He is a greek god, but is extremely finicky. He can act, do action packed stunts & boy does he know how to dance. He became a national sensation post his debut movie & has remained in the A-list since then. But if his fans are to believed, he is yet to utilize his talents to the fullest. He has it in him to rule Bollywood, but is reduced to being in the list of the top 10 actors due to his strategy of acting in barely one movie a year. It is rumored that his PR agency has been paying his cocaine addict ex-wife to make appearances with him. It doesn’t help that an actress has been tarnishing his image publicly. Being a greek god has its own side effects!
An A-list star has rubbed the makers of a new film the wrong way by abandoning their project at the eleventh hour without so much as a warning or an apology. The makers of this film—a former studio head who’s set up his own shindig, and a senior director—were reportedly shocked to learn that the dates that had been allocated to them by the actor had been ‘transferred’ to an action movie that the actor had suddenly signed with a B-movie director he has known for years.
Insiders are saying the decision was not entirely the actor’s own. He was advised by family that his next film ought to be a ‘commercial’ film with strong box-office potential, and the action film backed by a major studio looked like a safer bet, seen through that prism. Word on the street is that the actor didn’t leave the other project, he simply told them they would need to move the film by nearly six months if they wanted him to be a part of it.
The filmmakers have been shopping the project around to other actors, but with little luck. Some say they are likely to wait for the A-lister to put the film into production. But only recently a rival studio announced a project on the exact same subject with an upcoming director attached, and this cannot be encouraging news for the filmmakers.
