Item num­bers weren’t a planned move for Chi­tran­gada

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure - IANS

Af­ter fea­tur­ing in films like Hazaaron Kh­waishein Aisi and Yeh Saali Zindagi, ac­tor Chi­tran­gada Singh (right) was seen groov­ing to Kundi Mat Khad­kao Raja, a raunchy song in Gab­bar Is Back (2015). She said there was no strat­egy be­hind choos­ing an item num­ber.

Be­fore Kundi Mat Khad­kao Raja, Chi­tran­gada had done an­other item num­ber for Shirish Kun­der’s Joker. “I didn’t make any strat­egy that I would do item num­bers. It just came my way. Mr. Sanjay Leela Bhansali (pro­ducer) called me for the song in Gab­bar is Back and Ak­shay Ku­mar was also a part of it. We came to­gether, I heard the song and I took it as part of a job. So I did it,” said Chi­tran­gada, who’ll per­form in Dubai as part of Asia’s big­gest New Year bash.

Chi­tran­gada also wants to per­form on vet­eran ac­tor He­len’s songs at the event.

“It’s very dif­fi­cult to choose one song to per­form from so many of her songs. I like to groove on any song of hers. But I would es­pe­cially like to per­form on Piya Tu Ab Toh Aaja,” she said.
