Mumbai Mirror has published a blind item about the backstory behind the casting for the female lead of a mega budget movie.
We had earlier published a blind item about how this actress nudged her mentor to get her into a mega budget movie. Mumbai Mirror has now given us more dope about the casting backstory. Nepotism is now a raging issue in bollywood. Many celebs have spoken about it & it remains a hugely debated topic. But not just bollywood, other sectors too witness nepotism. Networking counts more than one's talent.
This actress though has shown maturity in the way she has handled the failure of her last film. She has managed to stay in the news thanks to her fake relationship with a young heartthrob. Her BFF too has been in the news & is getting her interviews published. Looks like her BFF too will be seen in a movie soon.
Blind Item A recent casting coup has had the entire Hindi film industry in a tizzy. But we hear there is a backstory to the plot. When the female lead for this mega-budget spectacle was first approached, she bowed out as the dates for the film were clashing with her mentor’s dream venture.
Then, when the mentor’s film was postponed, the actor jumped right back into the first film. However, unbeknownst to many, another pretty female actor was already approached and had taken the look-test. In fact, she was on the verge of being signed on, but alas. Perhaps this is what they mean by destiny.
Female Lead: Alia Bhatt Mega-Budget Spectacle: RRR Mentor: Karan Johar Female Actor: Keerthy Suresh
