For a while now, there has been buzz about an affair between this producer-director and a newcomer. He gave the new actress a break in his film last year, after which rumours about their relationship surfaced.

Interestingly, the former’s wife has preferred to not react to what is now being called a torrid affair. A source says that the filmmaker’s wife, also an actress, is aware of her husband’s infidelity and has yet chosen to stay mum about it.

“The starlet is single but the filmmaker has been married for quite a few years now. His wife has been turning a blind eye to his antics,” says the source.

However, the actress wife, once active on the social circuit, has stopped making public appearances with the filmmaker. “She keeps herself busy by taking up roles occasionally,” says the source.

Meanwhile, the filmmaker has been aggressively promoting this starlet. “In fact, one of the actors in his upcoming film wasn’t too keen to have her on board, but the filmmaker shot down the actor’s suggestions,” says the source.
