Bollywood Blind Item – November 2019 – 11
This filmmaker is responsible for the many changes that happened in the past few years.
We don’t know whether he stayed updated or he sped things up because the situation in Bollywood was much more different before that.
In the blind item below, he is being credited for bringing in lots of changes, not to the film industry but to the housewives or rather, star wives. True, he did!
Life was so much simpler before then. Now everything is like being seen, heard and noticed by all means. They have all turned attention-seekers!
Anyways, you are in for a treat. You would never believe what the blind item below is about. But in a way, this is something that you can expect from this filmmaker and since his produced films are not doing too well, he might as well venture into something like this.
Thing is, will the audience be ready to see this? Don’t we have nothing better to do?!
Check out the blind item from Hindustan Times. Oh by the way, he’s apparently hosting a bash for this American singer. Now wait and watch all these Bollywood people flock in and harass her for pictures!
TRUELIES: Desperate Housewives Meets Bigg Boss?
It’s been a hugely popular reality series, one that documents the lives of real-life affluent housewives residing in varying regions across USA, with the first version, The Real Housewives of Orange County launching in March 2006. Since then, there have been spin-off series located in other US cities which have resulted in spin-offs of their own.
And now, sources say that the popular series, which brings to viewers the highs, lows and many cat fights of upper-class women, who lead unimaginably glamorous lives while flaunting designer labels and beautiful homes, will be replicated in India by none other than the producer-director who almost single-handedly introduced fashion, lifestyle, designer-wear, bubble gum and girl gangs to Bollywood.
This leading light and his team are said to have already begun work on the project and have zeroed in on the women who will be featured. They include an erstwhile actress, yummy mummy and jewellery designer.
And with women who have featured so far going on to become huge household names and mega influencers who run huge businesses in their own right, and the franchise being successfully replicated in countries like Greece, Turkey and Hungary, it appears to be an idea whose time has come for India.
Think about it: After launching a show on real housewives of Mumbai, which affords viewers a vicarious entry into the lives of a clutch of some of the city’s most glamorous socialites and celebrities, they can seamlessly have spin-offs of it in Delhi, Bangalore, Chandigarh and Jabalpur, etc.
So far though, there have been no confirmations on whether the alleged project is an official franchise of the original US series or just inspired by it, but word on the block is that it might just be a game-changer for web viewing.
“It’s Big Boss meets Desperate Housewives” as the source says.
Bollywood Director/Producer: Karan Johar
