‘I WANT MORE RELEASES EVERY YEAR’
Actor-producer Chitrangda Singh wants to keep working and looking for interesting roles
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.”
