If you are watching and hearing or hating Arshi Khan’s antics and abuses on Bigg Boss Season 11 on Colors TV, you must meet the publicist and spin doctor, Flynn Remedios who grilled, tutored, manipulated and made’ Arshi Khan into the mean and maniac media machine that she is today.
Remedios who is Mumbai-based is a veteran journalist and edits and publishes several blogs and entertainment gossip news sites.
Arshi Khan may have changed boyfriends in 3 years, but one man has been with her from almost day one, from the day she entered filmdom and that is none other than her publicist, adviser and father figure’ Flynn Remedios.
You must know that almost all of Arshi Khan’s one liners and quotes that went viral on Twitter including the famous Yes I had sex with Afridi were coined and penned down by her publicist and not by Arshi Khan.
Says our source, “Yes, Arshi Khan conveyed her thoughts, sentiments and feelings to her publicist, who put them into words, sharing them on her official Twitter handle, which he operates for the last two years.
Remedios is no stranger to the media circus. A former Times of India and Economic Timesjournalist, he has covered all beats – fashion, entertainment, crime, politics, business and finance as well as technology and has over a career spanning 25 years worked with almost every print newspaper in India, be it The Indian Express, The Asian Age, The Observer of Business & Politics (Sunday Observer), Free Press Journal, Bombay Times, The Afternoon Dispatch & Courier as well as magazines like Buisiness India, Island and Showtime (f
At some point or the other for varying duration, he has also handled imaging, PR and media for Bollywood personalities like Rakhi Sawant (Bigg Boss 1) Sherlyn Chopra (Bigg Boss 3), Shradha Sharma (Bigg Boss 5), Mehek Chahal (Bigg Boss 5), Claudia Ciesla (Bigg Boss 3), former Miss Universe Yukta Mukhi , south film star Gehana Vasisth, NRI actress Pearl Raah, Bhojpuri actress Nisha Yadav, veteran film actress Poonam Dasgupta Luthra and several other lesser known models and artistes as well as business persons and brands all over the country.
Unfortunately, his association with a couple of clients like Sherlyn Chopra ended on a sour note, a blemish that otherwise affected a brilliant journalistic and media career.
He himself tries to stay out of the limelight, while catapulting his clients into hectic media frenzy. Remedios is very modest and guards his privacy vigorously. You won’t find a single photograph of his online, and refused to give us a photograph for this story.
Remedios says what he does for a living or as a professional service is very different from what he personally is. “I have to make a living and this is my professional obligation to my client. There is a slot for everyone in the media business and as you can see, shows like Bigg Boss thrive on controversy and voyeurism. In India, we are still a bit conservative, but in the West, you will find several TV shows that vie for TRPs trying to outdo each other in controversy and sleaze.
