‘Bollywood Big Story’ to reveal B-Town celeb’s hidden side
New Delhi: ‘Bollywood Big Story’ will feature discussions on hot issues from the world of glamour with some of the industry`s who`s who taking their stand.
The first episode, which will be aired this Saturday, will see a discussion about actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan`s pregnancy and how it has impacted Madhur Bhandarkar`s ambitious film ‘Heroine.’
The likes of Karan Johar, Mahesh Bhatt, Sushmita Sen, Ram Gopal Varma, Ashok Pandit, Bhawna Somayya and Femina`s editor Tanya Chaitanya will discuss whether a pregnancy clause should be added in contracts of actresses.
"If the film is a glamorous diva film, then it`s obvious that the new mother-to-be will overshadow the image of the film, so I feel it`s unfortunate that they couldn`t resolve the deal behind closed doors," said Bhatt, referring to the Bhadarkar-Aishwarya issue.
Actress Sushmita Sen, who has adopted two children, said: "I don`t believe that what I do outside my job is anybody`s business, if someone were to put a clause like that on me, I would show the door to the producer."
Neil Nitin Mukesh uses his own brand of humour, saying: "All I can say is that I am lucky that I don`t have to sign any such kind of clause".
