January 2018 – Bollywood Blind Item 9
Today’s first blind item comes from Rajeev Masand. It’s about these two girls, one of whom has been the topic of many blind items because of her proximity with a superstar. It’s a simple blind item that is something that we have all thought of. True enough, this kid much like his older brother is gifted with a baby face. It will be really hard for him to be cast opposite the leading heroines of today because of how young his face looks. As for the girl, she did change her looks so that is not originally how she looked. She does look much more mature than him.
We know who Rajeev is referring to, but there’s a problem though. He added one more character to this blind item, which we know based on the picture wasn’t there in the outing. So either, it’s another outing or he just added someone to divert the readers from being 100% right.
Don’t know who we are talking about? Check out the blind item below.
It’s been learnt from someone who spotted them, that two young actresses who played siblings in a blockbuster movie not long ago were having lunch at a quaint little Juhu eatery with a young actor who played a key role in that film. In between servings of sangria and salads, the trio of ‘outsiders’ (who’ve each been warmly embraced by Bollywood since their breakout) could be heard sharing stories about the strange experiences they’ve been having with film folk. They also indulged in some harmless gossip, specifically about a pair of young actors who’re being launched in an ambitious remake of a recent Marathi hit.
The trio made observations that the second- generation star-kid looked older than the sibling of a top star that she’s starring opposite, and that the young fella should’ve waited before rushing into the movies.
The gossip was mostly inoffensive but it wasn’t lost on my source that it rankled the trio—each self-made and taking baby steps in the business— that ‘insiders’ had it much easier and yet many of them continued to pretend that nepotism (yes, that dreary word again) doesn’t exist in Bollywood.
