Chitrangada Singh got people talking recently after walking out of Babumoshai Badookbaaz after a furious altercation with the director. While the actress has lambasted the directed in media for having asked her to do some rather unwarranted raunchy scenes, the people from the production team have maintained that it was her attitude that created the ruckus in first place. What’s not good news for her fans is that this was the only film the actress, who turns 40 this August, had in her kitty. In fact, for anyone who watched Hazaaron Khawaishein Aisi when it released 13 years ago, Chitrangada Singh’s career graph could leave them bewildered. Touted as the next possible Smita Patil, Chitrangada never quite made it anywhere towards being iconic. Instead, her career seems to be riddled with misses and goof-ups that possibly cost Bollywood a rather interesting star! Here, we look at some judgments that pushed femme fatale’s career down the hill.
Chitrangada was approached to portray the role, that finally went to Kangana Ranaut, in Krrish 3. The actress did confirm that she was to do the film but could not due to date clashes with another film. Sources from Rakesh Roshan’s office, however, had revealed that the filmmaker was unhappy with the fee Chitrangada had asked for. The film went on to become a money spinner. Ironically, the film that she had apparently given her dates to did not work out either. A major miss that Chitrangada later accepted she rued.
Much before Race 2 got made with Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernendez and Ameesha Patel, Chitrangada Singh was one of the actresses who was approached. She never made it to the final cast. The role went to Ameesha Patel after, apparently, Chitrangada refused to wear the clothes that the character needed. Here too the actress cited the same ‘date’ excuse when questioned by the media.
Chitrangada Singh was Sudhir Mishra’s first choice for the Chandramukhi in Aur Devdas (in production), an adaptation of the classic novel Devdas. The actress had, in fact, spoken elaborately on why she was kicked about playing the character in an interview with a reputed magazine. However, things went wrong after the relationship the two shared, turned sour. For many years before that there were consistent rumours linking up Chitrangada with the director. A sour relationship also meant she is practically out of Sudhir Mishra’s next film Mehrunnissa.
Earlier this year Chitrangada was approached for a film called Kalpanik by producer Samir Ingle (known for financing Tanu Weds Manu). Chitrangada had agreed to do the film and even put her own suggestion that the producer should sign Randeep Hooda for the lead opposite her. However, as soon as the producer finalized Arbaaz Khan for the film the actress allegedly avoided all calls and walked away from the film. This also means she upset Salman Khan, who had been a good friend to her through the last couple of years, especially since her divorce.
These apart, there were multiple other offers, including one with the producers of Delhi Belly, that never materialized due to one reason or another. To rise over the tide Chitrangada even went on to do a seductive item number in 2015 hit Gabbar Is Back featuring Akshay Kumar. Though the song worked, it did not translate into work. In the meantime, the actress also made public her plans to turn a producer with a biopic on Indian hockey player Sandeep Singh, which failed to take off too. We at Follo, of course, wish the actress the best. We hope to see her bounce back, yet again, like she did in 2008 with Sorry Bhai after disappearing for close to five years post her first two films. 40, after all, is the new 30 and she does not look a day older!
