A leading tabloid has written a blind item about a discreet romance between a renowned star & his ladylove coming to an end.

The blind item speaks about the renowned actor giving up his ladylove, who was also his co-star of a couple of films. Neither is he taking her calls nor replying to her messages. He has instead drowned himself in the character of his upcoming film. The actress is shattered as not only is her relationship over, but this signals an end to her career as well. Her last film was opposite the renowned actor & it was a big flop.

This couple’s equation has given fodder to several gossip articles in the past few years. They played father-daughter on screen. But an off-screen romance is rumored to have blossomed between the two. He was her mentor & beau. She bagged a big-budget project thanks to him, but it flopped badly. It was shocking considering the movie was backed by a big studio & the actor has a great track record at the box office.

The affair continued after the movie. It is rumored to have caused a lot of friction between the male star & his wife. But looks like the wife won this round as is the case with most extramarital affairs of Bollywood.

A leading tabloid has written a blind item about a producer who has registered ‘Galwan Valley’ as a movie title recently.

As per a leading tabloid, a Bollywood producer has registered ‘Galwan Valley’ as a movie title recently. He hopes to recreate the box office success of the movie based on surgical strikes in a neighboring country. He is hoping to relay the cross-border strife & subsequent tensions at the border. The article then cheekily adds that the country has to first strike back, in order for a movie to be made.

Bollywood producers are an enterprising lot. War movies have time & again done brisk business at the box office. The producer in question maybe anybody but we think it is either of these two producers. One among them has given a break to a lot of Bollywood outsiders.

The other one has only one big hit to his credit. All his other movies are major flops. We wonder from where he gets money to produce so many movies over the years! His previous movie was the subject of many blind items thanks to his daughter dating several actors who were part of the movie.

This big-budget movie starring superstars has been shelved due to the recent backlash faced by the filmmaker.

We had earlier mentioned how this filmmaker is scaling down the budget of his upcoming big-budget period epic which had an ensemble cast. The movie was originally conceptualized to be made on a lavish budget. It was supposed to star one male superstar & a male character actor, along with a couple of female superstars. But with the character actor’s star rising, the movie was rewritten & the character actor turned star was given a meatier role.

But the COVID-19 outbreak played havoc. The budget had to be scaled down. The shoots scheduled to happen in foreign locales were then moved to studios in India. But it was a young superstar’s death which was the final nail in the coffin as far as this movie was concerned. The backlash the filmmaker received post the actor’s death shocked the nation. The filmmaker is now an untouchable in the industry.

This is a big loss not only for the filmmaker, the celebs but also for the industry as a whole, which will miss out on a big hit.

A leading tabloid has published a blind item about an actress who has a troll army, which attacks anyone who offends her.

A leading tabloid has published a blind item about an actress who has a troll army. Her troll army attacks anyone whom she handpicks. They also praise her to the skies. The tabloid then mentions how movie stars usually paid only their fan clubs, which included their own hirelings. But this troll army is highly unusual. But then again this actress plays by her own rules.

While this could be about any actress, we are certain who this article is about. We ourselves have been at the receiving end of this actress’ troll army. We wrote an article about her, which didn’t go down well with her fans. They then shared the article among themselves & tweeted to us saying that they would give us a point by point rebuttal & asked us if we are up for it. This was a week back. We are still awaiting their reply. Her troll army was hoping that abusing us & leaving nasty comments will scare us. But we stood our ground. The troll army called us ‘paid media‘, but when questioned with hard facts they had no answer.

Sadly none of these antics have led to success at the box office for the past several years. But her acting prowess had led to a regular stream of work.

But the shrewdest troll army is maintained by the No.1 challenger to the box office crown. They first tweeted about how our article about their boss, was baseless. When they realized that we were in no mood to pull the article down, they sent us videos that showed their boss’s rival – the box office king, in poor light. We gladly tweeted that information as well. They too labeled us as paid media initially.

This TV star is an alcoholic & was provided alcohol during his stint on a reality show.

