Chitrangada Singh’s new avatars
First she opted for a glamorous role in ‘Desi Boyz’ and then she gave a nod to an item number. Actress Chitrangada Singh, otherwise known for serious roles, surprised all and sundry last year and says the response has been encouraging.
The dusky beauty, who will be seen on an upcoming episode of UTV Stars’ ‘Superstar Santa’, made her Bollywood debut in 2003 with ‘Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi’, and was subsequently seen in films like ‘Sorry Bhai!’, ‘Basra’ and ‘Yeh Saali Zindagi’.
‘Desi Boyz’, which also featured Akshay Kumar, John Abraham and Deepika Padukone, was a radically different project for her. Nevertheless, she loved it, and the audience loved her in it too.
No wonder she feels her fans will appreciate her item song in Shirish Kunder’s 3D project ‘Joker’.
“The item song was hard, we rehearsed for it a lot and it has turned out to be fabulous. It is not into-the-face, the music is very catchy and the choreography by Farah (Khan) is very sensuous. It was great fun doing it,” said the 35-year-old.
In 2012, she is looking forward to ‘I, Me Aur Main’ with John, and Sudhir Mishra’s film with Arjun Rampal.
“‘I, Me Aur Main’ is going to be a great film. John is fantastic in it. It is an emotional, yet comedy film about a man, his relationships, his busy life in a metro city...it’s basically about men. The film was a lot of fun and has a lot of drama,” she said of the movie, expected to release within the first quarter of the year.
“Sudhir’s film is about sexual harassment, it is about a woman’s ambition in the workplace and how that is curbed...so it’s an interesting script, and I am extremely excited about it,” she added.
In the meantime, she has had to turn down an offer to work with Kamal Haasan, who had reportedly contacted her for a role in his Hindi-Tamil bi-lingual ‘Vishwaroopam’. But she had to refuse as the dates clashed with those she kept aside for Mishra’s film.
