Cineblitz has published a blind item about an actress losing out on a plum project due the movie’s hero.
The bigger the star the bigger his/her ego. The actress in question was launched by his competitor & as an act of loyalty towards him, kept rejecting movies opposite the superstar in question. But looks like this did not go down well with the superstar – who is the current box office king. The superstar – a mentor to many budding actors, musicians, directors, is known to be very egoistic. He is notorious for holding a grudge. So unless the heroine doesn’t make a serious effort, she will keep losing out on plum projects.
The movie in question will be the biggest movie of the year, when it does release next year. It does face stiff competition from another movie, but both the movies belong to different genres.
This young actress had in her initial years openly expressed a wish to work with this top hero. But somehow the projects never materialised. However, the stars soon swung in her favour and she has since then gone on to become a formidable name in the industry. So, much so that when the hero expressed a wish to work with her, it was her chance to turn him away. And she did. Citing date issues, she turned down all prospective films with this hero. Well, now guess what, it’s a turn of tables once again. Slighted at being turned down by this heroine, star or not, the hero swore never to work with the lady again.
But guess what. It’s not as simple as it seems. The actress seems to be losing out on plum projects because of this hero and his star power. So much so, that a filmmaker who she is a favourite of refused to cast her in his film and opted for another face instead. And all this under pressure from the star-hero. This isn’t the only mega-project she’s lost out on. A few years back too, she lost out on a big film since the hero was a favourite of the producer and they let go of her in favour of their hero.
But while the other older project didn’t matter much, losing out on the new project has upset the heroine no end. But the filmmaker here is helpless in front of the hero’s demands and has no option but to adhere to his wishes and work with a heroine he’s never worked with before. Now, that the actress is facing the wrath of the hero’s ego, she’s probably wondering if she had made a mistake by turning down the film with him early on.
