A scene with her director and co-star - Rajeev Masand
Take your thinking hats out, people. This week's column on Open magazine by Rajeev Masand.
It’s got to be awkward for this heroine, who’s apparently having a scene with both her co-star and her director. The filmmaker’s near obsession with the actress is no secret in Bollywood, and neither is her married co-star’s reputation for fooling around.
Guests at a leading female director’s housewarming party last year claim they noticed the actress’ uninhibited body language with the actor, and came away swearing they sensed sexual tension in the air. On the other hand, there are incessant rumours that the actress is spending way too much time at the director’s suburban pad.
Not one to get serious about his flings, the actor has reportedly moved on now, but the leading lady’s ‘friendship’ with the director is showing no signs of slowing down.
An industry source says the actress is known to go quiet and become inaccessible when she’s spending time with the filmmaker, and on more occasions than one, her family (who do not stay in Mumbai) had to call her friends or her staff to track her down because she wouldn’t return calls and messages.
