Today's Blind Items - The Other Side

It is fairly rare that I use the big blind of the day to talk about something from this country on the opposite side of the world, but it is just too interesting to not discuss. Plus, it will make you work a little bit to get the answers. With all the digging I have been doing on the B+ list actress from that country, a lead told me to look into a producer that our actress has been known to sleep with, not so much for parts, but also for favors from others who can then do something for her. They have also done some producing together. This is one of her main benefactors. Right now he is embroiled in a scandal for agreeing to pay stars their asking rate and then, after they have signed, cut their salaries as much as half. If the star tries to back out he calls them greedy. Meanwhile, he is funneling the money he is saving into other schemes, some of which he has done with the actress. The blind though is not really about all of that, but instead, the killing of his wife so he could sleep with as many actresses as he wanted without scandal. He made sure he had an airtight alibi, but he also knew her habits and knew she would eventually take the pill that killed her. The pill which was a replacement for one of the many she took each day.

it's on wiki
On 28 May 2018, TV anchor Cui Yongyuan used social media to leak a redacted contract disclosing Fan being paid CN¥10 million for her four days of work on the upcoming Feng Xiaogang film Cell Phone 2. The following day, Cui published a second redacted contract showing an amount of CN¥50 million for the same job, suggesting that the smaller contract was intended for reporting to tax authorities to avoid being taxed for her full compensation of CN¥60 million.[109][110]

This disclosure prompted Jiangsu Provincial and Wuxi City tax authorities to investigate a suspected case of tax evasion. Fan's studio issued a statement denying that she had ever signed separate contracts for a single job. They claimed that they would cooperate fully with relevant authorities in the investigation and would address public concerns.[111][112]

Fan was later presumed missing due to her last public appearance occurring on 1 July 2018 and her lack of activity on social media after 23 July. She broke the silence on 3 October 2018 by apologizing to the public for tax evasion after the Chinese authorities ordered her and her companies to pay about CN¥883 million (US$127.4 million) in taxes and penalties to avoid criminal prosecution.[113][114]

Thanks.. messy stuff there

Priyanka Chopea and Boney Kapoor whose wife died/drowned in a bathtub after allegedly being drunk! Her name was SRIDEVI!

Moose said...

Boney Kapoor was my guess as well Yep!

Moose said...

Boney married Indian actress Sridevi on 2 June 1996. The couple had two daughters, Janhvi Kapoor (born 6 March 1997) and Khushi (born 5 November 2000).[5] On 24 February 2018, Sridevi died[6] in Dubai after drowning in her hotel bath tub.

Figured it had to do with Fan Bin Bing and the tax cheating. Chinese money Laundering. Who is the dead wife?

Mrs Libnish said...

So was it Feng Xiaogang's wife that was killed for her audacity to be inconvenient to a man whore?

I googled, and no he didn't kill his wife. She's (Xu Fan) still alive.

Brayson87 said...

+1 yep, He fits:

+ Moose,jinx.

"On 24 February 2018, Sridevi was found dead in her guest room at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The official coroner's report showed that she had accidentally drowned in the bathtub, with unconsciousness cited as a contributing factor.[19]"

yepthatsme said...

Did Enty just mix two blinds in one? Or he got confused between Indian and Chinese actors? There have been rumours that Boney had his wife killed but there has been absolutely no news about him being embroiled in any kind of pay controversy to actors!

filmfanb said...

Priyanka just got cast in the new matrix movie and i dont feel good about it

prixie said...

Nah. This is boney Kapoor and priyanka Chopra. Sridevi's death was always a mystery. He came back a day earlier and then went again to Dubai to surprise her and then she died. Sridevi is the one with money who was basically paying everything in their and their kids life. I am bummed because I freelanced with her on her movie Mom and she was so genuine and approachable and made me feel like home in a diff country.

Guesser said...

@yepthatsme, that's exactly what it sounds like. Although the pay difference was larger in China. I think this is intentional. A red herring to keep us from the obvious Pyrianka answer. She is someone who Enty would do a deep dive on.

Brayson87 said...

Oh sh!t, Boney was the one who found her body!

Alf Landon said...

Who would want to sleep with pancake breasts Chopra?

Nommeeee said...

This!!! Her death was dodgy af!

Drewholtaus said...

Prianka up for matrix 4..

Boldblonde said...

Boney for sure. First one that came to mind. It's no secret that he killed his wife.

karma police said...

The wonderful SRI DEVI and her criminal pig husband

Count Jerkula said...

Bollywood blind almost as worthless as kpop. Just enty pandering for backlinks and clicks to werk that alexa ranking.

idiot slayer said...

Just because you can't fathom the world beyond your own asshole doesn't mean everyone else is as insipid.

Notagoodscreenname said...

Why would he kill his wife to screw other women? Just divorce. Give the wife a few million and be done.

RedRobin said...

@Notagoodscreenname Apparently whatever money there was, was hers. Maybe he was scared she would leave him if she found out he was cheating? I wonder how much she was insured for? Indian Film producers are known to get funding from mafia sources, and Boney had a string of movies that failed and was thought to be in debt. She had a terrible life from what I read, but was pretty much the only acknowledged female 'superstar' in that country - was very well liked all around. Her poor, poor kids though!

Notagoodscreenname said...

Thank you @redrobin.

Veritas said...

Pritanka, she probably loaded the Pill. Just saw she gotta franchise role that was to be somewhat another’s tress.
Probably this guy was the one that intervened

SlimKeith said...

Vanity Fair had a very interesting article about Fan, the HUGE salaries Asian stars receive, tax evasion, her disappearance and charges of tax evasion. The Chinese government put her under house arrest IIRC. I'm kinda high so my memory sucks-read the article! I read it a while ago but It's very good!
