Pinkvilla has published a blind item about an actress who turned down an item song offer in an upcoming movie, starring her mentor.
He was the one who got her into the industry. He was the one who regularly cast her in her movies & made her an established name. They dated for several years. But his rampant womanizing, fear of commitment, her ambitions lead to their breakup. He broke up when she started getting close to a younger star. But he always had a soft spot for her. That explains why he started offering her roles again after she broke up with the younger star. But its not like she doesn’t “pay back” her mentor for his several acts of kindness (if you know what we mean)
The actress wants to probably cement her position. while item songs helped her climb the bollywood ladder earlier, she now wants to be known for her acting skills. While one can’t help but drool over her gorgeous looks, her acting prowess is a butt of a lot of jokes. We personally feel that her acting skills are fine for male oriented movies.
But her mentor values loyalty over everything else. Just like last time around, she has no qualms working with his rivals. But then again, the mentor too keeps casting her rivals in his movies!
This top actress was asked to do a sizzling item song in a cop caper starring a moody super star. While their last movie, a period love story, was average at the box-office, their chemistry in it (as their other films) set the scenes on fire. Wherever they went for promotions, their casual banter and repartee became the talk of the town. But now it seems that the super star is upset with the actress because she has turned down an item song for his home production, over another top hero’s movie. The latter actor and the super star had a falling out over the last few years and have not been on talking terms. This got aggravated because of the younger actor signing the super star’s business manager and taking away some of his endorsements.
The super star is keen to re-build the career of the top actress as she hasn’t got too many movies on hand. He thought she would love to do the sizzling item song as she loves dancing and many of her songs have become chart-busters. In the hot, raunchy item song, the actress would initially come solo and the super star would then enter midway through the song and join her on the floor. So, he was aghast when she turned it down when she heard who was choreographing the song. While she was keen that her close friend, another choreographer-turned-director, do the song, the actress, the super star was not. Certain issues have arisen between the choreographer-turned-director and one of them, is majorly, because she is working with the other actor, with whom he is having a cold war. While this choreographer-turned director earlier used to be the super star’s favourite too, the falling out happened when she didn’t have time for one of his songs as she was busy with other work commitments. Now the other choreographer, also a top studio favourite, is directing his movie’s songs. The choreographer-turned-director has not directed a single song of the super star since then. The super star, who is high on the loyalty and commitment factor, is also unhappy that the choreographer-turned-director is doing songs of his foe – the actor he has a problem with.
Another factor which upset the super star was the fact that the top actress gave away her dates for a flick which featured his bete noire – the actor whom he didn’t get along with.
Also, the top actress, who turned down the item song, is focusing completely on movies and not item songs as she wants meaty roles in movies or big banner production houses. While the super star’s banner is a big one, she felt doing an item song right now, could prove to damage her already fragile career today. While the super star is said to be upset now with her decision and is known neither to forgive and nor to forget, close friends of theirs say it’s only a matter of time before they patch up as he is said to have a soft spot for her. The actress is also very close to his family and part of almost every social occasion, that he or his family host.
Interestingly, the cop caper’s ex-wife had expressed a keen interest in stepping into the lead actress’s shoes but the producer (also brother of the super star) and the super star flatly refused. They don’t want the item song actress to be part of their movie in any way.
The item song, which was to be picturised on the super star and the top actress will now be shot on the lead actress of the cop flick. And this actress is only too happy to star in an item song (as it will fetch her more shows and events) and has happily given her dates for it.
