More news-news than I anticipated today. Still nothing super exciting (unless you have a mad passion for Nawazuddin, or are a Zayed Khan super-fan), but at least something beyond “so and so’s maid tested positive” (stories that always make me think “wait, are the household servants still allowed to travel, or are they separated from their families indefinitely?”)
Nawazuddin Siddiqui Getting Divorced
Not much here, his wife filed for divorce and full custody, and her lawyer did a controlled rumor that there is more to the story. Pretty standard divorce rules so far, her lawyer isn’t going to put all his cards out, but he is going to make sure Nawazuddin’s lawyers know they are willing to go public with something. And maybe there is something there, and maybe it is really nothing but she wants custody and so is going to make nothing sound like something.
But also, the lawyer indicated that the situation came to a head because of the quarantine. Which I have been wondering about! Are we going to see more celebrity divorces because of quarantine all over the world? Different from all the regular divorces we might see, because part of it is perception. It’s easy to pretend to the public that your failed marriage is fine so long as you can quietly lead separate lives. But once lockdown hits, the whole shell game of “oh, our marriage is fine, I’m just living over here for 4 months during filming” falls apart.
Zayed Khan is Getting Re-Launched
I like Zayed, but isn’t he FREAKISHLY OLD for a re-launch? I think of that as more of a 30 year old’s game, and Zayed is 40. Also his Dad is coordinating the launch, and I think 79 is also FREAKISHLY OLD to try and save your son’s career.
Speaking of Sanjay, if I say “sleazy producer guy who cheated on his wife with Zeenat Aman and then hit her in public at a party so hard he damaged her eye”, this is exactly the picture that comes to mind, right? Really remarkable outside/inside matching moment.
