Shot in the dark: This married actor is smitten by his co-star
This married actor seems smitten by his co-star and wants to be around her all the time
This married actor is poised to make a comeback after a long gap. But more than his return to the silver screen, his growing closeness with his co-star — a relatively new face in the Hindi film circuit — is being talked about. And his attraction towards the girl has put the film's marketing team in a fix.
A source says, "Even though he worked in quite a few films, his career did not take off in earnest. He has pinned great hopes on his upcoming film and is taking keen interest in the promotional activity. In fact, he has requested the film's marketing team to accommodate the actress for the promotional city tours as he wants to be close to her at all times."
However, since the makers do not have a huge promotional budget, they had planned the tours with just him and another actor, who is part of the film. So the marketing team is confused if they should listen to the actor or the production house.
He is also believed to have told the organisers of a particular promotional event to invite the actress, failing which he wouldn't turn up. Sources say the actor's wife has got wind of the 'affair' and is furious. "It is not clear if the actor is just flirting or is looking for a serious relationship.
But, he has been recommending this actress to his filmmaker friends. Somehow his wife got to know about all this and confronted him. She has warned him against being extra friendly with his leading lady. So, the actor has decided to make solo appearances for the time being," the source adds.
