Rajeev Masand has published a blind item in Open The Magazine about a senior movie star who is particularly upset over the movie’s failure.
He was the reigning box office superstar. But his attempts at regaining his crown after a self imposed sabbatical failed. The younger lot had taken over. On the other hand his business too flopped & pushed him to the verge of bankruptcy. He then had to keep his ego aside & walk up to the studio bosses house, request them to give him a good role. While that act among other things which include his turn as a TV show host, turned things around it did come at a price. The studio now seems to have the upper hand in their dealings. If they insist, he has no choice but to take up the role.
We are wondering the reason behind his sudden interest in philanthropy. Not that he never donated for charitable causes, but he has never been so open about it. Is it the #MeToo effect? Our twitter followers seems to think so(click here to follow us on twitter)
A senior movie star is said to be especially upset about the failure of his recent film because— among other things—the movie had taken a serious toll on his health. Sources say the actor’s costumes were uncomfortable, and the film’s many physical sequences were hard to perform at his age. Looking back, he feels the discomfort endured and sacrifices made were in vain. Insiders also reveal that the actor was not particularly keen to do the movie in the first place, but was persuaded by the makers who were relentless in their requests for him to take the role. He is said to be disappointed in the makers for failing to spot the problems in the script and deliver a compelling film.
