enough for the both of them!
Check out the blind item below from Rajeev Masand. With the money that this event earned, how will they distribute this among the needy? Or how will they use it to help those suffering now?
The Art of Giving Differently
Last weekend, during the biggest Bollywood-led fundraiser for Covid-related relief and charities, viewers were surprised that at least a handful of A-listers were absent. These included a muscled superstar, who, as it turns out, had been approached to participate in the ‘giveathon’ but chose to give it a miss reportedly because of the involvement of his former business agent.
The superstar and his agent had an ugly falling out some years ago, and according to well-placed sources, he did not want to ‘promote’ any cause she was so closely associated with. He did, however, gather actor and model friends who he’s been isolating with, and shot a video of them donating sacks full of foodgrains to needy families.
The other A-lister missing from the fundraiser was a top female actress who has never particularly enjoyed being part of something where the spotlight isn’t shining exclusively on her.
But news is also coming in that a handful of actors are upset that they weren’t invited to participate. A young actor with solid acting chops is ‘hurt’ that he wasn’t approached.
Superstar: Salman Khan
Ex-Manager: Reshma Shetty
Other A-Lister: Kangana Ranaut…Or Deepika Padukone
Young Actor: Ishaan Khatter or someone else!
