Rajeev Masand has posted a blind item about an actor who is on a comeback trail
A few weeks back, we had posted a blind item from Mumbai Mirror which spoke about this actor who is trying to make a comeback (click here to read more). Rajeev Masand throws some more light on this topic. We do hope his movies choices are better this time around.
Speaking of the infamous bad boy whose career the manager is said to have sucessfully managed in the past, his upcoming movie will be the acid test. It is one of the first movies to be signed by the superstar post him firing his manager. There have been rumors that she is trying to sabotage his multi million dollar deals with film studios(click here to read more). The success of the upcoming film will determine the victor in this battle.
This star son, who’s been going through a rough patch in his career for some time now, is working towards an image overhaul. His first step towards that was signing a movie with the poster-boy of indie cinema. It’s a Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam-style love triangle in which he plays the sympathy magnet.
Next up, he’s being strongly pitched to star alongside our ‘global female star’ in a film based on the true story of a girl with a fatal health condition who had great success as a motivational speaker before her passing at the age of 19. The actor, along with the female star, will play the parents of the protagonist, a role that has gone to the child artist who made a huge splash in two movies produced by a top superstar recently.
Apart from mixing up his film choices and picking material that makes him step out of his comfort zone, the actor has also signed up to be ‘handled’ by one of Bollywood’s top agents, who was responsible for the image-reinvention of one of the industry’s most infamous bad boys. Sources reveal that the agent—who had a falling out with the bad-boy-turned-superstar— has taken up this actor’s work as a challenge, and is determined to turn around his career and people’s perception of him. By all accounts the actor himself has taken charge; the indie director whose film he next stars in insists that on the set he was professional, committed, and hungry to be challenged.
Well, who doesn’t love a good comeback?
