This blind item is from Rajeev Masand. It is about this global A-lister, who started off in Bollywood. A TV show & a franchisee movie about beach bods has made her a household name in the US. We wonder if she is still dating the superstar back home
By the time you’re reading this, a popular Bollywood awards event will already be well underway in the Big Apple. Dozens of film stars, filmmakers, plus-ones, and hangers-on have left for the city that never sleeps to participate in a celebratory weekend packed with self-patting exercises and activities.
The organisers have roped in a handful of A-listers, but were reportedly unable to snag this top female star who has emerged as something of a global celebrity lately. The actress had been approached to co-host the show with Bollywood’s savviest film director, and negotiations were going well. But, according to sources close to both parties, things hit a snag when they couldn’t agree on a fee. The organisers did not want to fork out the sum her agents had quoted, or even a number nearabouts that figure. The actress’ management was happy to negotiate a fee that worked for both sides, but refused to be bullied. The haggling apparently continued. Then she signed an international project that required her to be shooting in Europe on the same dates and she asked her team to end negotiations. The organisers suddenly didn’t have a star. But it was too late for a compromise.
The organisers subsequently succeeded in getting a male actor for the job, but they realised they’d missed out on a coup. Last heard, the actress has signed another international film project with A-list co-stars. The loss wasn’t hers.
Top female star: Priyanka Chopra
Today’s blind item is from Mirror. It is based on the scion of the first film family of this country – a bonafide star & the once queen bee of Bollywood. The lady gave up plum projects in the hopes of becoming the bahu of the illustrious family. Even though the guy’s parents never approved of her, the couple moved into a rented apartment & were to get married by the end of last year. But as luck would have it, the guy’s mom found out about the shady past of the actress in question. This made the actor couple to call it quits. Apparently the actor did not even break up properly fearing a huge showdown with the actress. One fine day when the actress was away on a shoot, he just vamoosed with his belongings! He has since gone back to his womanizing ways
News of the most famous breakup in Bollywood keeps coming. It seems the rented apartment the former lovers were staying in is considered unlucky ( for those who believe in this sort of mumbo-jumbo). Wagging tongues say it has brought about the professional downfall of one of movie-dom’s most successful filmmakers of yore. Why didn’t anyone tell me first, the poor rejected ex-girlfriend confided in her friends. Perhaps it would have saved her relationship, she thinks. As if leopards change spots, we tell you
Former Lovers: Katrine Kaif & Ranbir Kapoor – They had famously rented a house in Cater Road, Bandra
This young superstar is in a committed relationship with one of the biggest stars in the country, but still can’t manage to keep his p@*#k in his pants. He literally does everything that moves, right from the spot girl, AD’s, make up girl, supporting cast etc.
A group of comedians had even roasted our hero about his womanizing ways We wonder how his superstar girl friend is okay with the arrangement. Weird, considering the fact that she walked out of her relationship with another superstar because of his philandering ways!