This TV star is one of the biggest celebs in the country. He is easily the biggest TV celeb right now. We never watched a single episode of his reality show. But we were inundated with posts that spoke about him on our social media feeds. He gets mobbed everywhere he goes. Don’t be shocked if he is seen in the lead role of a small-medium budget movie.

But if sources are to be believed, he is an alcoholic. The channel on which his reality show was telecasted knew about it. He probably made it clear that there was no way he could last several months locked up in a house without alcohol. The producers ensured that he was provided his dose of alcohol daily. They started giving him alcohol through juice packets. But he is not the only one for whom the channel made the extra efforts. One shouldn’t forget that the show’s host himself is a drunkard. Many other celeb needs too have been taken care of. This TV celeb is also into drugs.

The TV celeb has been linked up with six actresses. Some of them include his on-screen mother-in-law & the younger sister of a female movie superstar.

This celeb’s alcohol-fueled fights with other celebs led to huge TRP’s. Another friend who stayed in the same government quarters in South Mumbai as the TV celeb too had a few anecdotes. The friend mentioned how the TV celeb used to pick fights in their quarters/society as well. What you saw on TV is exactly how he is in real life. He was then arrogant for being a Xavierite. The friend used to watch the reality show only because of him.

Guess Who: Movie Star Disses Filmmaker-Chat Show Host http://theopinionatedindian.com/guess-who-movie-star-disses-filmmaker-chat-show-host/ http://theopinionatedindian.com/guess-who-movie-star-disses-filmmaker-chat-show-host/#comments Wed, 24 Jun 2020 10:08:22 +0000 http://theopinionatedindian.com/?p=12740 A leading tabloid has published a blind item about a movie star who dissed a filmmaker-chat show host in a video.

The post Guess Who: Movie Star Disses Filmmaker-Chat Show Host appeared first on The Opinionated Indian.

A leading tabloid has published a blind item about a movie star who dissed a filmmaker-chat show host in a video.

The blind item speaks about a movie star who is seen dissing a filmmaker’s popular chat show. He is then seen mentioning how he & an actress had decided to get the entire industry to boycott the show. The star then goes on to complain about how the filmmaker makes money at his expense. He then goes on to dismiss the coveted prize the celebs win on the show.

Many are questioning the timing of the video making the rounds of the internet. How did a video shot several years back suddenly go viral? But to be fair to the movie star, he is not wrong. The movie star’s late father had come down heavily on a few female stars & the host for having a laugh at the expense of his son’s reputation. Truth be told the late actor should have first schooled his son to stop being a walking d*&*o & not the women.

But the filmmaker went on to host several seasons of the toxic show. The show was the epicenter of several controversies. Many celebs were at the receiving end of b*&^y comments. Several of those comments are now coming back to haunt some celebs. Despite these stars protesting the filmmaker showed no inclination towards either changing the show’s format. While the celeb guests got nothing apart from a token high-end phone, the host went back home several millions richer.

Now one can’t blame people for labeling the filmmaker as a bully. The celeb who was self admittedly at the receiving end of jokes & bullying in school is now bullying others by instigating journos & his celeb pals to attack others.

All the star kids including the ones who have always warm & cordial to outsiders too have to now bear the brunt for the filmmaker’s stupidity & greed. The movie star was shrewd enough to exonerate himself of any wrongdoing when it comes to that toxic show. It is likely that he ‘nudged’ his fans to make the video go viral.

Not only is the celeb hugely talented, but he is also a warm person. Barring women & cocaine, there is nothing to complain about. He is grounded despite being a 4th generation actor.

This superstar has parted ways with his celebrity manager two weeks back despite having a successful stint.

The box office king’s reign started 10 years back. It continues to this day. Many attributed his spectacular success to his ex-manager. But for several reasons, they decided to part ways, with both blaming the other party. The talent manager was then signed on by another who is now the biggest challenger to the box office crown. The box office king, on the other hand, has seen his aura of invincibility lose its sheen.

So we were shocked when a reliable source informed us that the challenger superstar has parted ways with his manager. It seems the superstar thought that he doesn’t need the renowned manager’s services, as he is already a big star & he doesn’t need any manager to sell him. With producers & brands lining up to sign him, thanks to his dream run at the box office, he probably is wondering why he has to part with a % of his earnings. As any of the Bollywood fans will tell you that the superstar is very money minded.

