Paid Off For Sensitive Footage

man paying money[Mid Day] This actor paid a hefty amount to keep intimate footage featuring him and his ‘rumoured’ girlfriend from being aired on television.

He doesn’t have any projects in hand and has in fact, been in the news only for his liaisons with an actress he met recently. And although the two haven’t admitted to their relationship, it is being said that they are in love despite facing stiff opposition from the actress’ family.

In fact, the two have been spotted together on several occasions and a channel is believed to have acquired sensitive footage of the two together.

A source says, “This couple stayed in the same suite in Goa for a few days before heading back to the city. But when the actor got to know that a TV channel had captured him with his girlfriend in Goa, he is said to have used all means, including begging and offering hefty amount of money to keep them from airing it. The channel has apparently given in and now dumped the footage.”

      Honey try to keep up: firstly, “stiff opposition from the actresses family,” while Charlize doesn’t HAVE a family; second, Mid Day is a Bollywood gossip site….

      • 4sixx2 says

        Me- OOWWWW!!! Not very polite, Pinky. For YOUR education today, I’ll point out that “Firstly” should only be used with “secondly”, you spelled “actress’s” wrong, and your comma after “family” should be outside the quotation mark. Try to keep up, Honey.

        They’ve made similar comments to me. For some reason took it very personally to the rumour about Matt Damon being gay. I just ignored it. I’m sure Matt can defend himself if needed and Clooney had the best response to gay rumours about him (just Google if you don’t know).

      • LooLoo says

        No, the comma inside the quotation marks is the only correct way to write it. The comma should never be outside the quotation marks.

        Well I guess in Pink’s defense, as soon as they said Goa, I knew we weren’t dealing with an American actor. Still, just because it’s a blind item doesn’t mean that everyone on this site is gunna get it, especially if it’s a foreign blind (the majority of posters here are American, FYI…)

    • Booboo1068 says

      Good guess. I looked at the latest BWood celeb photos at the Blind’s source for clues. I think we’re the only ones so far who picked up on the Bollywood cxn.

    • Booboo1068 says

      Do you think the actor stopped the film because of her family’s objection to him? I think it’s because of the culture and family reputation.

      • shane10 says

        hey :) it’s either shahid or ranveer singh. remember reading something about them hooking up (during lootera). but the sinha’s didn’t approve..and they split up. so yeah..sinha’s care about reputation A LOT

    • katt388 says

      I disagree with this. If it was Tom he would be shouting and jumping on a couch yelling ” Look at me I am a straight man!!”

    • PinkSlip says

      Hrthik, no way: happily married. And it’s the girl’s family who is objecting—why would HER family object?? Wrong way round!

      • MaryClary says

        Don’t know if the guess is right or wrong, but its not crazy that a 23 year old girl’s family would object to her getting involved with a married 40 year old. Particularly given her history.

    Wouldn’t Sean Penn have done a lot more (and more aggressively) than “beg” the TV channel not to use the footage?

  2. sidhu105 says

    Just to let you all know, this is a Bollywood blind. The Mid Day appears to be an Indian publication. :)

  3. Madeleine says

    Has to be a Bollywood actor or actress. Mid Day is in Indian site and Goa is in India. That being said, I have absolutely no idea who this could be.

    I read this blind over and over and don’t get what the big deal is. Two people are dating and someone filmed them doing something “sensitive,” so why pay someone off? First of all, if it was sexual, TV could only show just so much, and if they are dating why is that such an issue? It does not say either of them are in a relationship with other people. If it were drug related then yes, I can understand that they don’t want this to get out. I think sensitive can mean just about anything. Am I missing something?

    • rosegold says

      It could shame her and her family? Mid Day is an Indian site, so the actor/actress are most likely Bollywood

    • La Llorona says

      Indian culture dictates that you do things through the family, and it was suggested that the Actor was seeing another actress. Like Rosegold pointed out, if the image leaks out, it’ll be the woman who is shamed.

    I think ‘rumoured’ is a hint. He’s not American. Stiff opposition from her family tells me she is still at an influential age (early 20s?) and he’s either: a bad boy, older, different race maybe. Those r the only reasons (justifiable or not) I can of why a family would not accept a romantic relationship. What about Russell brand?? Random but just came to me. He’s British (‘rumoured’), definitely a bad boy and I believe also loves India, he’s why he and perry married there

    • Booboo1068 says

      Agree with PinkSlip. Tho can we all agree it wouldn’t be out the question that RC was cheating on his GF. But I’m still going with a BWood actor. Maybe it will be solved one day.

  6. MVR says

    I find the amount of Hollywood guesses hilarious. I’m betting 90% of those people don’t know Goa is in India.

    • Booboo1068 says

      I think Ace would say all guesses are welcome but I was surprised how few of us missed the source of the Blind. Oh, well. No harm no full right?

    • La Llorona says

      Seriously! All these Charlize Theron guesses are killing me. It’s like people are just pulling out random names now. I’m not even seeing how these are connected to the blind item in question.

  7. jackballjonez says

    This is connected to that other blind we just had about the 2 people who looked like a secret couple and the girl was young. It is not sean penn. This is the second blind with reference to indian.

  8. kspeedian says

    It can’t be Charlize and Sean… They’re photographed ALL the time… Why would they suddenly care? Gotta be Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes.

  9. ValleyOfTheGalls says

    Actor: Tom Cruise
    Actress: Laura Prepon

    Scientology cult member and Tom Cruise’s latest beard.

  10. LALOVER says

    George Clooney & Frida Pinto. I believe there was another blind last week that could point to them. It would make sense that her family is PISSED.

  11. lamiadolcevita says

    HELLO this is an indian newspaper…
    The blind is about Bollywood actors- SHAHId kapur and SOnakshi sinha
