Bollywood Blind Item – September 2019 – 2
This movie has been talked about for a long time now and it’s not because it’s one of the most awaited project this year but because of who will dare to take up this part.
So finally this star’s name has been confirmed and now the search is on for the heroine of film. That aside that they shouldn’t be remaking old films, just leave it as it is. With all the writers around, can’t they think up of any new story to tell?
Frankly, this blind item sounds a bit far-fetched. For starters, this director’s last fuilm was a hit so why would she need her creepers-jeepers brother’s help to make this film when he gave back to back huge disasters?
It doesn’t make sense. Unless, she is feeling sorry for her brother and want to help him out. This would make more sense because asking him to come and help because he knows how to make comedies better than her sounds a bit too much.
It is interesting to see, though, how long will the industry pretend to be disgusted by him. By next year or …?
Check out the blind item by PinkVilla. By the way, this star is not too good at doing comedy. That’s not his forte and since it’s been a long time since he has done any comedy films, it would be interesting to see how he acts in this one.
A Me Too director is taking creative calls on a remake starring a dashing superstar
It was said to be the announcement of the year, but it’s been seven months and still the project is yet to be announced. Remake rights issues and lack of Bollywood’s top superstars pushed back the grand launch of this movie, till the dancing superstar came to their rescue and gave his nod.
Now talks are on with the spouse of a sportsperson to come on board too. The big-budget, multi-starrer entertainer, and the first production to roll from the stable of a ‘hit machine’ director is being helmed by a sassy director, who loves to talk.
Everything was going well till the project hit a snag – getting the remake rights of the movie from a reputed Bollywood person. The script of the remake needed to be fixed and certain creative changes required as they couldn’t go ahead with the original script.
Who better than to consult the director’s own sibling – known for his great sense of humour and entertaining movies? The sibling has attended all the script narrations till now. Buzz is that the sibling was even present during the scriptwriting process at a beautiful beach getaway a few months ago with his relative, the movie’s writer, and some members of the production team.
When the first draft of the movie got completed and was narrated last week at a hush-hush meeting held at the sibling’s home, the sibling sat and gave creative inputs to both the production and the creative teams, while his relative (the director of the remake), sat quietly and heard him out. The superstar was also present but didn’t participate much in the discussions.
The filmmaker, who is producing the movie, has handed pretty much handed over the reins to the star director (who is directing the remake) and is anyways, not in town, so he cannot say anything. But the question is, how would he take it if he knew that his star director, was involving the sibling in the creative aspects of the remake?
Interestingly, the handsome, dancing superstar, was quick to get on his high moral horse and replace someone from the creative team of one of his recent movies, because his name had got entangled in the Me Too movement.
There’s speculation that the superstar is so keen to do the remake at any cost that he has given his consent because of that. He is close to both the siblings and hoping that by the time the movie is announced, the sibling who was named the Me Too movement, would come out of professional hibernation.
Last we heard the writer of the remake has been complaining to his friends in Bollywood. He thinks at the end of the day, he may be given a raw deal, as he may have to share credit with the director’s sibling, though he has carved a niche for himself in the writing department as a master wordsmith.