Other sources who read one of our articles, messaged to inform us how the celeb paid 30cr to an actress to shut her up. The actress was tired of sleeping with the superstar & not get any good movie role. She got fed up & threatened to out him. The superstar is rumored to have paid the money through his producer friend.

Another source called to inform that there will be announcement from a studio about his movie releasing on an online platform by this Sunday. The announcement will definitely come before 1st July.

SSR’s Death: The Case For Blind Items http://theopinionatedindian.com/ssrs-death-the-case-for-blind-items/ http://theopinionatedindian.com/ssrs-death-the-case-for-blind-items/#comments Tue, 23 Jun 2020 09:30:46 +0000 http://theopinionatedindian.com/?p=12704 SSR's death a week back, has brought blind items under the scanner. But we believe blind items do serve a purpose. Read our article to know more!

The post SSR’s Death: The Case For Blind Items appeared first on The Opinionated Indian.

SSR’s death a week back, has brought blind items under the scanner. But we believe blind items do serve a purpose. Read our article to know more!

Sushant Singh Rajput was a talented actor who made it in Bollywood on the basis of sheer grit & determination. After becoming a well-known TV actor, he transitioned seamlessly into the movies. It is not every day that a TV actor who hailed from Patna becomes a movie star. He starred in a string of hits. But the law of averages caught up with him & some of his movies flopped. But he managed to keep delivering hits time & again.

But despite him starring in Chichore – a superhit, he was rumored to have not been working on any movie in the last one year. The blind items hinted at his behavior with a newbie actress, his temper tantrums, his behavior at parties for him becoming an outcast in the industry. But the truth was that he had several projects in the pipeline. He was looking for bigger projects & was probably taking some time off. What nobody knew was that he was suffering from clinical depression.

When he committed suicide, fans went berserk & started attacking Karan Johar, Salman Khan, Alia Bhatt & entire “nepo-gang” of Bollywood. Fans even questioned us for publishing damaging blind items about the beloved star. Kriti Sanon & Kangana Ranaut too attacked the blind items culture. We too were at the receiving end of a lot of hate from fans. Facebook has stopped allowing us to post our articles on our facebook page. In fact one can’t even share our posts on Facebook or Instagram anymore.

Blind items are being attacked for damaging a celeb’s credibility without offering any proof. But the fans too have no proof to show that blind items were the reason behind Sushant going into depression. Or that he was even disturbed by them. A celeb is used to people about them all the time & even journos writing everything that they hear about them. What bothers them more is bad reviews for their movies as it affects their career.

The Purpose Of Blind Items

1)Assume that if we name a superstar openly & allege that he harassed an actress by subjecting her to the casting couch we would have been sent a legal notice. Although everyone in the industry would be aware of the superstar’s reputation, no one would dare to speak or write about it. In order to name & shame a superstar one needs to have solid proof. Or the celeb can take the blogger/journo to court & file a defamation case. But by publishing blind items we make people aware of what actually happened behind the closed doors.

2) We have time & again spoken against renowned celebs like Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Anurag Kashyap, Anubhav Sinha, etc who stayed mum during the MeToo movement. These celebs are very vocal about other issues affecting the citizens of the country, but won’t speak a word against their colleagues. Their careers are more important to them than the lives of women/men who are exploited. Anurag Kashyap will speak against the PM, but won’t say a word against Vikas Bahl – his partner who was accused in the MeToo movement. The “fearless” Kangana too won’t shame the culprits. Naming any of the culprits without solid proof openly can put us in legal trouble.

3) Despite knowing about some celebs being connected to the underworld, the cops have been unable to put the celebs behind bars. That is because there is never enough evidence to prove that the celebs are actually involved with the underworld in a big way. It is only blind items, newspapers & some news channels which can speak about the nexus between Bollywood celebs & the underworld. But even the news channels, newspapers can’t say much beyond a point. As speaking openly will mean that the celeb will stop giving interviews to that newspaper/TV channel.

