Bollywood Blind Item – November 2019 – 17
This filmmaker is said to have suffered a massive setback, according to the blind item below, but it wasn’t exactly a setback. His last film released in theaters and was a hit film. It even ended up winning awards, so no he didn’t suffer anything. Most likely what this blind item is referring to is that his name was dropped from a film he co-wrote. That film went on to be a disaster at the box office.
So, apparently he is done with his next script and the old men are after him to choose them for his film. Quite a situation to be in, right? He chooses one, he ends up offending the others.
He wants the superstar, who has been on a break now. Well, to be fair, this has been the story everyone is running with. But in this blind item, it is said the superstar wants to be in his film. So, what is going on?
Everyone thought the superstar would announce his next at his birthday party, but he didn’t so…
Check out the blind item below from Rajeev Masand. Can’t wait for whoever is chosen to answer the media about the filmmaker’s #MeToo’s allegations.
A Superstar’s Comeback?
At least two A-listers are reportedly wooing this top filmmaker who’s currently completing his next script. It’s no secret that the filmmaker, recovering from a massive setback, has been plotting his comeback. He’s reunited with his trusted writing partner and he’s been hammering out his next script. There is one series that he will helm for a major streaming platform, but it’s the film project that appears to have got at least two male superstars interested.
According to those with information on the project, it’s a rousing drama. The filmmaker is keen on doing it with the superstar who’s been on a break for some months now, but there are very strong ‘feelers’ from the other superstar who has said for years that he hopes to work with the storyteller on the right project.
There is also the issue of the third superstar, with whom the filmmaker has already twice collaborated, who may feel slighted if he is not at least offered the film before it makes its way to one of his contemporaries.
The filmmaker’s camp is convinced he is developing the script for the superstar in hibernation. A collaboration between them could be the perfect ‘bounceback’ for both actor and director who have been lying low for some time now.
