Actress Chitrangada Singh will be seen in doing an item song for the first time in Shirish Kunder’s “Joker”, and no, she is not trying to change her onscreen image. The actress also says, she doesn’t mind doing more item numbers in Bollywood and that her husband liked her desi avatar in her current item song.
“Neither am I trying to change my image nor going to fit in anything. I think one just gets put into a box in which one has to live and be comfortable in it. I am just trying to do something out-of-the-box. It is a chance and risk that you take,” she said.
She added, “He really liked it. He said I really look good in that whole ethnic, rustic look.” She also said, career is something that she rarely discusses with her hubby dear.
Known for her serious roles in films like Hazaaron Khwaishen Aisi, “Kal: Yesterday and Tomorrow”, Yeh Saali Zindagi and a commercial drama “Desi Boyz”, doing an item number was definitely risky. However, the actress says, it was worth it.
“One thing I want to clarify is that I neither want to change my image nor I am trying to fit in anything…I was trying to do something out of the box. It’s a chance that you take, it’s a risk. Sometimes you fall flat on your face. Sometimes you don’t. But I think it’s worth taking the risk. I had a good time doing it,” Chitrangada said.
The song is titled “Kafirana” and is directed by Shirish Kunder. The film “Joker” features Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha and is coming out on Aug 31.
