Exclusive: Chitrangda Singh on her weapon of choice in career, life and more


Actors are always busy juggling not one but many lives. With on-screen and off-screen characters constantly overlapping, sometimes overcoming the illusion that surrounds this profession becomes quite a challenge. A case in point is Chitrangda Singh, whose final appearance in Modern Love: Mumbai with Arshad Warsi received a lot of rave reviews for the simplicity of the story and her poignant portrayal of the character. , the feeling is painfully real. She shares how girlfriends come to her and tell her about the instant connection they feel with her character in Modern Love. “My male friends started to see things differently after watching Cutting Chai,” she said. That’s how a profound story like that can make you feel. And that was a special moment for me.” Plus, she continued, “It’s great that even though you do less, people still remember your work. I think this is the biggest compliment for an actor. It just keeps you going.”

Chitrangda marches to its own rhythm and wouldn’t have it otherwise. Staying relevant is key, being remembered is the dream. She was as excited about the five-minute role as she was excited about the lead role. Her only criterion is that the project must bring something challenging to her and, in turn, allow her to bring something new to the audience.

“I will be honest,” she said. To some extent, Bob Biswas is Abhishek Bachchan’s movie. It’s all about Bob Biswas. Modern Love is even more difficult because this is a short film but has just connected with the audience. I don’t think screen time makes much of a difference. It’s your performance.”

She has had a selective career and does not regret her decision. “Perhaps I am a bit picky,” she commented. “But having said that, I think every artist is selective,” she commented. It’s a bit of a cliché to repeat what you’ve done before. Then you just keep getting those versions. So yeah, I’m a bit selective and I try to do things that excite me. Chitrangada likes to call the spade the spade. She’s not afraid to speak her mind, even if it means controversial.

She would rather leave a project than compromise her principles. Such an incident happened in the recent past and Chitrangada gave his reason. She explains, “There are some things that fall within the norm of professionalism, and then there are things that go beyond that and become personal. When at work, something is bothering you. I do my job as an actor on set, but when the atmosphere becomes personally insulting, I think then I don’t even know if I’m an actor or a person. take that call, but you have to take the call.”

Not many people know that the actress possesses more talents than one. She talks about the artistic side she has. She is passionate about painting with charcoal and knives, a skill she inherited from her mother who used to paint. And she revealed that she is also a fashionista. What makes this conversation even more interesting is that she truly admires none other than Sonam Kapoor Ahuja for her impeccable fashion sense. “Sonam just transforms into a different character with every outfit she chooses. It’s great that she experimented.

I think she understands fashion, the complete idea of ​​it.” Then the actress revealed her style mantra. She points out, “Anything easy, anything simple and elegant, whether it’s beauty, whether it’s people or clothes. That’s what sticks with me. I think that’s my style, a little bit more.

We talked about the character she found most appealing when it came to costume design. She excitedly mentioned her character Maya in Inkaar. “I did an in-depth look at the costumes in that movie and collaborated a lot with the costume designer. I play a woman who is very career focused and wants her outfit in the movie to reflect that choice,” she regrets. In her upcoming film Gaslight also starring Vikrant Massey and Sara Ali Khan, the actress once again conversed a lot with the costume department about what her character should wear. “My character in Gaslight is completely different from me in real life,” she said. “It got me super excited because I knew it would give me a chance to experiment with clothes. Everything she wears becomes part of that character and scene. So that’s why I thought, okay, this is how we can make her more strict, or this is how we can make her sexy or sexy or in your face and let you down. I had a lot of fun. And they paid attention to my input.”

She definitely had a blast with her Gaslight co-stars. She beamed, “Both are very natural actors. Vikrant, we all know how good he is. And Sara, I’m so glad we worked together. She is like the energy bunny. You have to literally contain her energy. But she is a very lovely person. I had a great time working with them.”

That’s probably what makes her films so interesting, as her co-stars are always so diverse, making the experience all the more enriching. Ask her to name a co-star she enjoys working with the most, and she immediately names Akshay Kumar for all the joy he brings on set. She warmly talks about him and his kind demeanor on set to boost her co-star’s confidence. She fondly remembers the late Irrfan Khan, with whom she used to work at Yeh Saali Zindagi. She shared, “I also learned a lot from just watching him on set. The way he improvises, the way he makes sure you don’t look at anyone other than him in the shot. You will not look at other characters. It’s just an artist’s trick that I guess you’ll learn over time. So Irrfan is awesome.

As we near the end of this tete-e-tete, the actress reveals her vision of what will really challenge her as an actress. Needless to say, like most talented artists, comedy was something she felt would really make her test the crafting skill she had built up within her. She said, “It’s easy to make people cry. Tragedy is always easier to sell. But it’s hard to make people laugh. You need great comic time. We’re sure that as an actor, Chitrangda will show that as well. Filmmakers, take note.
