Chitrangda Singh is debuting Tollywood against Nagarjuna in the new film titled Rummy. In a recent chit chat with times of india, she said all women are seductresses.
I don’t do the seductress bit intentionally. But the idea is to definitely be who you are essentially,” says Chitrangda Singh, who walked the ramp for Ritu Kumar in Delhi last week. Is she saying that she’s indeed a seductress? “Aren’t we all? All women are seductresses at some point in life. That’s the whole idea and the mystery of being a woman,” she laughs.
The news is that Chitrangda will be working with Kareena Kapoor in one of her next films. “Yes, I’m looking forward to it. She’s number one, she does stuff like Omkara, then she does Kambakkht Ishq and she also does Golmaal Returns,” she says.
And how does it feel to be in Delhi, considering she’s moved to Mumbai now? “It’s not that I’m in Mumbai all the time. I’ll start shooting for a film from 25 October and a house in Mumbai will save travel,” she explains. And what about her son Zoravar? “Oh, he comes with me when I go to Mumbai and so does my mother. I travel with an entourage!”
After Sorry Bhai marked her comeback in B-town, Chitrangda’s got four films in her kitty and says that she’s reading more scripts. “I’m doing two films with Sudhir Mishra, there’s another one with Abhay Deol and one with a new director, Navdeep Basra. It’s an action film and I’ll also take classes for it next year,” she tells us.
Talking like that, Chitrangda sure seems to have moved on. But what about those people who’re still digging skeletons from her past, saying she left B’town after Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi, and that it happened because of her husband – golfer Jyoti Randhawa?
“Those conversations just go on and on. Now, we need to talk about the fact that I’m back. It’s been three-and-ahalf years and I’m tired of answering those questions. It’s great that I’m getting to work again,” she says.
And since the conversation has gone back to her career, the audience was waiting to see her opposite Shiney once again, which couldn’t happen. Has she been in touch with him or his family? She says, “I don’t know his wife, Anu, too well, but I know about him through Sudhir (Mishra), who’s in constant touch with Anu and Shiney. I do hope that he comes out of it. Till nothing’s proven, it can’t be said that he’s guilty. I really don’t understand that part of law. How does it keep somebody locked up till he’s proven guilty?” she asks. A successful debut, a hiatus from the arclights to savour family life and now a comeback that looks promising, life does seem to have come full circle for the actress.
