Besides two film projects, actress Chitrangda Singh will be supporting the cause of saving tigers this year
AFTER a dream start with Sudhir Mishra’s Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi, Chitrangda Singh has gone on to do movies like Desi Boyz, Inkaar and I, Me Aur Main. She calls herself a nomad at heart and loves river rafting and sky diving, when not busy with movie schedules in Mumbai. Recently, Animal Planet roped in Abhay Deol and Singh as the brand ambassadors for their show, Where Tigers Rule. The duo will create awareness about the threats affecting the survival of tigers We got talking to Singh about her latest projects:
As an actor I am greedy and want to be part of good cinema. I enjoy watching my contemporaries work and would love to be part of movies like Omkara, Gulaab Gang and Dedh Ishiya which have a lot of focus on women.
A lot of genres that come along are thrillers and revenge-based movies. But I want to do movies that have something in it for me. A pretentious script is no good. At the same time, a good comedy or a period film will be very exciting.
From the current crop of directors, I would like to work with Vikas Bahl, who is doing Queen, and Sujoy Ghosh.
I am more than an animal lover. I remember when I went on a vacation with my friends and family to Kanha, we found tiger footprints and we followed it all the way to the river. I have loved animals right from my childhood.
I love spending time with my family and travelling. I like Dubai for its shopping and Bali for its beaches.
