[Mid Day] This actor has always managed to impress critics and the audience alike with his spot-on performances. Even though his last release didn’t set the cash registers ringing, he was applauded for the way he portrayed his character. Now, we hear that this good-looking actor was bashed up by the producers of his film recently as he refused to allot dates for the dubbing.
Says a source, “He told the producers that he will only dub if they allow one of his close friends to come on board as co-producer. The makers tried their best to explain the situation to him, but the actor put his foot down.”
Adds the source, “Since the delay in schedule was resulting in financial losses, the vexed producers called up the actor one night and attempted to convince him yet again. However, the actor, who was hanging out at a filmmaker’s house and was in high spirits, began abusing them. This obviously infuriated the producers and they decided to teach him a lesson.”
The makers somehow managed to figure out where the actor was that night and landed there in a couple of hours. Says a source present at the scene, “The producers came in and began thrashing him. The actor then fled the scene.”
After the incident, the actor not only turned up for the dubbing session the very next day but also allotted dates for the remaining work to be wrapped up as soon as possible.
BG Note: Dubbing is a post-production process where additional recordings are made to be mixed with or substituted for the original production sound.

[Optional] Whose side are you on? The Actor or the Producers?
Aidan Turner (Poldark)
The picture looks like his publicity still from Desperate Romantics.
I was thinking H C….
MidDay is a Bollywood tabloid. No idea who this is.
I’m team producers and Michael F. has a weak chin and mouth, he could be beaten… easily.
Vidalia Q Intrigue says
I think it’s Hrithik Roshan. His last release (didn’t set the cash registers ringing but garnered praise for his performance) was Bang Bang, and the movie he didn’t want to do more dubbing work for was probably Kaabil (which requires him to do several different voices).
Ben Affleck his friend Matt Damon
I’ll go with the producers.
the description sounds like Michael Fassbender but I can’t imagine him being difficult on set for anything. I’ve only read positive things about him on set.
As far as whos side i’m on, if it’s Fassbender, his. That man can do no wrong in my eyes! Lol

Actor: Michael Fassbender. His last X-Men movie is underperforming but all critics raved about his Magneto.
Optional: I’m Team Fassbender. Fassbender is the greatest working actor in all Hollywood.
Good actor, shame he’s a thug.
If you can break into the big screen, you should appreciate the work. You’re just another pretty face and it doesn’t take much to replace you.
Ooops. I meant to post “this” under “beating someone is never the answer.” The producers are acting like the mafioso. It’s out of line. If the actor is being unprofessional, the producers should deal with him professionally, not by acting like thugs.
I still appreciated it.
Zac Efron Did the dubbing for “Neighbors 2” in Atlanta, ( while filming “Baywatch” )then later flew to L.A. to do reshoots for “Neighbors 2”
The makers landed there in a couple of hours
This sounds like RDJ who refuses to give it a rest with the “…only if you hire my pal, Mel” crap, but his latest marvel movie did extremely well (unfortunately). The pic looks like Cavill and BVS didn’t perform as well in theaters as the studio thought it would, so I’m going with him. I’m with the producers. He was hired to do a job, not to get his friends the hook up.
Oh wait it says the actor was applauded for their acting, so it DEFINITELY can’t be Cavill, lol
LOL! Too true, too true!
What, Johnny Depp? He hasn’t been hunky for a while and I don’t think anyone would dare beat him up so I have no idea who this is.
Spot on is an English term
Maybe Daniel Craig who has annoyed James Bond producers by quitting
