The whole idea of do­ing any­thing that comes one’s way only be­cause one needs to re­main vis­i­ble is not re­ally valid or true for me.

CHI­TRANGDA SINGH AC­TOR-PRO­DUCER

Be­sides turn­ing a pro­ducer this year with Soorma, star­ring Diljit Dosanjh and Taapsee Pannu, ac­tor Chi­trangda Singh also made a come­back of sorts on the big screen af­ter a gap of five years. And she says that she loves be­ing in front of the cam­era and wants to act in as many films as pos­si­ble. How­ever, she adds that she can’t take up just any project for the heck of be­ing vis­i­ble.

“It is not like I am not in­ter­ested in act­ing. As an ac­tor, I would want more [film] re­leases every year. [It’s just that] you try and wait for the right kind of parts. I want to keep work­ing and look­ing for roles that will be in­ter­est­ing to play. I hope that I get the good ones [roles],” says Chi­trangda.

She adds, “The whole idea of do­ing any­thing that comes one’s way only be­cause one needs to re­main vis­i­ble is not re­ally valid or true for me.”

Chi­trangda had two re­leases this year — Sa­heb, Biwi Aur Gang­ster 3 and Baazaar, both of which didn’t fare well as ex­pected at the box of­fice, but her pro­duc­tion de­but, Soorma, re­ceived a fairly good re­sponse. Calling the year bit­ter­sweet, the ac­tor says she is re­ally glad that Soorma was a suc­cess be­cause she had given twoand-a-half years of her life to the project. “I am glad it did well. I thought the film will get half a de­cent re­sponse be­cause there were so many other biopics re­leas­ing this year,” she says.

And the suc­cess of this maiden pro­duc­tion has mo­ti­vated her to jump right into her sec­ond film as a pro­ducer. She in­forms, “I do have a cou­ple of scripts that I like and I will be de­vel­op­ing it next year.”
