It isn’t only outsiders whose careers suffer because of the machinations of a this Powerful Production House (PPH) in Mumbai.
Star-kid Shahid Kapoor was also a victim of the same PPH’s dishonourable designs. The actor had a huge fall-out with the head honcho of the PPH after doing a film with him. Not only did the Head Honcho vow never to work with Shahid again he also did his best to dissuade his friends from working with him.
When the Head Honcho got to know that Shahid had ben signed to star as one of the two leading men in a historical epic directed by Bollywood’s most celebrated epic director the Head Honcho instructed his favourite protégé who was the other leading man in the historical epic to quit the project.
Like a robot the protégé went and told the epic director what his mentor instructed: he will work with the epic director only if Shahid is told to leave . This was at the final hour just before shooting was to begin. The epic director, not known to take nonsense from any actor, told the Head Honcho’s protégé that Shahid won’t be replaced.
Two months later the blue-eyed boy of the powerful production came back to the epic director saying he had been misled by someone and could be please be taken back into the project.
The rest is history.
