Chitrangada Singh in Krrish 2 or Race 2
Finally the time has arrived for which Chitrangada Singh – the dusky beauty had been craving for since a long time. She is starring in a full-fledged movie – Desi Boyz which is releasing this year on 25th November. This is indeed a memorable year in her life. She has been casted opposite Akshay Kumar. Desi Boyz is a multi starrer film and also has John Abraham and Deepika Padukone in lead. This young lady had already made her debut in 2003 in Hazaaron Khwaishein Aesi which was directed by Sudhir Mishra. She got her acting first offer when she was in 9th Std. She was approached to portray Smita Patel in a documentary.
Years later, Chitrangada realized the need of moving from Smita kind of serious roles to much lighter roles where she could portray the other side of her talent. She was very comfortable and happy to play Tanya. She discovered that comedy comes to her very naturally. Shirish Kunder has signed her for an item song for his film “Joker”. This film will have Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha in lead role.
Besides Desi Boyz, the news of Chitrangada being cast in the sequels like Krrish 2 and Race 2 was in air. Chitrangada was approached to play the baddie in the sequel of Krrish. In order to prepare for the fighting scenes, Chitrangada even went to China and Hong Kong to learn Taekwondo and Kickboxing. The role demanded her to do lots of sky-diving stunts and hence she was given a course in accelerated freefall. This accelerated free fall is nothing but a form of sky – diving where you jump from 14000 feet above the sea level. But then, due to some reasons Chitrangada bowed out and role went to the Murder 2 lady Jacqueline Fernandes. Jacqueline was even approached by the director duo – Abbas Mastan for the sequel of Race. She opted for Race 2 by turning down the role of baddie in Krrish 2. According to sources, Jacqueline dropped the role in Krissh2 as it demanded a kissing scene with Hrithik Roshan and she was not comfortable with the same. Finally, the role is now being offered to Kangana Ranaut. Let’s see, if she could challenge the Desi Superman.
Even Chitrangada was offered a role in Race 2 which is now bagged by Ameesha Patel. It has been said that the role in Race 2 demanded some exposing scenes. However, Chitrangada denied to all this news and said that she is unable to do the film because she didn’t had dates and nothing else.
According to the reports, Chitrangada has signed a film with Sudhir Mishra in which she will be playing the character of a slut. This narrative of the film seems to be similar to that of Priyanka Chopra’s Aitraaz which came out in the year 2004. Mishra’s film stars Arjun Rampal opposite Chitrangada. This is for the first time audience will get to see a Hindi movie in which a woman destroys her lover’s life just to fulfill and get along with her ambitions.
