Rajeev Masand has published a blind item in Open The Magazine about a filmmwala who may be outed in the #MeToo movement soon.
Social media is going crazy speculating about the reason why this filmmaker’s name has been dropped from the posters of an upcoming film(click here to read more). Rajeev Masand for once has posted a very short blind with barely any masala about the scandal. If this filmmaker is exiled then it will adversely impact the careers of many actors close to him. Especially this jail bird whose career has nose dived after he got out of jail. He was hoping to star in the next installment of a hit franchise & resurrect his career. Looks like that ain’t happening.
But we strongly feel this news will be buried soon. After all this producer won’t cull his golden goose. We wonder with whom this top male star will collaborate next considering he walked out of one project after both his producer & director were outed. His favorite director too is in danger of being outed. It doesn’t help that his last movie outing was a dud. Bollywood certainly will end up losing a huge talent pool in the wake of this movement. But it is the cost,we as a responsible society has to pay for the sake of keeping our women safe.
A top male star who took an important stand in the wake of MeToo allegations not long ago could be in the tricky situation of having to distance himself from a close friend and frequent collaborator if hushed whispers about this filmwaala go public and are proven true.
It’s all that anyone in Bollywood is talking about these days
Top Male Star: Aamir Khan
Filmwaala: Rajkumar Hirani
