Fake and speculative stories of Hollywood actor Sir Ben Kingsley and Aamir Khan to have signed films by an wannabe filmmaker Nandita Singha seems to have finally reached a roadblock.
If sources are to be believed, Nandita Singgha claim to fame is a film inspired on the life of a Mumbai based journalist J Dey. To hype her market as a filmmaker Nandita has been concocting reports to media about A listers like Aamir Khan & Akshay Kumar being signed or considered for the role of the posthumous scribe.
While both Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar has blatantly denied to be associated with the project. Ironically, some news portals claimed that Aamir would consider shooting Nandita’s film before Dangal which created a rage in the industry.
A source close to the actor opted to quiz about the reports and astonishingly figured out that the said lady was merely trying to create buzz for herself so that the industry insiders take her seriously and was also hoping to rope in funds for making her dream come true.
When probed the spokesperson for Aamir elaborated, “Mr Khan is not in country. We haven’t heard of this.”
The height of concocting stories didn’t end here, Singgha’s PR Bandwagon suddenly planted another well scripted copy in Mumbai’s renowned tabloid claiming to have signed Sir Ben Kingsley. Nandita was even quoted of narrating the screenplay of her forthcoming project MegaCorp to the Hollywood actor known in India for his role as mahatma Gandhi. This too didn’t go good with Sir Ben Kingsley’s public relation team who called it a sham.
In an mail correspondence send to Shikha Dhariwal of World News Network Ms Christina Papadopoulos of B|W|R Public Relations who is handling Ben Kingsley’s account in New York slammed the news reports “She said Thank you for checking with us. Please know that this report is false. He (Sir Ben Kingsley) is not attached to the film,” the spoke person concluded.
Meanwhile a new set of stories of Hrithik Roshanwho’s roped in opposite Ben Kingsley and now the Slumdog Millionaire actor Dev Patel to replace Hrithik Roshanhas been making rounds on the media.
