Bollywood Blind Item – September 2014
This week’s blind item comes none other than Rajeev Masand – the master of all blind items. It might be hard for anyone to figure out who Rajeev is referring as this is more of an outside gossip than an inside one – meaning it refers to people not from India. Read on to see if you can figure it out.
Not Really a Family Man
Turns out there’s a lot brewing between an up-and-coming male actor (not Indian, but one who frequently works in Bollywood) and his pretty female manager (also not Indian). No big deal in the matter, you’d say. Except that the gentleman in question is married and a father too. The lady manages not only this chocolate-boy hero’s career, but also that of another out-of-towner actress who made her Bollywood debut recently in a dud film.
Apparently when he saw photos of his girlfriend partying with the new friends she’d made in Mumbai splashed across Twitter and Instagram recently, he called her up one evening while she was out living it up and chided her for not focusing on her work. She, in turn, deduced that he’d become insecure of the fact that she was mingling with people he might know closely.
The actor, who has made a few successful Hindi films, has earned himself a heartthrob image, yet always projects himself as a happily married and committed husband. Yet his close friends insist he’s got a roving eye and tends to travel without his family a lot-which suggests he’s got a wider range of interests than he lets on.
