Chitrangda Singh to debut in the digital space with Taj Mahal will play Mumtaaz? – After turning producer with 2018’s biopic Soorma, Chitrangda Singh might soon make a foray into the digital space. Chitrangada, who was last seen in Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3, is in talks for a digital series. The project in question, is helmed by Triangle Films. The production firm, founded by Nikhil Sinha, is making its digital debut with a magnum opus. Titled Taj Mahal, the project is said to be one of the most prestigious ventures in the digital space. The series will be a Zee 5 original. Although the project is currently only in the writing stage, makers have started casting for it as well. For the primary cast, makers are in talks with popular Bollywood names.
And we have exclusively found out that Chitrangda Singh is one of the names being considered to play the female lead. Apparently, the character that Singh will essay will be that of Mumtaaz Mahal. As we know, the Empress consort of the Mughal Empire was the inspiration behind the monument of love that stands tall in Agra. From what we have heard talks are on with the actress. Although she hasn’t signed the papers yet, an insider confides that it all looks likely to fall in place. Our source has told us, “The makers are keen on roping in Chitrangda as they think she has the look to pull off a character like this.” If this happens, it will be Singh’s digital debut and also her first stint in the historical genre.
Taj Mahal is apparently the dark tale behind the white monument. Nikhil Sinha is also directing the project. Nikhil’s better half, Sohanna Sinha is keenly involved in the project as well. When BollywoodLife contacted Sohanna, she said, “Nothing is finalised now. We are still at the writing stage.” We dropped a text to Chitrangda, however, we didn’t get a revert till the time of filing the story.
Nikhil has an interesting repertoire on the TV front, especially with regards to the larger-than-life stuff. He has produced the popular Devon Ke Dev…Mahadev and other shows like Siya Ke Raam, Mahakumb and such.
