In B-Town some actresses are cast more for their friendships with the directors and actors than for their acting prowess. While this top actress has proved her acting chops after some movies where she played the glamour queen, she is still fighting for some big league films. Her close friendship with a superstar has got her some movies but she’s still hungry for more.
Her BFF, a young director who has made a couple of super hit films, was planning his next project, a very expensive affair with lots of VFX and action. Another plus point for the actress was that the film’s producer was another close friend of hers. While he was keen to cast the top actress – there was a slight hitch – it also starred her long-time ex-boyfriend with whom she had broken up a few years ago. Their breakup wasn’t amicable and in most interviews, the actress would keep very subtly blaming the young actor for it. While the actor has kept his silence with dignity, unfortunately, the damage has been done and he’s become the fall guy for their breakup.
When news of the expensive science fiction, fantasy adventure film reached the actress’s ears she was thrilled. She assumed that the producer and her BFF director would cast her, being her friends. The actress even sent out big feelers and hints through their common group of friends. The producer and director spoke to the lead actor (the actress’s ex) and asked him if he was comfortable working with her. To their shock and dismay, he flatly refused to even consider the idea of working with her and would walk out if she was cast. When they conveyed this to the actress she felt her BFF had not put up her case convincingly enough and had a huge fight with him. The helpless director, whom the actress has often called her 3 AM friend, told her, he had no choice. The actress said she didn’t believe him and stormed out.
Following this, a young actress, who has been winning accolades with her acting prowess, was signed opposite the tall and fair actor and the first schedule for the film is already complete. People who have seen the rushes are saying their chemistry is sizzling. The older actress (who was rejected by the hero) is still smarting from the slight and while she’s become on good terms with the producer again, is not as close to her BFF director as she used to be.
But then in B-Town, there are never any permanent friends and enemies so don’t be surprised if the top actress patches up (even if for appearance sake or in a professional capacity) with her BFF director and is seen socialising together.
