Soorma producer Chitrangda Singh You remain relevant only through good work
Chitrangda Singh, who is making her production debut with hockey player Sandeep Singh’s biopic Soorma, said that while ‘out of sight is out of mind’ adage holds true for Bollywood, one tries to stay relevant by doing quality cinema. The actor was last seen in a full-fledged role in 2013’s I, Me Aur Main but she will be soon back on screen with Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 and Baazaar.
“There was lot of work that came my way but I turned it down. I think it is important to enjoy the work you do. I choose what makes me happy and is believable. When you do a good job onscreen, you stay relevant,” Chitrangda said.The actor, who made her debut in 2003 with Sudhir Mishra’s critically-acclaimed Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi and went on to do films such as Yeh Saali Zindagi, Inkaar and Desi Boyz.
“I used to think sometimes, what if I had done things differently and not taken a break. I was going through some personal issues in 2013-14. And whatever was coming my way, I did not like that,” she said.The actor, however, is happy to have carved a niche for herself despite being an outsider.
“This place forgets you soon. I am glad I have had good experience. Today, there is young blood and there will be that much of a choice for directors and producers but I have always played slightly different parts. I have got in here after I got married and that has not made difference to my work,” she said.Soorma came her way in 2015 and she was not even planning to become a producer at that time.
“There was no strategy, no plan, it happened organically. I think when you are at peace in your head, you end up being at the right place at the right time,” she said.
