Bollywood Blind Item – October 2017 9
The other blind item for today comes from Rajeev Masand. It’s about actor, you might or might not know him, and his road to commercial cinema. After acting in several Indie films that got him noticed, this actor is finally going to be seen alongside one of the top young stars of today in Bollywood. It definitely sounds like an interesting film and hopefully, it actually ends up being a good film. This director’s last film was good and entertaining, so let’s hope this one too works. This actor has it both, looks and talent. If all goes well, this film will end up being good for him. Come to think of it, any actor that acts opposite this young actress ends up not getting noticed as she tends to grab attention more than any other actors in her film. We don’t know if it’s the work of her PR people or her Godfather or is it really because she’s that good of an actress. Check out the blind item below.
This young up-and-coming male actor, who has mostly starred in promising, credible indie films until now, has been signed opposite an A-list female star in a top project that’s being co-produced by one of the biggest banners in the business. The film is a spy thriller based on a book, and while it’s primarily the story of the female protagonist, the actor has a solid role as her husband who is unaware of her duplicitous intentions.
Many would say it’s exactly the kind of project he needs at this stage in his career, to make a smooth crossover from indie star to a ‘mainstream’ leading man. The actor is aware of that, and in order to ensure he can fully exploit the opportunity, he reportedly asked the film’s director if he would appear on the film’s poster. Although it wasn’t intended to sound that way, the director thought it was a condition the actor was laying down before signing the film. It created some awkwardness at the time, but both parties cleared the misunderstanding later and began filming without any hiccups. So will he feature on the poster, after all? That decision, apparently, rests with the producer who has said all such calls will only be taken after the film wraps. So there.
