Sudhir gave me life as an actor: Chitrangada Singh

Mumbai: Actress Chitrangada Singh says she is thankful to filmmaker Sudhir Mishra for giving her life as an actor.

She was first cast in Mishra`s 2003 film ‘Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi’, and is often called as his muse.

"Sudhir gave me a life as an actor. I owe him so much. Sudhir is a qualified man. He is a psychologist and he has a degree in that. So he understands different persons, and the way he directs his actors is outstanding," Chitrangada told reporters.

She will be seen in Mishra`s next film ‘Inkaar’ too, and says she has experimented with three different looks in the movie.

"I am quite open to experimenting with different looks. In this film, I have explored three different looks. This film is a story spanning over seven years, so I have to look like a college kid initially who works as an intern, then a corporate look and then wear a much more mature look," she said.

"Inkaar" is based on the theme of sexual harassment at the workplace and falls under the category of an A certificate movie. However, Chitrangada says she is open to such movies as long as there is strong content.

"I think the censor board is doing a great job. I am open to do an adult film as long as it has a strong content and (it is not) just not to titillate the audience," the 36-year-old said.

‘Inkaar’ also features Arjun Rampal. It is slated to release Jan 18, 2013.
