Item numbers weren’t a planned move for Chitrangada
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.
