Chitrangda Singh recollects how she started off in Bollywood! Says showbiz was in her destiny – Times of India

She made an entry in Bollywood at a time when married actresses had no scope for work. However, in her case, she only made her debut after she was three years into a marriage. The actress who got married in 2001 was doing <a href="https:// bollywoodvibe.com” > modeling and marked her entry in Bollywood with Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi only in 2003.


Remembering how it all started for her, Chitrangda says, “Well, I had done <a href="https:// bollywoodvibe.com” > modeling and had appeared in some music videos. And then I was happily married. I wasn’t trying to get into Bollywood at all. I think Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi that marked my Bollywood debut was just written in my destiny. Director Sudhir Mishra was hell bent that he didn’t want a <a href="https:// bollywoodvibe.com” > model as his Geeta (the character) in the film. He had auditioned so many NSD (National School of Drama) actors for that role. There was someone in the production who suggested that Sudhir meet me as I had worked in a music video that was directed by Gulzar saab.”



She further adds, “At that time, I was to fly with my (former) husband (Golfer, Jyoti Randhawa) to Korea for his tournament. However, since I got this call I stayed back. After the auditions Sudhir was still hell-bent that he didn’t want to cast a <a href="https:// bollywoodvibe.com” > model. Swanand (Kirkire) who was helping Sudhir with the auditions coached me for that audition on how to deliver my lines etc. Sudhir wanted to cast someone experienced as the actress had to act opposite Kay Kay Menon and we all know what a fantastic actor he is. However, there was some spark Sudhir saw in me and agreed to work with me. People say that they struggled a lot to get into B-town, but I didn’t do much to land myself in Bollywood (Smiles).” She made an entry in Bollywood at a time when married actresses had no scope for work.