But it was blind items who did the job of unmasking the sleazeballs. While they continue to carry on with their business like nothing happened, readers of blind items know the truth.

3) Not just exploitation, blind items even touch upon topics related to drug abuse, temper tantrums, domestic violence. Any celeb who tries to pass himself off as a saint will be unmasked via blind items.

Why Celebs Hate Them

Will a politician who is involved in shady deals every speak highly of that annoying ED or CBI officer who is always busting his/her scams? No celeb wants their true faces to be revealed. Blind items are a way to say the truth about celebs without worrying about consequences.

Every time an aspiring actor thinks about sleeping with a filmmaker or casting agent for money, he/she has to fear blind items. Whenever a celeb exploits outsiders in exchange for roles, his only fear is blind items being written about him/her. Celebs who are cheating on their spouses or have underworld connections only have blind items to fear.

Blind Items are like a needle, which pricks the celeb’s conscience

Blind Items Don’t Just Entertain

Any aspiring Sushant or a Kangana from small towns like Patna, Lucknow, Jamshedpur, Ranchi, etc who reads blind items will be aware about the true face of Bollywood. He/She will be mentally prepared for the shady casting agents, sleazeball filmmakers & arrogant superstars. They will know who to stay away from during their Bollywood journey. Even if they are ready to “compromise” they will know whom to approach!(who are we to judge). They will then be able to make an informed decision as to whether to leave their homes to pursue their Bollywood dreams.

An outsider who doesn’t read blind items on the other hand will be totally devastated when he/she sees the true face of Bollywood. After having fought with their families & vowing to “not return till they don’t succeed” they will go berserk wondering whether to give up or to keep trying. Imagine that small towner realizing that his favorite hero is in fact quite the villain! The actress he dreamed of marrying is a b&%h & a gold digger.

Even those people who come from U.P, Bihar & stand for hours outside their favorite celeb’s house hoping to catch a glimpse or a selfie, will better utilize their time. They won’t lose friends with whom they pick a fight just because they dared to speak against their favorite celeb.

Yes. Blind items are not perfect. They do have their flaws. But they do serve a very important purpose – of keeping the celebs in check. That is why we need them! That is why we will keep writing! But we will also verify every character damaging blind item which we publish henceforth.

This actor is not too pleased with a filmmaker due to their movies getting into controversies.

A leading tabloid has published a blind item, about an actor who is upset with a filmmaker over their latest movie getting involved in a controversy. They have collaborated on several movies earlier. Their first film together got involved in a plagiarism row & is yet to see the light of the day.

This blind took us almost an hour to solve! The actor mentioned is a veteran star – the biggest celeb Indian cinema has ever seen & probably will see. His son is the best example to show that star kids don’t have it as easy as some people think it is. His performance in the movie which released on an OTT platform won us over.

He was recently attacked by fans for announcing the death of a colleague as soon as the colleague’s family informed him. What irked people was that he has the sense to number his tweet, while he went on to say how devastated he was! But for all his shortcomings, he is definitely a splendid actor. It would be interesting whether the current lot would be able to match up to him at 75+. Fans who have met him can’t stop about he warm he is as a person. Nobody is perfect they say!

While we thought it would be the junior star who has starred in a string of hits, who would have the bigger role, turns out it was the veteran who had the meatier role. The director of this movie which released directly online, has worked with both the stars earlier. In fact, he was the one who gave the junior star his break in Bollywood.

This actress has bought herself two apartments in the suburbs. She hosted a house warming party before the lockdown.

A reputed tabloid has published a blind item about an actress who has bought two plush apartments for herself in the suburbs. She hosted a house warming party for her friends at her new property, before the lockdown. A popular producer is rumored to have kept teasing her throughout the evening. He even remarked about how the locality is not up to her standards.

The actress mentioned in the blind item can be any of the producer’s protegees. So we are not sure who the actress in question is, but are fairly certain about the producer. There is only one producer who can be so upfront & make remarks about such things. He is known to look down on everything that is not up to his standards. This very habit has got him into trouble, with Bollywood fans angry with him over his condescending remarks on outsiders made on his celeb chat show
