Pinkvilla has published a blind item about the real reason behind a big budget movie entertainer getting rescheduled.
We were wondering whether the makers & the action star were too confident or outright stupid to go ahead with a box office clash with the biggest star of the country. The action star, may have given several hits but his films have been unable to cross the 200cr barrier. He doesn’t evoke the kind of craze the megastar does. The action star & the megastar share a strange camaraderie. The action star was rumored to be hooking with the megastar’s then GF several years back. The action star’s wife got back at him by cosying up to the megastar at a party. This did not do down well with the action star who called up the megastar the next day. A war of words ensued. But surprisingly, the two stars went back to being friends. The megastar’s GF, left him for another actor. Some say she wanted to be with him, but he dumped her when she started getting close to the other actor. But that relationship too did not work out. The ex-GF is rumored to be back in the megastar’s life.
Meanwhile, the megastar’s latest movie received mixed reviews, but is a box office hit. It succeeded thanks to the megastar’s sheer box office clout. But he has a good lineup of films to count on. We doubt whether those will fail. He may go around slapping poor security guards, but luck seems to favor him.
When two top filmmakers (one known for his larger-than-life, grand, romantic directorials and the other for his massy action entertainers) announce the release date of a big budget action entertainer, starring another mega star, it’s bound to make an impact. But when it’s without the approval of the latter, it’s bound to create massive ripples. He is also unaware of the quiet behind-the-scenes deal which has taken place between the mega star and one of the top directors. Apparently, the mega star has promised to act in the star director’s debut production, a remake of a super hit movie of the 90s and which is being directed by a blockbuster woman director.
Few know of the close bond that the massy director and the mega star share and that they have been in talks for a movie. The director has directed the mega star for the trailer of his reality show a few years back. It’s being said that when the massy director and the mega star were discussing the clash of their movies on a big event date next year, both decided that it wouldn’t make sense if they did. Why eat at each other’s markets when a sensible solution could be found? Now, this massy director has been scouting for a mega star to head the cast of his remake for months. The actor of his own film turned him down as did a few other top stars. Being in a quandry and not able to announce his first home production, he spoke to the mega star about it. The star dangled a tempting carrot in front of him – if he preponed his directorial next year and brought it to another date, he would act in the massy director’s movie. The role was perfect for the mega star, being the responsible brother of many siblings and he would suit it too, so the director jumped at the suggestion.
But while they were sealing their own deal, they hadn’t realise that it would make someone grumpy. The actor plays the main lead in the massy director’s action drama and he definitely didn’t want his movie preponed. But no amount of arguing or discussions could change the massy director’s mind and the mega star acting in his movie, needs a 200-crore blockbuster hit today. A feeble excuse was offered to the director’s actor that he couldn’t have two big movie releases in quick succession and it would work to the best of everyone (and the box-office) if their movie got preponed.
It’s interesting to note that, while the two filmmakers and mega star has been posting their news and pictures all over social media, the other mega star, whose movie was preponed has been quiet on his own news. The silence is deafening from his front. Not one tweet or FB message from him on this one and even his fans are extremely upset at the preponement. They feel that it’s the fault of the massy director who has let their mega star down and have been protesting against it.
It is not just the silence of the mega star whose movie release has got postponed, that is baffling – but the silence of the acclaimed filmmaker, who is directing the mega star, after a gap of years, in a love story. The filmmaker is also close to the classy director (who had announced the preponement of the action thriller with the massy director) known for his grand romantic dramas. Incidentally, the classy director is co-producing the action drama.
The multi-faceted filmmaker, known for his blockbuster hits, and blunt talk, has been keeping a strange silence on this one. Wonder what are his thoughts on this one?
