Grapevine suggests these actors are insecure because a new MOU can bring a full stop to their starry tantrums on the sets
Last week Bollywoodlife had reported that CINTAA (Cine and TV Artistes Association) and IFTPC (Indian Film and TV Producers Council) has jointly signed an MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) which says that the television actors who turn up late on the sets will be fined for their lack of discipline.
Many TV actors has raised their voice against this MOU and stated that such kind of an agreement is an injustice with the actors. Shashank Vyas aka Jagdish from Balika Vadhu said to a local daily, “Now, most daily soaps hardly last a year. We work in an insecure environment. We might have lot of offers today, but nothing tomorrow. There should be an understanding between an actor and producer. If an actor wants to take up another offer, he/she should be allowed to exit after serving a two-month notice period. That time is sufficient for the producer to look for a replacement.” Other actors like Alok Nath, Tina Dutta and Rashami Desai too have raised their voices.
Many amongst these actors who have raised their tainted opinions on the MOU have themselves been a defaulter for reporting late on the sets. We bring to you top four actors from the TV world who are rumored to be late on sets and to throw their fit around. These are the ones who would often say, “It’s my way or the highway.”
Ram Kapoor – The chubby actor has been ruling the TV world for quite some time now. His back to back hit shows like Kasam Se and Bade Acche Lagte Hain has made him a household name. Moreover, his multiple film releases like Student Of The Year, Mere Dad Ki Maruti and now Sajid Khan’s Humshakals have given his acting career a great high. This giant leap seemed to have taken a toll on the actor’s humility resulting to which he has time and again been reported to throw starry tantrums on the sets. Now with this latest agreement between the CINTAA and IFTPC, the Rakhi Ka Swayamwar host is apparently worried since he is known to report late on the sets or worst not turn up at all. We think considering his late found fame and money, the star actor should not have a problem in paying those fines. Right peeps?
Vivian DSena – Vivian who is also called as the star of TV, onscreen as well as off screen has been reported earlier for his starry tantrums. According to our sources, the actor is very moody and shows up late on the sets. This was even touted to be a reason for his sudden exit from the show Madhubala Ek Ishq Ek Junoon, where producers apparently asked Vivian to follow discipline or leave from the show. However, with his return to the hit show, we believe the actor has learnt his lesson and is now not threatened by the new rule that will be applied on the sets. Way to go Vivian, we surely enjoy your starry affairs onscreen than off-screen. What say folks?
Tina Dutta – One actor who has made the maximum noise against this latest MOU is Color’s hit show Uttaran’s lead protagonist Meethi. Tina had earlier said, “We are here to perform and entertain people; we are not laborers.” Is so much of rage really against the new rule on the sets or is she plain guilty conscious? Tina is known to throw tantrums on the sets of her TV show. The actor does not get along well with her co-stars and often reports late on the sets. Moreover, because of her starry tantrums the producers often had to arrange for a duplicate to fit in Tina’s shoes. No wonder this telly actor is all over the place raising her voice against the new agreement. Guilty conscious lady, hai na?
Mishal Raheja – Mishal who played Dattabhau in Laagi Tujhse Lagan was allegedly sacked from the show for his non professional behavior on the sets. This telly actor who found fame with Laagi Tujhse Lagan was apparently a late bloomer on the sets and had attitude issues. This dashing dude was last seen on TV in a special appearance on Zee TV’s Punar Vivah – Ek Nayi Umeed and is all set to make his Bollywood debut in Chetan Morada’s Budget Trip. The actor should be thankful that he is no more with TV, or else we wonder if his entire remuneration would have gone back to the producers as penalties to turn up late. Mishal definitely does not seem to have much lagan for his producers.
