Mumbai, April 07: After a stellar performance in "Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi" and "Kal - Yesterday And Tomorrow", actress Chitrangada Singh bowed out of the industry because she felt "betrayed" and cheated.

“Things got sour when I started getting bad press about my husband (golfer Jyoti Randhawa) spoiling things for my career. The attack became too personal. It made me angry. I felt betrayed,” Chitrangada, who returns with Onir’s “Sorry Bhai”, told reporters.

“I didn’t want to give any importance to the malicious people by trying to explain myself or how things were between my husband and I. Maybe I took things too seriously. I decided to just quit,” added the actress, who feels this is the right time to come back.

“I think there’s far more free flow of ideas and creativity. So many exciting filmmakers! I think Sriram Raghavan is amazing. I’d have loved to do his ‘Johnny Gaddar’. What a lovely time to be in Hindi movies,” she said.

She will also be seen in Sudhir Mishra’s version of “Devdas”, as Chandramukhi.

“My Chandramukhi won’t be a nautch girl. She’ll be a political socialite, a sensuous wheeler-dealer. She has to have her own charm and aura.”
