Rajeev Masand has published a blind item in Open The Magazine about the director of an upcoming movie starring an A-lister, who is keeping a low profile post being named in the #MeToo controversy.
This is the third blind item based on this greek god superstar. When one of our readers mentioned that his arch rival might be behind these blinds, we didn’t take it seriously. But post reading another blind item, we can’t brush that accusation off completely.
The superstar distanced himself from the director as soon as he was outed in the #MeToo movement. But if this blind item is to be believed it was all hogwash. But one can’t blame this superstar, after all barely anyone came out strongly for the movement. Besides he is bitter over not many supporting him in his war with a female star who accused him of dating her & then behaving like it never happened. But he maintains that he all these are baltant lies & a figment of her imagination. So he must have probably thought it was better to not ruin a good movie by acting like Mr. Upright, when half of Bollywood is sleazy. But all said & done, he would have earned a lot of respect. Case in point, one among the ruling triumvirate, who exited a movie after the director & producer were named in the #MeToo movement. Somebody must have shown him a viral video where a character actor literally outed his dad! Thankfully for him, his father’s name wasn’t mentioned(click here to read more).
Bollywood insiders are saying the MeToo movement has lost its steam after two tense weeks. After all, only one film director and one talent agency head lost their jobs after multiple women alleged harassment by them. There haven’t been any major consequences for others who were named and shamed.
This includes a film director who was one of the first to be called out for his reprehensible behaviour with a former co-worker. After the leading man of his under-production film distanced himself from him, it seemed as if his despicable actions had finally caught up with him. But sources reveal that he is supervising the film’s post production. Turns out the star and his producer papa decided it would be wise for him to keep a low profile while finishing the film, so he’s been flying under the radar, avoiding attention as he completes sound and background music supervision.
